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.

Ladies Pamper Evening

The school I work at is holding a Ladies Pamper Evening on the 2nd May to raise funds for a local hospital teenage cancer unit so they can create a chill out room and I've been asked to stand with my cards, so my weekend has been spent making lots of cards. Here are just a few of them, these are what I'd call my basic card stock and will all sell at £1.50. They are all simple matting and layering with a few ribbons and bows and flowers added.

Prima Ballerina - Strawberries and clotted cream inspired colours - I do love the lacey edges


Birthday Cake- Spring colours and lacey edges again with with some added ribbon.


Spring Wedding - I just love the ribbon and had to add a couple of mulberry flowers the same as her bouquet.

Gone Fishing! - Actually want to find a nice brown button to finish this off!!

Quite enjoyed doing these and there were quite a few more - but I do like my colouring, so this week I'll be making more cards but with coloured images.

Thanks for dropping by

Love n Light
