Monday morning peace!

Good morning!

Welcome to my blog. It's peaceful in Pool in Wharfedale as the boys are wreaking havoc at nursery instead of here and I have the morning to be creative (only do the housework if it's desperately needed). Finally putting the pen to paper - so to speak - to talk about crafty card creations and anything else that comes to mind.

Managed to come up with a Father's Day card for my dad over the weekend, in between taking the boys up Almscliffe Crag, nagging the husband to mow the lawn and repotting my beloved grandma's azalea. 

It's a Lily of the Valley stamp 'Dad's the Word' and sentiment in Segoe Script printed out. The papers are Jenny Ellory from a free collection with Crafts Beautiful. I coloured the card candi with my 'Prussian' Promarker.

Of course, I made plenty of mistakes as usual - the major one was using the wrong card to stamp on and so my colours have bled. I have got the right card in my stash but mixed up my whites - schoolgirl error. But I'm not going to worry about it, I doubt my dad will notice! 

I have only been making cards for about 18 months and I am learning more with every card I make, and really enjoy looking for inspiration on Pinterest, blogs and at Craft Shows.

Feel free to get in touch, add comments, whatever, and thanks for looking!

Nearly pick-up time so better run,
