Summertime - New Challenge with Little Claire

Hello, 

Another beautiful day – I spent the morning planning for a lesson observation by my Head Teacher next week………………………the weather forecast was for rain today……so thought yep get the planning done……and it has been a glorious day.  So hope the weather is good tomorrow…..I fancy a trip to the seaside for a paddle………and fish and chips……..we shall see.

On the topic of summer days, Little Claire’s latest challenge is to create a bright and cheerful summer card.  I have used Henny Penny with delicious paper from “the stash!”  Coloured using my trusty promarkers, ribbon, glitter glue and of course an adhesive crystal or two.



Summertime.  Little Claire would love to see bright, colourful papers and embellishments.  It would be great if you use a Little Claire image/digi image/topper etc., but Little Claire are more than happy if you would like to use another image.

The prize this month is a gift voucher to the value of £10.00, so you can spend it on lots of Little Claire goodies from their website.

Why not join in with the challenge this month…………………for more details please visit Little Claire’s blog.


Okay brew time me thinks………………………cheerio for now.  XXGaynor

Newbies from Little Claire.........

As part of the Little Claire Design Team I have been a little busy of late............and it has been an absolute pleasure.......lots of new stamp designs and at last I can share a couple of my makes.....



Both designs have followed a similar template......liking this style at present as you may have guessed.
The first card uses the "Nice to Know You" stamp and a "Rebecca Sentiment" and the later card another beautiful design from the "Bird House" range - Wedding.......whilst this card may seem a little different to what we tend to think of as a suitable colour palette for a wedding card......this was for a very special couple in Cornwall who were having a "Hand Tieing Wedding" last weekend.......the backing papers used fitted perfectly.................I really do wish them both well......life has never been easy for them and they are very beautiful and creative people.........All the very best - Gary and Maria xx  The sentiment used is also from Little Claire. xxGaynor

Both cards were created in the same manner as a previous Friday Blog Post for Little Claire..........

Friday Blog Spot - Changing Baby Bird House and Rebecca's Sentiment.

Good Morning,

Hope you are all surviving / enjoying the World Cup - I am diarising this post. currently it is Saturday evening England are playing Italy at half time it is 1 - 1.........quite exciting!

Our daughter asked could I make her a baby girl card for her friend who has just given birth to Allison Jane.

Needless to say not a problem having such cutie new baby stamps from Little Claire and the fabbie sentiment set designed by Rebecca.  So without further ado here goes:

I used a 6" x 6" scalloped card as a tent fold.
Backing papers from the stash from Craftwork Cards.................long time ago.
Craft paper, dotted ribbon, bakers twine, crystal daisies from Little Claire.
Silver charms from "the stash."



 Plus fineliner pen.............




I also created the card in blue...........I hope baby's mum likes her card................Cheerio for now xxGaynor

 I stamped the birdhouses on a separate pieces of card and added using 3D foam pads, a little bow and crystals added...............and yes glitter glue.  Sentiment from Little Claire, promarkers and faux stitches....Love and Hugs is from the Birdhouse stamp set.............
The little boy card has faux stitching and button from a Little Claire Set.........bunting is also from Little Claire.

Freedom!

At last almost caught up with life..............am sure as you mature time speeds up.  Had a crafty afternoon yesterday and when putting my new makes away realised that I hadn't finished posting a further couple of cards from last month's club stamp from Little Claire............possibly as I was also writing a couple of cards too.


When I write the top card I shall also add a sentiment.....so still not quite complete.

This really is a pretty set and once again very versatile............

We are off to Cornwall in the morning for an additional break.......very naughty I know.......but would be very silly to pass up the opportunity!

Going to diarise a couple of blog posts for next week........................yes 1st of the month and another delicious set from Little Claire................
