Todays class

Today I spent the day doing a class at Pickwell Farm. Mark Gould taught us the techniques required to make a double sided clock. We used chalk paints with candle wax and also with stamps. The two sides are very different and I can't decide which one I like best.

I had this weekend off work. Saturday I went to a 12 hour crop with the BLOSSOMS down nr Polegate.E Sussex. I made cards, stamped, coloured and chatted with all the lovely ladies there. Its so nice to have seen them more than once this year.

On Sunday I went out with my 2 Aunts and 3rd Cousin (visiting from Canada) to visit the little village where my great,great,great,great grandfather lived. We managed to get the keys for the church and had a look around it too. After that we went back to my Aunts house, where my 2 Uncles and some cousins were waiting. A shame my mum couldn't make it to see her brothers and sisters.

Will try and add some pics later.

Stampendous guitar stamp

Today I finally finished a display piece for Pickwell using the acoustic guitar stamp from Stampendous. I really like the way the different bits turned out. I even heat embossed for the first time in many years.

Sheena stamps!

Today at Pickwell, I used some of the Sheena Douglas stamps with the Spectrum Aqua pens.
I really liked how it turned out. The tractor is attached with 3d pads,but that's not clear from the PIC.

Up to date 21.April 2015

Finally up to date, Of course I haven't put all of my cards up, some of them I never took pictures of, but I now make cards etc for classes and for display, so there will be plenty more...
will put more up next week.

This next one was created with  the Sue Wilson "Love" Die. Love the adhesive pearls too.

This card is made with Sue Wilson Dies and  a Stampendous Stamp. Coloured with spectrum noir pens.
Another selection of cards made with a Woodware stamp. Curios Cat...Think this can be quite versatile.

Graphic 45 stamps

Nearly there, I made these at the beginning of April, Really like the twenties style . 

Zany Zebras part 1.

I couldnt resist going in to the Farm shop to meet Gilbert, the poster boy for the zany zebras trail, which will take place in Southampton in 2016.
Really looking forward to his visit in June this year for the  Pickwell Farm Shops 30th Birthday.

Some older pieces

These cards are made using the backgrounds that I made with distress inks, I think it was around July or August 2014. 

Another new beginning !!

So here I am again, promising myself I will blog regularly. New beginnings -- well it was about a year ago that I started my new job and started making display cards for Pickwell Farm Craft section.
So to start I will upload a few pictures of some of them.
These were created last summer when the new xmas stamps came out.
