New releases from Little Claire

Hope that you have all had the opportunity to enjoy a little warmth in the beautiful sunshine.  Yesterday I went on a mini cruise............ooh I know......sounding posh. The cruise was on a lovely Mersey Ferry  - Snowdrop, Salford Quays Manchester to Liverpool along the Manchester Ship Canal.................and it was wonderful, took 6 hours - herons galore, lots of baby ducklings with their parents, gannets.  The trip along the canal  was amazing through all the different types of bridges and locks.  Passing huge ships coming up the canal to collect scrap metal, cargo and chemical.  It was so very funny.....the crew on the big ships were taking pictures of "the little people" on the Snowdrop ferry.  Saying "little" the capacity is 650 passengers.  The trip was sold out  at 276 passengers.  This meant that should the weather prove inclement there would be plenty of comfortable indoor seating.  Yes I would definitely recommend it. 

So after all that fresh hot air and Mr Sunshine I have made some cards, and keep  topping up the aftersun.............ouch! 

Onto the cards..............

The wheelbarrow is so very versatile......male or female and obviously can be linked seasonally depending on the recipient. The wheelbarrow stamp also comes with a very apt sentiment..............or of course works fab with the circular sentiment stamps.  They are so very easy to use and matt and layer............I'd certainly miss them from my craft box should they go "walkies".

I love the jug with the big daisies.............another make you feel happy stamp, or to show someone you care and perhaps a thank you.

As per normal, punches Martha Stewart, embellished with adhesive pearls,prima flowers, brads and gems.  Images coloured in using Pro Markers and an assortment of backing papers.          NO Glitter glue.......okay I may, just may go back and add some later.
Hope that you like them.  xxGaynor
