Hello there. I’ve been a very sporadic blogger over the last few weeks thanks to several trips away (including a fabulous couple of days at Claritystamp’s crafting retreat – more of that another time) but I managed to find a bit of time this afternoon to make a few cards.

Hello crafty friends. Well I’m back after a fab few days away with friends at the New Wine Christian conference – we weren’t anywhere near the sea, so I thought I’d compensate with this card inspired by the theme at AAA Cards which also picks up the left hand diagonal of yellow, blue & water… Read More in the sea
Hello there. Well it’s been another scorching day here in the South East of England – the hottest ever recorded! I thought I’d make another Christmas card, in the hope that if I’m thinking about cooler days I’ll stop noticing the heat… (it didn’t work!)
