Variation on a theme .........

cards by Clare Chervil  Paperartsy lin brown JOFY









Helllllooooooo my crafty friends and a very happy Tuesday to you.  For the first time ever I've booked my self a table at a local craft fair and have been busy creating some altered art and cards.  I went for a simple clean design for todays makes and used different colours to vary the theme. Made from a mix of Lin Brown and JOFY stamps, copic ciao pens, a mask and distress ink they have a simple fresh feel to them.  Hope you like :-)

Happy Friday everyone
If your a follower of mine you 'll know that I've been off work for a while following an op, but my life as a lady of leisure came to an end this week when I returned to the world of totally british beautiful fast fast cars and ones that go anywhere!!  I had a wonderful welcome back from my colleagues so thanks to everyone for making my first day as good as it was.  I thought I'd feel like the new girl, not able to remember anything, but just like riding a bike it all came flooding back :-) Now I feel like I've not been away lol!!!

That way you can always see the beautiful papers you've chosen to decorate your pages in, like  like the Mad Hatter below.  I added black clips into the samples too to hold more pics and ephemera on the pages.   and right in the centre there's an acetate waterfall section that h…
