Hello all you lovely crafters, I had a lovely day at the SECC last Friday spending my pennies on crafting goodies. I was very good as no machinery or gadgets purchased. I fell in love with some Lili of the Valley stamps so I had to buy some, a bit like shoes a crafter can never have too many stamps. I stopped for a chat with the lovely Barbara Gray from Clarity Stamps and bought some gilding flakes, a few stamps and some Adirondack ink pads. I also bought some bits and pieces for jewellery making, all in all a very successful day.
Here is a card I made for my father in law's birthday using one of the Lili of the Valley stamps. I used green background paper, and two strips of stripey paper which matched the colours I had used to colour my image. I then decorated with some eyelets on the left hand side and  I wrote a little tag 'Resting my Eyes' that is my delightful father in law's war cry he is never napping he is always 'resting my eyes'.


  1. This is a favorite image of mine and you have colored it to perfection! Thank you for joining us at ABC's Challenge. Good luck and I hope we see more of your lovely work in our next challenge!

  2. Hiya, sounds like you had a good old crafty spend! This is gorgeous, love that sentiment, my Dad used to say that too!
