How did we get to September???

 My girls finally went to school today! I'm not sure how we got to September - there just seemed to be months of never ending, incredibly hard home school and then, wham! All of a sudden it's September. Hopefully tomorrow I will feel slightly more sane and get to do some crafting :-)

I did manage to get this card made earlier in week though. It's using an image and papers from the LOTV new release. There are lots of new papers and images and you can overly the images onto the paper as I did with this card. It's a brilliant new collection :-)

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas . . .

Okay, so it's not really beginning to look a lot like Christmas but I feel like I need something to look forward to! 

I brought out the Tonic die again for this one. I really like it with these new digi stamps from LOTV.  This snowman stamp can be found here.

I have a mountain of school clothes to label but the will is just not there today. Maybe I'll do some colouring and try again tomorrow?

New penguins :-)

 Another one from the new LOTV release :-) I love these penguins!

I'm now down to my last scraps of Christmas papers. Any suggestions of lovely Christmas backing papers would be gratefully received!!

New release from Lili of the Valley

 How cute are these penguins?? They will be in the Lili of the Valley Etsy shop from tomorrow. 

I teamed the image up with the Mythical Glade Layering Die from Tonic.

I have done practically no crafting during lockdown because I was homeschooling my 2 girls. It's definitely been a challenge. I felt like a total novice when I sat down to craft yesterday and I think it's going to be a long while before I get back in to the crafty groove. I definitely need to do a Kit and Clowder class - I just hope it's safe for the girls to return to school in September and I get time to craft!

Hugs xxxx

Still colouring!

I've coloured 6 of the Crafter's Companion Molly Harrison fairies now. They're just my thing and I'm sure it's cheaper than therapy!
This one is one of my favourites- but each time I colour one my favourite changes!

I can't buy them all (the puppy fund finally has some money in it so I'm not spending anything) so I'm glad the manager of the local craft shop has lent me the stamps to make samples for the her :-)

Colouring marathon!

The manager of the craft shop where I run classes lent me lots of the Molly Harrison fairy stamps so that I could colour them and make samples for the shop. I've been colouring all week - my eyes are totally boggled now!

This fairy is one of my favourites, although to be fair, there isn't a rubbish stamp among them.

It was all going really well until a great big blob of ink fell from a juicy pen! I did my best to save it but it's all I see when I look at this one.

It's been a bit of a crazy week - drama everywhere. If this week is the same I may hide in a cupboard. Shhh, tell no one!

Amethyst Fairy

Happy days - the Molly Harrison fairy stamps from Crafter's Companion are out :-) This one is Poppies of Amethyst. She's just lovely - but then they are all beautiful.

I'm entering this into:
