Lily and more!!

A lovely Lily Stamp by Sheena Douglas.
I picked it up, unused, at a Cancer Charity Shop, along
with other stamps, back end of last year.

It just got used for the first time, for this CAS card.

It will be great to stamp the petals twice and 3D them.

Stamped onto Watercolour card and painted with
Distress Inks.
A very simple CAS card and quick to make.

I have spent quite a lot of time doing some 
major jobs in the garden! Including sawing down
some old shrubs I didn't like and I will replace them with 
ones that I like more! 
I did keep 2 Honeysuckle climbers I liked and a climbing Rose.
All growing in the same area, up a wall at the end of the garden.

I now have a bit more sawing to do and then decide what plants 
I want to make the bed with. I have quite a lot of plants in tubs, 
some that will be suitable for the shady area.

Well sitting here, on my computer won't get it done!!

Not a cloud in the sky and already 25 degrees!!
Fortunately, the area I will be working in, is in the 
shade for the morning. It gets full sun in early afternoon,
So better get out there quickly!!

Thank you all for the lovely comments on my last post.
Especially the ones who joined in my paper hoarding!!  

I will get around to your posts this week.

Stay safe!
Keep well!

Thank you for all the lovely messages on my last post.
Very kind of you, to take the time to drop by..

This is another stamp from Pink Ink Designs.

He is so amazing to colour and I used Distress Inks to colour him.
I also added Glossy Accents to his eye, nose and jewels on his crown.

I had a stamp that I bought at All Pally, many years ago.
It is a sentiment, which I put inside, saying:

'Wishing you a day fit for a king!'

Had to do so, didn't I?!!!

Another sunny day again today.
It certainly makes it more bearable to stay safe.

I had a sort out in my Craft Room,
 of all my papers in their storage boxes!!

I have 20 X  12"x12" boxes, 17 X  A4 boxes, 6 X  A6  boxes.
Also 12 X A4 files!!

Also, the 11 X  12" x 12" paper pads, that aren't boxed!!

Dare I say, all the boxes are full too!!

Does that make me a hoarder?!!!Lol!!

Hands up, for you all to tell us how many you have!!Lol!!

I did sort out some papers, that I would not use and have put them
in a bag, for one of the 3  the Nursing Homes I fund raise for.

They have a 24 x 7 hours, Craft Room for the residents to use.

Sadly, this year, they won't get the money they usually have
from the Craft Fayres I do.

I felt better for a bit...….until I had forgotten to include,
the Lily Of The Valley  and Hunkydory books, I have in a drawer!!! 

Oh, and the drawers, one for Vellum, another for Acetate and 
the one for Shrink Plastic!!!!

They are all full too!!

Enough!! No more secrets!!

Better get on, as I still have one A4 box to go through.

I have even had the strength, to half fill a Charity bag,
with all the very small scraps I had kept!!

I know why I kept them!! I thought I could cut a small butterfly
out of the 3cm X 3cm piece!! Sad!!

Hope you are all staying safe and please be careful, if 
you decide you really need to go and visit the big stores,
that open today!!! 

Big hugs,

Pooh Bear Book

Sorry I haven't been around lately but life has
been a bit tough. 
I am now finding it difficult to make things,
when I am not sure if we will do any Craft Fairs
before Christmas.

I have had this fabric for a while now. 
I also have the same images, on a pale blue fabric,
so I made a book for a new baby boy too.

I put some wadding between a piece of card and 
the fabric. Then stretched the fabric and stuck it 
onto the piece of card.  
Then added a some ribbon and a metal butterfly.
Then glued it to the front of the book.

The teddy bear stamp, is one of my all time favourite bears!!
He is quite big and is still on his wooden block!!

I stamped him onto Langton smooth watercolour card.
I painted him with Distress Inks.

Added some Glossy Accents onto his eyes and nose.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. 
I have a few things in draft and will try to post them.

Stay safe and keep well.
Big hugs,
