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.

Be so Happy

Made this for a very special Grandma's 80th birthday. Words were more important than images or numbers so here's what I created:

This first image is obviously in the box. Everything on this card apart from the die-cut scrolls came from Dreamees a company run by Hayley Bignall (an ex-student at the school I work in) and her Mum, Carol Bignall. Hayley is a designer of original artwork cd's, stamps and accessories.

I printed papers in pastel green and pastel pink from her Simply Sweet CD for this card. The flowers are made using printed templates and I think look fab!! I decided to cut the flowers leaving a white border (a tip from Hayley) as it really makes the flower pop when it's completed.

 I've taken this photo so you can see the 3D effect of the flowers.

As this card is a wordy one, thought I'd let you see the verse.

I will be entering the card into Totally Gorjuss - Anything Goes with Swirls Challenge
and Pink Gem Designs - Make It Sentimental Challenge
and Divas By Design -Anything Goes Challenge

Thanks for calling by, please let me know what you think of my card either by ticking boxes or leaving a comment.
