Very Busy Times

Hello Everyone it is an age since I talked with you all.  Very busy times here just now.  Last week I went to stay with my good friend Alison for a few days.  It was lovely and we had a fine time walking and talking and of course crafting.  Not a long enough stay but glad for the chance.  Thanks Ali for making me so welcome.  This week I have been preparing for a double class this coming Saturday.  Had to have it all done by today because I'm going on a wee overnight camp tomorrow night with our youngest Granddaughter (10) and then on a bush tramp on Friday.  Sadly the weather has turned cool and a bit wet so I hope it all goes OK.  We will have fun whatever but may just have to sleep in the hall rather than the tents as planned.  Then to cap it all Blogger didn't want to let me post tonight.  I think it was sulking because it is SO long since I did a post.  Anyway I hope you like the cards.l  They are each done with some form of stenciling which is just the latest craze is it not?  I have been having fun trying different techniques in readiness for a class later in the year.  Hope you like the results.  Right I'm off to bed as I don't rexpect there will be a lot of sleeping going on tomorrow night. LOL PS I took pix both with and without the flash.  On the poppy one I have used stencil paste and micro glass beads which pick up the light of the flash very well


  1. I really like that poppy stamp, with or without the flash it looks stunning both ways.

  2. It's not a stamp Ali it's a stencil with glass micro beads added into the stencil paste whilst still wet. I have gone stencil mad since I came home from you.
