About Me

Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom
My name is Clare I live in Nottinghamshire and work in education supporting students as my full time job but like to make cards, craft and plan as a hobby. I have recently taken up arigurumi crochet, the perfect autumn/winter hobby. I have also decided after a number of years off to pick up my guitar and learn to play again so due to metal strings and crochet hooks the ends of my fingers are slowly toughening up.

Ice Cream & Pickles

I bought this image from Krista at Saturated Canary just because I liked it. I had a play with the colour Spectrum Noir pens I had at the time which I'd purchased from JGD Crafts, Sutton-in-Ashfield and this is what I came up with. I've actually done her in three different colors but can't put the other two on yet as they were commssions and will be given next week.

I have quite a simple style. Although I love embellished cards I don't yet have the confidence to create them..This one was matt and layered with a fab baby paper from Dovecraft designed by Daniella de Grood and some lilac card I had in stock. I used Spellbinder Nestabilities Labels 29 to cut out and matt and layer the image and sentiment.  Hope you like her too x 

 I would just like to say a quick "Thank You" to Janet at Pink Gem Designs too for my lovely watermark, I finally figured out how to add it.... :-)

Love n Light



  1. Hi Claire, I see you've found SC images - very addictive aren't they!! I have loads, but not many coloured up as yet, they intimidate me a bit - all that hair!!!

    You've done lovely work with yours though, such pretty colours you've used and that paper is adorable!

    I admire the heavily embellished cards as well, but don't always feel that I get them right when I try them. Tend to end up back at fairly simple ones.

    Hope you are looking forward to a lovely weekend,

  2. Yes Sarah, they most definitely are... I like Kenny K too and have a few images ready to have a go at this weekend. Troublemaker is my favourite one I think of his.

    Hope you have a lovely weekend too.

  3. Very sweet, I love the name
