For Paula!

My lovely friend Paula has had a bit of a sort out and gave me lots of stash, some of it is going to Nursery, some to Craft Club and some to a friends daughter who is into crafting - but a little bit I've saved for myself!
I fell in love with some Sugar Nellie stamps and thought I'd make a "cute" card - totally different to my normal crafting, but loved it!
Thank you Paula for opening another avenue to me and will see you soon.

Quintile Swap

It seems ages since I blogged.

Last week I went in for a small op which has had a major impact on my crafting!
I had my right wrist operated on for Carpal Tunnel, very quick op under local anaesthetic, but quite sore afterwards. Most of my crafting has had to be done with my left hand as not able to grip acrylic block, etc. Never mind stitches out tomorrow and maybe I can even start ironing again a few months!

The theme for our March Quintile Swap on the Chocolate Baroque group is Springtime.

For my tiles I used the new stamps from Chocolate Baroque - Spring is in the Air and Spring Foliage.
The sentiments are from Breath of Spring set.

Coloured with Distress Markers and Distress Ink.
Coloured the Snowdrops with Sakura clear glaze to protect from ink. Added some WOW glitter to the catkins on the crocus tile.

Hopefully I will feel better tomorrow when the dressings are removed!
