BEAUTIFUL BAMBURGH AND BEAUTIFUL MAKES....

As mentioned in my last email Malcolm, Monty dog, and myself had a few days in Bamburgh in Northumberland just before Christmas, and it was delightful.  The weather was perfect and it was lovely on the beach.  We also managed to visit four great galleries, so it suited us both very nicely.  We stayed in Bamburgh village which looked very beautiful with all the trees decked in lights for the festive season, and Malcolm took this cool photo of the lit up castle at night, as seen from the front of our hotel, with the full moon above..


We hope you all had a restful, or maybe merry Christmas, and we wish you lots of happy times and good health in 2019.  Thanks for all the good wishes you sent us on my last post and over the Christmas period.  Lets also hope 2019 is a very creative year for all of us, as stamping and crafting generally is a perfect way to relax, spend some absorbing 'me time' and create beautiful things to share.

As always I now have some beautiful things to share with you made by our very creative team.  I adore this lovely make by Dora, with it's delicate white embossing, pretty CI papers and stencilling using a CI mask.  The stamp involved here is CI-389, Tea at Three..


My next two beauties are by Flo - sooo pretty! They feature CI-302, and CI-386 ..



In a similar colour scheme I have this gorgeous make by Sandra, using the two mallards from CI-297 on a delightful background created with help from CI-430....


....as well as this very nice card/gift with the 'Tea at Three' stamp again...



My final makes for this post are by teamie Sylvie.  Here we have a lovely make with the 'Summertime' stamp again....


.... as well as an adorable Christmassy tag using the new tag stamps on CI-503.


Which one is your favourite?

Bye for now,
Back soon,

Wow! What stunning designs! I love them all. Thanks for the inspiration! Glad you had a lovely time in Bamburgh. I love that area - so much to see with castles, islands, gardens and birds. I have only ever been in the summer though. Hope you had a great Christmas and that 2019 is a great year for you, Malcolm and Monty

So pleased to read that you enjoyed your time in Bamburgh Jean, it’s also one of our favourite places as it’s totally unspoiled. I love the beach walk from Seahouses to Bamburgh. The samples on here by my very talented teamies are fabulous and I love Malcolm’s photo too. Wishing you both a Happy and healthy 2019. Crafty hugs, Sandra x x
