Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #123 ~ Picture Inspiration

Hello Creative friends, 

It's time for a new Paperbabe Stamps Challenge, 
use the picture below to inspire you and come 
share your creativity with us over HERE..



Inspired by those fruity colours above I blended paint 

Paint and MDF always takes me to my happy place.. 


Designed to capture and frame the Dinky 3/4 view Female stamps 
I stamped and coloured one of the designs, dry brushing colour 
onto the word Dream* one of six included with the frame set.


Flowers from the Blossom stamp set are stamped onto painted card, 
cut out and arranged around the MDF overlay completing the design.


Ready to display on its stand or hang on the wall 
and just dream of warm sunny days ahead.. 

Come share your take on the challenge over on the 
Paperbabe Stamps Blog for the chance to win a 
Paperbabe stamps prize of your choice.

Look forward to seeing what your 
creative side designs.. 

Stay safe everyone

Two tags for Tuesday and a Wednesday workdesk..

Hello everyone 

*Two blog posts for the price of one today* 

Whilst #SuperSaturday happened and more lockdown restrictions 
were lifted I spent the weekend in the safety of my Crafty space 
having a tidy up then a play with paint and left over scraps. 

The first a hand painted Peacock Feather and the second 
created using leftover from previous projects. 

I didn't realise until I uploaded the photo those words 
seem to have created their own sentence... 


So what's on my Wednesday workdesk for WOYWW #579 


as if I haven't got enough UFO's I've started something new ... 
this ones a work in progress, WIP's are not as bad as UFO right?? 

Look forward to seeing what's on your workdesks 
over @ Julia's Stamping ground and beyond..

And that was June.. WOYWW 578

Hello everyone, 
"How are you all..??"

I'm not sure how July got here so fast but I do know I was a 
blogging failure last month as lockdown restrictions lifted 
It was vital I spent time with those that needed me. 

June 2020..

Local walks with my Daughter made up for numerous cancelled 
flight's as she prepared for her return to Sweden after being 
caught up in our UK lockdown for the past 3 months... 

After finishing her two weeks quarantine I'm pleased she's 
well educated on social distancing, hand washing etc etc.. 
but it will be a long time before we see each other again 😢


Freya finding a shady patch during those extremely hot days 
waiting desperately for her groom room appointment !!


now she's had her fur clipped she's much more relaxed.. Unlike my 
Mother in Law who's counting down the days to her hair appointment..


Now allowed to spend time with my Mom and have a cuppa together 
is amazing, it's been a very lonely road for those on their own.. 
I hope you've been able to spend some time with family or friends? 

Here's some makes I couldn't share any earlier.. 
made for my dear friend Dorthe's Birthday. 
I know she's now received them 😘 
Hope you had a lovely day Dorthe, enjoy your family time xx



Hmmm nothing but my scrap journal I use to stamp or just doodle.. 
but there's quite a bit finished to blog about later in the month.
Let's hope July is a little more kinder 😌


Look forward to seeing woyww 
and catching up with you all.. 

Take care everyone
