Something for the weekend!

Off to the Papercrafts Extravaganza at Harrogate tomorrow................ideas at the ready - check, wish list at the ready - check, tickets - check, credit card - check check!

A cheery card to match the forthcoming season...............1st day of spring on Monday and the clocks go forward next weekend.........this is my favourite time of the year :)

Fairy stamp from Little Claire, punched butterflies highlighted with glittery stickers, coloured using pro markers.......yes Martha Stewart punches and freebie backing papers...............The toadstool is highlighted with glitter glue and diamond glaze........I also like to create the illusion of movement adding fine black lines to suggest movement of the butterflies...........hope you like her and that she brings a smile.

Thought I'd also add pictures of the latest additions to our home:



Both Billy and Isla recently came into the care of Trafford Cats Protection.  Billy having been found in the freezing weather in January having been badly injured hiding under bushes and Isla originally a lost little kitten found in the middle of a park in Manchester last autumn.

Both Billy and Isla are settling in well together - just wish that they didn't feel the need to get up with the birds each morning at 5am!


  1. Love your card - this stamp is one of my favourites!

    Your cats look lovely - so nice to think that they have a new chance at like (so long as they don't keep waking you up at 5am!!)

  2. Hi Gaynor, love your gorgeous card and your cats are both lovely. Billy looks so like my Ely and Isla has beautiful eyes and stripey tail. Glad they're getting on together. Thanks for the welcome to the Little Claire's DT. :o)
