Good Morning! :-)
It's turned very chilly again now, bitter in fact and threat of snow again here in Kent.
I'm compiling this post at 07.30 while adapting to a completely new routine in our household.
It's a bit of an essay but please "bare with" while I update recent events.
Our new arrival Frasier, has been with us now for a week.
He's an 18 week old pedigree Beagle pup with a lot to explore and learn.
He's settled in well, it's a learning curve for us all, as Lupin was 3 when we re-homed her, we are getting into a routine and making good progress daily.
So I am snatching my crafty moments as and when until he settles and we've established those all important boundaries.
The weekend was hectic as I was also visiting mum in hospital as she recovers from her broken hip.
The weekend's highlight though was the fabulous Clarity Stamp TV shows! So much to cram into a few hours and such lovely new stamp sets and demo's from the ever wonderful and inspiring Barbara Gray.
Apart from having my samples shown on the TV shows, along with those of other very talented DT members, there was some very exciting news!
The launch of the Clarity Stamp challenge blog, the Design Team members for the blog are a fellow group of crafty friends who between them have an array of crafting talent. They have been bought together for this team and will bring some of the most exquisite and quality craft makes to inspire all Clarity fans. The challenges are open to everyone and its going to be great fun for both new and experienced crafters to share so why not pop over and join in the first challenge which starts on March 1st, here is the link -
I was very honoured to be asked to join the DT for this challenge blog, so all in all lots of exciting things happening!!!
So I will leave you for now and share this sample of mine with you that I know Barbara had a chuckle about when she saw so much shrink plastic on one card.
I made it using the new Quirky Trees and Cottages sets plus the bench and tree from the Wrought Iron sets and a Clarity Butterfly, it certainly seemed to create interest.
Thanks so much for popping by, hope you're having a good week so far xKx
