Good evening everyone.

Firsty I must apologise for my limited blogging and commenting this week. I have had a lovely week with my Mum visiting from France and, of course, I wanted to spend as much of my time as possible with her. She left for home this morning and I then spent most of the day at the Artisan Bead and Staming show at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre. I will try and catch up with your blogs over the next couple of days.

Here is another card I have made for Cuddly Buddly

and this is what I used to make it:-

Stamp: Poppies Roundel (Cuddly Buddly)
Colouring Medium: Copic Ciaos
Tools: Scoring Board, Circle nestabilities (small and large), corner punch rounder, Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" embossing folder
Cardstock: Die Cuts with a View
Accessories: Ivory pearls coloured with a Copic Ciao, White Inksentials pen, Sakura clear glaze pen

Thank you for visiting my blog today and for any comment you may leave.

I hope you have enjoyed your weekend.

Clare xx

Hi clare,Glad you had some quality time with your Mom,thank's for the lovely comment's you give me,I meant to say you should try the" out of frame" with some copier paper and a stamped image to get used to it, it's easier than you would think.
I can't leave a comment about your card at the moment as it's not showing, I get this problem now and then on all my blog's I visit, it will appear in time , I am sure it's lovely though....
Glad your back.

I'd love to be able to do the colouring with Copics like yours. One day maybe...
Good to meet you too. We were just sorry the show hadn't been better supported as it would have been nice to have this as a regular event.

Jo beat me to it Claire. I too wanted to say your Copic colouring is excellent. I love the colours you have chosen for this card too.

It was lovely to meet and chat with you at the Artisan show today. It was perfect for we shoppers being so quiet but such a shame for the people hiring the stands for the weekend.

I've spent a lovely time browsing back through your blog. You have some beautiful cards shown here.
