Welcome to my new followers, thank you for joining me on my crafty journey.
Yesterday I went to the Papercraft Extravaganza show in Harrogate with my dear friend Anne and we had the best day out you can imagine. We spent a few hours of retail therepy at the stalls at the show, stopping every now and again to check on Annes DH who was spending the day patiently reading whatever was to hand whilst drinking tea and coffee, and giving him chance to stretch his legs whilst we saved his seat. From the show we all relaxed for a while whilst we enjoyed lunch, and then it was a visit to Dyan Reaveleys Art from the Heart were we failed to resist buying morecrafty bits we HAD to have . We came back suitably skint and loaded down with bags of goodies. Here are some of my purchases from the trip.

On my desk 2 weeks ago, I was busy using my Mr Owl (Its a Hoot) Stamp and here he is in all his glory. I stamped around the edges of craft card, then I paperpieced him on to the quilted background featured in this months Craft Stamper. I put an eyelet in each corner, and threaded garden twine through to make it a little rustic. A little hand drawn frame and he was done. I also made this cog and clock card for a friends 60th birthday. A took a piece of black card, sewed around the edge, stamped the cogs on the with versamark heat embossed with gold and silver. I used metal tape torn and scratched to add interest and attached over the four corners and in the centre. Next I used more metal tape over cardstock dry embossed it and coloured it with gold and silver and bronze alchohol inks. I cut around the cogs to make the shape uneven and stuck it over the silver areas. Extra cogs were added on the top made from diecut grunge paper and the card was completed with a die cut craftables clock from gold mirror card. The black centre of the clock is from the same die cut from black card. I attached the hands with a simple brad at six o'clock for the 60 birthday.
