Gathering Dust

My craft stash has been gathering dust of late.  I have been so caught up in decorating bathrooms (wish me luck on the tile paint as that Avocado tiled wall really have to go) and going to post 16 education meetings that by the time I flop onto the sofa I really haven't had the urge to craft.  But I have been inspired by lots of felty offerings and Christmas makes on various blogs recently that I hopefully will make 'something' christmassy with felt this weekend.  Or maybe I might have to watch the paint dry......

Anyhow as the crafty offerings are not forthcoming on this blog recently I thought I would show a couple more cards that I made for the Breast Cancer Coffee Morning.  I am glad to say that a tidy sum of £45 was donated by staff at the school I work at for tea,cake and cards.

I am still loving the promarkers but found some LOLV angel stamps that I had stamped last year but not coloured or used and because I had used Stazon ink for these coloured them with coloured pencils and glitter Sakura pens. 

I used more traditional colours for the bear LOTV stamp and the swinging girl Penny Black stamp.  Both were coloured using Promarkers and a good measure of stickles were added.

Right, going off to try something creative with felt.....


  1. what lovely cards and lovely colouring thanks for sharing them


  2. Beautiful cards. well done on the fundraiser

  3. Good luck with that tile paint! I painted over pink tiles with white a few years ago and it really did work. I hope you found time to do something creative with felt too :)

  4. Hope the tile paint worked out well. But it looks like while waiting for the paint to dry, you certainly used your time well.
