Hectic................

Life is hectic in this household at the moment. With eldest revising for her AS levels and the youngest revising for GCSE's the stress levels are immense - as you can imagine.... still only another month!! lolxx Good job I've my craft to emerge into.....

Told you that there was another birthday and here's Clare's card




















..... I adore Tim Holtz stamps and just had to have this chandelier, the card has been very heavily influenced by the white and black seen in blogland. There is something very elegant, clean and crisp about white and black isn't there?

I've also completed another set of inchies........ this one is for the swap on Zuzu's forum and the theme was "People and Wings". I decided to create some backgrounds with my new watercolour pencils and make them light and bright this time.......



















My thoughts are with all you fellow crafters out there with teens taking exams.....lolxx...............tflxx

I love your black and white one, so crisp and simple and the glittery wings on your inchies are fab!

You have my sympathies with all the exams!

Love that TH stamp, it's beautiful! Also love the beading on your April Showers piece in the alst post. You're so clever xxx

Agree, the black/white does seem to predominate in blogland atm and it's so classy - as demonstrated by this card here.

Love the effect of those backgrounds - strange, I've not thought of using my pencils - but will now, thanks for the inspiration.
