A WET WEEK AWAY, THANK GOODNESS FOR CRAFTING!....

Malcolm, Monty & myself are back from a rather wet holiday week away in lovely Northumberland.  Sadly it rained every day and we only saw the sun once - one evening.  That's the joys of holidaying in the UK of course, even in June it can be cold and wet - we were wearing gloves and woolly hats, for goodness sake!  It was also foggy so we saw very little of the beautiful Northumbrian scenery - 'atmospheric' some kind soul called it!

So I'm back with lots of lovely craft images to show you to cheer us up tonight.  Starting with some colourful card makes by Flo...


This one made by repeating CI-411 on a coloured panel for the background, with flowers from CI-206, and the leaves from CI-248 on top.


Here we have our latest seaside stamp CI-454 featured, and below we have the cute little owlets from CI-442 on a lovely inky background.


Then this card below also looks lovely with a triptych of the new borders stamp CI-451 making a great display along with an image from our People & Places book.


And my personal favourite of the makes by Flo is this fabulous Tree Trio from CI-453 on the card - so very pretty in blues and yellows....


The same trees feature on this delicious card by Daniele....


Along with the flowers from Flower Heads 2, and just the right amount of 'bling' added (click on it for a close-up!)


Followed by another tree card, this time using the trees from our A4 plate CI-450.


I am also adoring this colourful card displaying CI-320 so very beautifully.  Thank you Flo and Daniele.

I also have a card to show made with the Tree Trio stamp...


Plus another using CI-404, and a border from CI-451...



...... perfect for a train buff.

Next I have two corking canvasses made by Coco....



So lovely with the couple (and Monty dog) from CI-439!

Sylvie has made some very lovely tags.....




.... where she has used background CI-430, with some MDF circle frames and a butterfly on top.

The Tree Trio appear again on this great folding taglet by Helen.....


And the Flower Heads stamp again looks gorgeous on these beautiful makes by Joanna...





With thanks to Sylvie, Helen and Joanna for their fantastic makes too.

Hope you have enjoyed the show along with me?!

Back soon,
