Doing some .... and we were there

Hello to all my wonderful crafty pals. Was gone way longer than I expected but now saying Thank You for all your great comments. 
I was totally exhausted when we got home but we had a fantastic time. The wellies did get muddy but only for one day, lol. 
I have been sooo close to thinking I must buy a set of cards for December but as I have so many stamps and dies for that occasion I have decided to do some simple cards using my 7 x 5 hammered card blanks which have been in my stash for ages. Hopefully you will all bear with my attempts. This is a large stamp but love the design.
I will wander about in blogland and hopefully comment in between taking advantage of our fantastic weather. 
Image - Stampendous Jumbo Vintage Santa,
Paper  and card - card blank is a 7x5 card 
 red layer card from the Papermill, 
no dies . 

I thought I would also pop a quick photo of this scene at Glastonbury, it was a bit impressive. 


  1. How wonderful that you were at Glastonbury, Flora! I am so envious!! I've always wanted to go there.
    Your Christmas card is fabulous! xx

  2. Love the card!! you coloured santa in so nicely!!


  3. Flora I am so glad you only need your wellies the one day, also that you had a fab time. Your Santa card is great, I just love the image.
    Flora thank you for your comment on Andrew at his lesson, he is so into his rock music it's unbelievable, he reals off all his favour bands. We won't mind if he turns out to be a drummer.
