Crafty Play Day

Hello Everyone!

This week I've been catching up with friends. Yesterday, was spent at a local National Trust garden with my best pal, her son, and little King Charles spaniel. We went for a lovely walk, had lunch in the tearoom, and admired the beautiful flowers in the gardens. The sun was shining and we had a lovely time.

On Tuesday, my friend Hazel came for lunch and crafty play. I cooked a yummy spicy sweet potato and bean stew, from a recipe on Tesco's website. And I also spent the day making bright masterboards, using Dylusion's paint and PaperArtsy stamps.

I needed a card for a friend who was having some surgery yesterday, so I used one of the backgrounds and PaperArtsy Lin Brown stamps to make this...

I'm hoping to get some art journaling in before the weekend, so watch this space.

Hope you're all having an artful day,
