I feel like I have been neglecting my blog of late or my attention has been in different directions. Today I went up to do a quick tidy of the Study as I was hopping to get outside and pull some weeds and clean up before putting up some Christmas lights, about two hours later this is what happened.


it all just fell in the frame so easy needless to say I have twice as much mess to clean up now.

I used the clock from the Sence of time stamp set from the spring mini, which I have been wanting to use for a while now, this may be turned into a workshop combining some papers from the urban garden designer series  I can see this as a scrappy page

We were young once

I caught up with some friends on the weekend and they asked me about our photos of when we were young, did I still have them, so the next day I got out the old albums and had a look if there were any more I could work with, as these are pages I had already created

I just wish we had digital cameras back in the good old days I would have so many more pictures and of better quality

Dream and Believe

These are some pages I created a while ago thought I might share. These are my own font  I created one day when I was without a computer and a printer and the border panel I did one day as I sat on the phone on the edge of a news paper


 The scroll is mine as well some times when you revisit old pages or card you can be re inspired you can forget where you once was as you keep moving forward it pays to look back every now and then.


I have used vellum on the words and scroll

Distressed Tilda

This one is on its way:claudns1




This card I made for a life time friend of 30 years where did the time go, and its running late for her Birthday so she can get a look before it arrives in the post. I can still remember first meeting her at High School,  her school bag was all most as big as her.  There are stories about our school days but we want go into that.

It does not matter how far away you are from each other or how often you see each other when you do eventually get together it’s as if time has not moved on, or more wrinkles and grey hair has formed or your kids are grown or now your a granny,  you just pick up from last time.

So cheers…….Happy Birthday ………………..Sending lots of Good wishes your way…….

and if she is still talking to me after this post…… lots of more Birthdays ………….growing old non- gracefully

the colours are not a very good example and hard to capture the bling
