Happy Birthday Mum!

Mum's birthday today and I wanted to make her a card (I usually do!).  This year I used one of Clare Llyod's PaperArtsy stamps together with a paper stack I got a few months ago (and is 'favour of the month' for me at the moment).

Happy Birthday Rosie!

I wanted to make Rosie a special birthday card this year.  I know she likes cats- Jazz is their cat.  He is elderly and not too well, but very much loved.

Wedding season

I guess seeing as it is summer, it is the wedding season.  Best make a few wedding cards then!  I enjoyed going to town on this one.  It uses a DigiStamp Boutique image and my favourite type of hand made rolled roses :-)

Zine swap with friends

Kathy suggested we have a 'friendship' themed zine swap on CMLI and I was tempted to join in.  never made a Zine before.  Mine was done on watercolour paper, stamped in Staz-on and coloured with watercolours.  The stamps were from Clearly Besotted.

Zentangling An Elephant!

I aim to go along with Bentley Heath Country Market to Art in the Park in Leamington this year- I was due to go last year but was ill on the day (tummy bug- you don't want the details!!).  This year's theme is 'The Three Graces' which are actually three elephants which were kept in Leamington to entertain the visitors to the spa.
Mum bought back from France this old ceramic elephant that had seen better days and so I set about upcycling :-)  A coat or two of acrylic eggshell furniture paint and then lots of zentangling with black fineliners.

Crafting for Marie Curie

It's the National Marie Curie 'Tea Party' event this weekend.  I have friends who volunteer at a local MC hospice most weeks, running a craft/art group in daycare.  They are keen fundraisers too and are going to have a craft stall at Marston Green fete on 1st July in aid of Marie Curie's tea party event.  The craft stall will sell things they have made- they are all very talented artists and so it is well worth a look and it all goes to a good cause.
I offered to make a few cards and some brooches for the stall too.
 There is an 'English Tea Party' theme to all the craft so hoping these go down well :-)
