About Time

I've been tinkling with my inks again after a long abscence.  
This time teaching my friend David how to do a bit of stamping and stencilling. David is a lovely man who has Downs syndrome and is 74 years old. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?

I haven't been completely uncrafty though
I've been spinning
 
And lacemaking   
And more spinning and knitting.....
In fact I've been doing loads of crafting, just haven't gotten around to posting any. 
Hope you like the bits I have done.
Hope this year is smiling in you

Spring colours?

I've finally got round to making a few cards, they were for a challenge but it's such a long time since I started them I can't remember which challenge it was.

These card were made using crafty individuals stamps and a few die cuts.



These stamps are from a chocolate baroque set. The cards were supposed to be Spring colours but somehow they didn't turn out that way. Funny how that happens! 

Think I might be getting back into this crafting lark, I've even done a few journal pages which I've posted on the journal journey's blog. Be lovely if you'd pop over and have a look.

Bye for now

Welcome Little One

Just found this photo on my phone and realised that I probably haven't posted it on here. I made it for my niece and her new baby, Amelia who was born last March and thoroughly enjoyed making it.
The box is made so that the sides create a frame and then the shelf was added to carry the toys. They are stamped from the set which has shelves with different bits on them. Wish I could remember what it's called!
The 'book ' on the lid off the box is die cut using a spellbinders die. I'm quite pleased with the way it's turned out.
Thanks everyone for your kind comments, I'd forgotten what a difference they make to my life. Have a lovely Sunday
