I'm so glad that you blog readers understand my autumn/conker fascination. I'm not sure whether it was the windy weather on Sunday (it's a well known school fact that the kids go wild on windy play times...seriously it's true), my love of all things autumny or that I felt excited about all my crafty stash I had just bought but I definitely felt a little over excited that day.
Anyway on my return home (and after arranging my conker collection) I felt inspired to make a card from a new LOTV stamp. Plus the fact it was a colleges birthday on Monday. I love these cute baking mice, not sure I would want the little critters scurrying around my cupboards but even so baking mice are kinda cute. I had fun with my Promarkers, inked a doily and glittered the edges with stardust stickles. Got to love a bit of sparkles. I like to glitter the icing sugar, the edges and well anything not moving really.
I was hoping to have more of a play with my stamps this week but unfortunately it is a busy one, what with my sons open evening at college tonight (never thought I would be going to view his artwork as he showed absolutely no interest in art or crafting as a younger child) Also I am trying to get the house\laundry all in order before I go away on a residential trip to Devon with the year sixes. Yes it is that time of year again where I will be praying it's not too cold as we don wetsuits for surfing and kayaking.
