Spring leaf

Good day,

It has been the most beautiful spring day in Suffolk today which inspired my entry to Less is more which is Leaves using a one layer card.

I used one of my favorite nature stamps, Kelp leaves by Designs by Ryn in mown lawn distress ink and then stamped a magazine freebie for the sentiment. I love the card look at all that white space!

I am also entering this into March customer creation on the Designs by Ryn blog.

Finally I shall leave you with Bury St Edmunds basking in the spring sun!

words and jelly fish


 This is my entry to Less is more, which was a sketch challenge this week. This is my take on it using new toys!
 Visible Image  have wonderful new range of stamps out including this one, love sea creatures, colored with Prisma pencils.

I also made this one this entry to the That's crafty challenge Just Words
It is made using an old stencil of a tree on a dictionary page and covered with black paint then mounted on a stamped, gelato background. I highlighted some of the words and phases that caught my fancy, such as "manly attributes" "pedantic" and "tangerine."

In non craft world my Orchids have started to flower and as they love like beautiful floral aliens I thought I would share them.
