A Trio of Spring Artist Trading Cards

 Hello! I'm here today to share a trio of atcs in Spring colours that I created the other day using things from my bits and pieces box as I haven't been able to craft properly due to my hubby (who caught a cold from his father) passing his cold to me last weekend but unfortunately for me it went to my sinuses then on Monday went down on my chest so I've been feeling somewhat poorly.

The backgrounds on these are my ever useful ink spray overflow or inky stencil presses on the spare paper I always have on one side when spraying ink through masks or stencils.

The flowers were stamped on inky paper too and as you can see, you don't need a smaller stamp than the atc as you can use just part of the image as I've done here.

The text comes from one of Lynne's wildflower stamp sets and one of Melina's new DL key stamp sets and fit my chosen theme perfectly.

I hope you're all having a good week and will be back soon.

Some Spring Cards

 Hello on a rather rainy and cold day. I have a few photos to share of some Spring and colourful cards I recently made as well as some photos from a walk over Easter to cheer up a dull day.

These all use my current favourite technique to use up scraps of hand decorated papers using ink sprays, stencils and stamps and the second two use leftover bits of papers designed by Amanda Southern and Melina Dahl for That's Crafty!. As you can see, they're all very bright and cheerful.

These photos were taken over the Easter weekend when we went walking at Angmering woods hoping to find some bluebells but sadly we were a week or so too early as everything is late blooming due to the cold weather we've had this last winter.

Have a great weekend and see you soon.

Back After A Long Blogging Break

 Hello! I'm finally back after rather a long break from blogging as due to family and work commitments there haven't been enough hours in the day to cope with all the social media stuff I should be doing so I'm hoping to gently get back into the swing of things.

I'm over at That's Crafty! blog today with a mixed media piece of artwork that was inspired by the photos I took last summer of the patches of wildflowers along our local coast. It was so lovely to see them with beach huts in the background and I'm eagerly awaiting this year's crop in a couple of months, not to mention the warmer weather too as it's been cold for so long.

You'll find all the details of how I created this by clicking HERE

Here are a couple of pics so that you can see where my inspiration came from 😀

I hope you're all well and managing to cope with the lockdown and will be round to visit as soon as I get a few spare moments.
