Morning all.

Good Morning all, and firstly I would like to say hi to our new followers....welcome to the blog, and my little craft make yourselves at home...

I have had two fantastic days at the NEC and it has been so good catching up with friends....and ladies from my workshops...I have met lovely new crafters and been inspired by the most amazing demonstrations...

The Claritystamp stand looked brilliant as always, so many must have products.....knowledgable and helpful staff, and off course top class demonstrations by Barbara and Maria.

If you are going today or tomorrow do go and say hello...

I am travelling back home today and so looking forward to a snuggle with little Eric....he can go out for walks I think Tomorrow is going to be interesting.....Karl was telling me that yesterday he just sat on the path and wouldn't venture any more.

I have a card to share today that I made last month for my brothers of his hobbies is fishing...

It uses a Clarity stencil, shaving foam, distress re inkers, Clarity stamps, Archival ink and Glossy Accents.

I love using shaving foam through a stencil, it gives such a unique effect...

I have to say it is interesting how people do vary....and how some people behave in the strangest of ways....and leave you thinking that you don't believe what you have just seen....

A good friend of mine pointed this out to me recently.....and I think it is very apt....

On that note I will say have a good weekend , what ever you are doing....

Keep safe, be kind to each other and enjoy today ....because we really don't know what tomorrow has In store for us...

Much love,

Jo. xxxx




  1. Fab card, I do love the shaving foam technique. I also like the saying "speak as you wish to be spoken to". Happy cuddles and walkies with Tess and Eric xx

    1. I agree Lisa, and it is such a shame that some other people seem to forget this...hope you have had a good weekend...x

  2. Great card Jo I'm sure your brother was delighted with it.
    Great to spend time with you at the NEC and also to catch up with so many fabulous friends - more new ones each year which is fabulous!!!!
    Enjoy your time with little Eric this weekend xxxx

  3. So lovely to see you Jo, love the effect on the card. xxxx

  4. It was great to catch up with you Jo. I'm sure your brother loved his card. Have a lovely weekend with Eric, Tess and the family! xx

  5. What a fabulous card for a man. Spot on as always Jo. I like your THINK saying too. Will have to use that with my class when I get back to work.
    I'm sure Eric will learn to love his walks with Tess. It used to take us ages at first with Izzy, and Hamish used to get so bored waiting for her with a look of..."Oh no, not her again Mum!" They are so funny. Make sure you video them.
    Take care and hope you had a pleasant trip home from the NEC.
    Love & hugs Jeanette x
