Thanks for popping in. Perfect day for crafting here! Bit of drizzle, bit overcast – as I said, ideal for a pot of tea and a craftalong!
Now a couple of days ago, I posted a finished card…
…and invited you to guess how I made it. The incentive to join in was a £25 Clarity Gift Voucher, and oh boy! Several of you got soooooo close! But only one of you pretty much nailed it:
SUSAN WHITE ! You’re a star !! Gift voucher on its way to you, dear winner!
So many, many thanks to all those of you who joined in, and here is a step by step breakdown – just in case you wanted to know!
I used the beautiful 3-Way overlay Happy Couples Stampset.
As an old stamper (oi! Less of the old!!) I think these 3-way overlay stamps are just brilliant – a total game changer. It’s just like screen printing, but even better! Now you can spot glaze too, as I have done here with the background.
We have quite a collection of the 3-way stampsets now, really smashing ones, so I have just asked our clever Tom to pop in the back of the website, and drop the prices on ALL of them to £19.99 (from £30) – and this particular little design of mine to £14.99. Not that we have lots in stock! In fact, we may have to make them! But hey ho. That’s what we do. Because we can! And because we’re celebrating!
BIG reason to celebrate, I can tell you! We had lunch with Mum and Dad today, to celebrate their 61st wedding anniversary a few days early, (because we’re up in Leyburn at our Clarity Open Day on the actual day). Mum said to me, “Do you know where I was 10 years ago today?” And then I remembered. She was in hospital, recovering from a mastectomy. I will never forget it. I will never forget sitting with my Dad in the waiting room. Do you remember all those hundreds of cards you made for her? And all the hundreds of little slate charm orders you sent in, because I asked you to help me, so she would have a reason to keep going? Well, it worked! As I said. BIG REASON TO CELEBRATE TODAY. HUGE REASON. And gratitude in abundance .
So pop on over to the website and take a look at all the 3-way overlay stamps. They are über cool! CLICK HERE TO INVESTIGATE.
Time to go watch the rugby!
Love and Hugs,
