I'm a Christian, married to my wonderful husband, Adrian, since 1978 (where has the time gone?). We have two children, Michael and Elizabeth who are just the best children we could have wished for, we're so blessed, and proud of them. Michael and Aisling,our daughter in law, have a daughter Bronwyne Ann. Elizabeth is married to Martyn. I use my crafting to raise funds for various charities. The charity that I'm currently sponsoring is Save The Children

The challenge at As You Like It is to use your favourite rubber stamp and tell why it is your favourite. I have chosen an acrylic stamp from Little Claire called Blissful. It's a beautifully simple image which lends itself to colouring in different mediums and her dress paper pieces so well. I have used it for many occasions: birthday, get well, congratulations, thinking of you, thank you and RAKs
The challenge at Outlawz Sunday CAS is to use your favourite colour so I had to team it up with my favourite stamp!
I just love this stamp from Little Claire. I've coloured it with ProMarkers and Tim Holtz DI ink pad to shade around the image die cut and the edges of the scalloped rectangles. I used Spellbinder's rectangle Nestabilities dies for these and the sentiment panels. The scalloped vertical border was made using Spellbinder's Classic border die, cut on both sides with a strip of paper from Emma's Garden by Jennifer Ellory down the centre. Both strips were edged using the same ink pad as before. The sentiment is from Sweet Stamps and was stamped with Memento black ink pad as was the Blissful image. Both toppers were attached to the card using 3D foam pads
