Play Date...Craftin Style

Hi peeps,

Good to see you again!

So what have I been up to? Well! My friend Sue and I decided it had been far too long since we had a craftin session together, way back in January in fact for her birthday so we decided a little me/us time was in order as neither had created anything just for ourselves or for the fun of it for ages.

So a play date was set up! The dog walked and the kettle on and off we went...

We started by scarping some PaperArtsy fresco paints over a canvas with an old credit card, mine was all abstract and messy like while Sue's was more subtle and controlled LOL.

Sue had some new PaperArtsy JOFY stamps that she needed to ink up so they came along on the play date too.

Although we used pretty much the same stash we managed to produce very different final artwork, you can see Sue's HERE. Just awesome!

we had a lovely session and I look forward to the next. Here's my finished piece in various guises.. 

Now when you have a number of weddings to attend in close proximity that means you have a number of anniversary cards at the same time too LOL....


And there's another one next month...

Now sometimes you just have to take photos of things that make you smile and this is one of those quirky moments when I just had to stop the car get out and take a pic whether people round thought I was bonkers or not who cares!! LOL

Dandelions growing in the kerbside, they ran almost the length of the road and just looked really bright and carefree, much better than double yellows anyway.

So that's me done for now, thanks for stopping by and leave a comment if you fancy.

Happy Craftin

Since the last time....

Hi Peeps,

Well it's been a while so thought I'd bring you up to date with my little creative madness!

I didn't quite make it to the last batch of PaperArtsy kinda got in the way as it does.

So these first two are the valentine cards I made for myself and my hubby (I know it's not romantic making your own card but no-one is allowed to buy cards in this house!!)


Then came March and I was invited to a 21st (I know at my age LOL), the background was made with my trusty PaperArsty fresco paints, I went down the traditional route of the 'key to the door!'

Now the plan was to make something for Leanne but as usual I didn't give myself enough time to complete what I thought was a simple little book and ended up being a monthly late but hey I got there in the end LOL. 

Here are the pics of the book.

So here is the finished article and following are the individual pages...

Then came a couple birthdays mothers day and a sympathy card...



And finally...thank goodness I hear you say I made this for my great nephew which made me chuckle anyway (if you look carefully you'll see a pic of him in the hot air balloon), the background again using PaperArtsy paints the block design was a variation of Dyan Reaveley.

This is the inside of the card!

So to coin a phrase...'That's all Folks!'

Thanks for stopping by, leave a comment if you fancy.
Happy Craftin
