Birthday weekend.

Good evening and thanks for popping in, I do hope that you had a lovely Bank Holiday weekend.

Mine started on Saturday with our Clarity Manchester workshop, it was another full Groovi class, and we used the fabulous Lilly of the Valley plate. Well it is the flower of the month for May and my Birth flower.

We made two cards and a bookmark


I am really enjoying making these , my new favourite project.

I was totally spoilt by a very yummy Birthday cake, thank you so much Lisa and Freda

And yes it tasted as good as it looked.

On Sunday , it was my Birthday and I was overwhelmed by so many gorgeous cards, flowers, presents and messages . Far too many to name check everyone,,.so a group Thank you all....I really appreciate them all...

It was also my father in laws Birthday , so we went out for lunch.

Would you believe that I made his card on ,

Sunday morning....( well life is just so hectic at the moment )

Here it is


I started with a piece of background card that I had distressed with Oxide inks and water

I stamped the horse with Black Archival ink,

And then made the landscape using Artistry inks and my stencil brushes, and added some colour to the horse with my Spectrum Noir pencils.

Next some charcoal shading

Some matting and layering and more stamping, and a quick card was made....just in the nick of time,,,

Rossella was on tv , so I recorded her and enjoyed watching her on Monday.

I will share my samples with you in my next blog post .

I have workshops in Hazel Grove tomorrow , so I had better go and finish my packing,

Take care all

Much love and hugs
