Welcome to my blog. I hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Nothing too fancy, no great skills required, just lots of cards, gifts and perhaps the odd bit of shopping.

My blog contains lots of links to freebies. Without sounding like "mother" can I ask you to leave a kind comment to the generous givers of such fabulous artwork. I know of at least a couple of artists who are feeling a bit unloved at the moment. Thanks. X

Card for Mother in Law.

Speedy came home from work last week, whipped out a tenner and gave it to me. This is most unusual. I looked at him suspiciously and said " what's that for?" Yes, i might have known, it wasn't a gift from him but his mother had given it to him to pass on to me with a request for 2 cards. If only all my customers were so generous ! She always pays me far too much and won't take it back so i make what she asks for and give her a couple more from my collection.This one is for to give to my sister in law.
The image is an Inca Stamp flower Fairies and is quite large so i didn't need to do much with the layout apart from a bit of subtle DCWV paper. I coloured her with Promarkers and added a bit of stickles and some green chalking around the edge.
 The round sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and the card base is 6" x6".

I was going to go for a wander into town but it has gone really black and is pouring with rain so i think i'll wait until tomorrow. I 've got 2 pheasants simmering away in a jalferezi sauce in the slow cooker so dinner is sorted for tonight and tomorrow which leaves me a nice free day. May the sun shine brightly........
