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.

Friday, 1 March 2013


Well folks the weekend has begun (it's Friday evening) and I've just completed my first ever card made using an image by Krista Smith of Saturated Canary (who has some beautiful images) and Spectrum Noir pens (the pastel set only) and some card and paper stock I've had for some time.

I learned about easel cards (amongst other things) last weekend through a class at Gemini Crafts in Sutton-in-Ashfield, Notts which I must say I thoroughly enjoyed and am really pleased with the resulting card I've made today.

I intend to enter this particular card into Divas by Design's Weekly Challenge "Anything Goes" and Totally Gorjuss' challenge Happy and also My Mum's Craft Shop's challenge "Spring Has Sprung"

Thanks for calling by.

Love n Light
