I've been having a little play with some of the lovely stencils in my Giogiocraft advent calendar. First up is the little maneki-necko, beckoning cat, in the hope that 2021 brings us better fortune.

Difficult to get a decent photograph at this time of the year when there is so little daylight.

Thank you for stopping by. Hope the week brings you happiness and good fortune xxx

Start the year with a splash


Happy New Year! 

I have started the year off with a cheerful, fun card, using a Giogiocraft stencil, Cosmic Shimmer pixie powders and Inktense pencils.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by. I hope that 2021 brings you many blessings and an abundance of creative inspiration xxx

Christmas catch up


If you have been celebrating this week I do hope all went well. Where we are, we had to forgo family festivities and resort to one family bubble driving by another's home and not getting out of the car, just a wave through the windows. All quite surreal. Leaving two of us with turkey for fourteen!

Here's the last of the polar bears, for this year anyway. This time using a gel monoprint background and laser cut polar bears.

I also added a few tweaks to my Monet's The Magpie from the brilliant Something Less Boring workshop.

I really enjoyed painting this scene and now I'm eagerly anticipating snow so that I can take my own reference photos.

Right, off now to do some crafting and maximise the holiday time I have left.

Keep safe and well and have a good day xx

Polar bear


He's back! My favourite stencil at the moment the Giogiocraft polar bear on the gelli plate, with the mask and the stencil.


Hope you are keeping well as we limp through the last few weeks of the year hopeful that next year will be so much better. Thank you for taking the time to stop by xxx

Jingle all the way


Just a quickie today sharing this cheeky chap using the Sizzix die and some magazine stamps. He does looks as if he is in the festive spirit.

Hope he brings a bit of a smile. Take care, have a good day xx

A very beary Christmas

Hi there

Today I'm sharing some Christmas cards made with the lovely Giogiocraft polar bear stencil. This is probably my all time favourite as it was my special request to have a bear stencil. 

It comes with the mask and stencil so you can play around with colours on the gel plate. 


Great with a bit of added sparkle.

Thank you for stopping by. Take care, keep well and safe xx
