Serene Silhouettes

Good Afternoon all

From a sometimes sunny afternoon in the UK.  The weather is improving, spring has sprung and the birds are nesting.  We have a little lady black bird nesting in one of our lilac trees, she has 3 eggs that I can see but there could be a 4th.  I managed to sneak in just one quick pic of the nest when she went to stretch her legs as I don't want to scare her and get too close as she's right outside our conservatory window. It is a real treat to have her there.  I personally think she's a little silly choosing to nest in our garden with our crazy Jack Russell dog but perhaps she's not that crazy thinking that nothing else will come into the garden because of him!??

Picture through the conservatory window (not wanting to get too close)

On to this last weeks class, we used the lovely Serene Silhouettes stamp set, this set has so much promise to it and I decided to start off with a Rich Razzleberry card and gift box set.  There was a LOT of masking involved for the box but as always, there are options and not everyone chose to do as much masking as me - that's the beauty of coming to class as you gain the confidence to do things your own way after a bit of time.

Take a peak and let me know what you think.

Stamp set's used: Serene Silhouette, Curly Cute & Papillion Potpouri
Punches used: 1 3/4" circle & Bitty Butterfly

Clockworks & Create a Cupcake

Hello All

Well, it's been a busy few weeks here.  I've been re-doing my craft room (pictures to follow at some point) so that I could once again see everything and work in a less cluttered environment - far better for the soul and the mind I think as I don't have to keep thinking "where is this or that, I saw it a minute ago"!!

This week is time for another class on Saturday so I thought that I'd better get around to posting the pictures of the last class we did.  We used the clockworks stamp set and mixed it up with some other retired bits and a few things from my crafting stash, see what happens when I can find everything again.  We also used the lovely little create a cupcake set which is just adorable and made such a pretty little easel card.

Hello Bloggers

Hope you're all well and have been having a fantastic Easter break with family and friends!  For us here in the UK, we've also had our clock's change this weekend, we have gone forward an hour as British Summer Time has begun!  So they say anyway but with snow on the ground and very cold winds - I'm not sure I believe it.

I decided that I'd use the lovely little clockworks set just because it seemed right with our change of time.  There are no actual clocks on my card but rather some cogs from my crafting stash along with the very beautifull background stamps from this gorgeous little set.

Take a look and let me know what you think.
