I seem to be making a habit of posting for the Fashionable Stamping Challenges with only minutes to spare! the truth is I was making a giant tag which just didn't quite work so I had a quick re-think and ended up with this instead. I've got a couple of spare flowers left over so I'll probably make another couple of tags. I cut the flower layers and leaves on my Pazzles Inspiration machine and coloured them with Dylusions Sprays. The tag has been stamped with white paint dabber and coloured with crushed olive Distress Ink. I've added my favourite bee stamp and few embellishments to complete the look.

There is also a fortnightly prize sponsored by Cottage Crafts so you need to get in it to win it ! x
Ever since I can remember, I have enjoyed dabbling with a variety of crafts. My earliest crafting memories are of spending hours doing 'corking' or 'french Knitting' at my grandmother's house, using a wooden cotton reel with four short nails tapped into it and endless tangles of coloured wool. I also have fond memories of those little knitting kits, that came in a container that was made of the same material as an egg box. Happy days!
My interests now, range from textiles to ceramics, with knitting,felting, sewing and card making in between. I've reached a stage where I feel I know a little about a lot of different crafts. I'm still striving to become a master of at least one!
My favourite craft adventures at the moment, include digital collaging using PSP Elements, rubber stamp making with my imagpac kit and getting to know my Craft Robo.
When not crafting or looking after my family, I work part-time as a teacher, supporting visually impaired children.I also teach ceramics in a primary school and do occasional art residencies in mainly primary and special schools. Phew! I didn't realise I was that busy.
