Here is a card I made for Hobbycraft - you can find details on how to make it
HERE - and if you scroll down you can leave me some 'love' over there with just a click as well (thank you 😊)

Here are a couple of links to the Stitches trade show that I attended last week



It's a stunning day here - I am off into the garden for a couple of weed pulling hours, my green garden bin (trash can) is full to the brim, and the first collection isn't until April, I may be pulling hair instead of weeds by then!......

Family, Stencils and Shows......

I seem to have had a hectic time over the past few weeks, not helped by catching a particularly violent sort of tummy bug from two year old Molly - she bounced back from the bug within hours. Me? It took days!

But I did find time to play with my new Jane Davenport Flower Girl stencil from Spellbinders. you get three stencils in the pack........

I decided to just stencil the face in black ink onto plain white card, and added the flowers to make a flamboyant hat. I just used various distress inks to stencil these

I used chalks to add a bit of colour to her face, and added some texture paste to the stencilled background

 I had to show you this, a pensive photo of 14 year old Kiki at Christmas, she is growing up so fast, and I think she is just beautiful (slight bias here of course!)

A large chunk of last week was taken up with the Stitches UK trade show at the NEC, I will show photos of that this week, although the main body of the show was very much centered around sewing and knitting, not much papercrafting at all. Of course, seeing all the beautiful sewing and knitting I was all fired up to dig out the sewing machine or buy some wool, until I remembered that the only dress I ever made started to come apart after one wash, and the only thing I ever knitted was a scarf for my teddy bear......best stick to paper then!
