Well it was a dark damp day here in the Midlands, I must get crafting to cheer me up!  I had a very pleasant day yesterday.  I sat in the conservatory most of the day crafting, and dh was in his armchair reading.  We had some pleasant music on,  and it was so nice to have company.  Usually I am down in my craft room in the basement all alone. 
  I made some stamps  from fun foam using Diana Wakley's new stamps for inspiration.  I am delighted with them.  Here is a page where  I roughly stamped them on and here are the stamps also.  I cut out the silhouettes on Cr Robo using sew pattern font.  Traced them on to the foam and drew some patterns on them heavily with a biro, and then cut them out.  Great fun!

this card i made for my niece's new baby girl.

ribbon & gem.  the little hanger came from local clothes shop.

A simple card but nice I think.  Sentiment is a foam stamp (unknown) inked with distress ink--shabby shutters.  I pricked around the edges with a pricking tool.

This was a wedding anniversary card for my son Eoin.  .After spending 10 years in Sydney he came home & married a lovely English girl and is living in the warmest place in England -Brighton.
