Time flies!

Hi crafty friends!
Wow! but time really does fly when you've got your head down and your hands are super busy creating lots of projects ! Considering we are all still in lockdown, there's no reason to do much of anything else really!
Saying that though, this week I've finally caved in and jumped onto the baking bandwagon and I've made a few tasty cakes (lemon cupcakes and mini Victoria sponges!) I know! Super Eeeeek as I've not done any baking for years. It all must've gone down well enough tho because there was nothing left over! I've also baked rhubarb tarts and savoury tartlets too. Go me!!!
Here are my savoury tarts , before and after!

Jeez, I'm hungry now!

Anyhoo, getting away from my greediness for now I have a couple of cards to share with you which I made for Crafters Companions QVC show in Germany the other day! I used these gorgeous sentiment stamps and  even though they're in German, they are amusing and fun and, if you want a translation pop a request in the comments below and I'll get back to you. 

Hope your weekend will be as sunny as mine and I'll be back soon with some more goodies.

NHS Heroes

Hi everyone.
I hope your week has gone well and you're staying as safe as possible during these uncertain times.
I've got to admit it, I'm TOTALLY fed up of this lockdown now! I can't wait for everything to be normal again. But, isn't this all becoming our new normal though?  Keeping a distance from other people? Queuing to go into a store and avoiding people when in there? Face masks and quieter roads? Seeing people actually going out for walks as opposed to doing it grudgingly? I really think that the majority of us have become so used to this new way of doing things that it's going to be harder going back to our old ways!
I guess only time will tell.
Anyhow, away from my rambling and back to the NHS Heroes, for whom we all clap on a Thursday night - this includes the carers and key workers too.  The point of my post is to showcase some fantastic stamps, by Crafters Companion which are available to purchase on 18th May from the website HERE.
A portion of each sale will go to the World Health Organisation in order to help fund the research to find a vaccine for Covid-19.

This is my image, coloured with my Spectrum Noir markers and now on display in my window.

I hope you like it and maybe it will inspire you to pop over to the Crafters Companion site to purchase your own. 
If you do, just tell them Lesley sent you! 😄😄😄

Crafters Companion DT

Hi everyone
I was so pleased to be chosen recently for the Design Team at Crafter's Companion  and  to work alongside some amazing crafters!
CC is an international company and very active in the crafty community as they're always on trend with their products and constantly moving forward with design and style so it's going to be a really fun year keeping up with it all!!
Unfortunately,  we've all been affected by COVID-19, and this has even had an impact on the crafting community! I know! Fancy that!
As soon as the products we need are made available I'm sure I'll be sharing lots of makes with you all.

For now though, I'm following Sara Davies and Joe Remblance on Crafters TV as much as possible with their awesome projects and products for sale and I hope you will too just by following this link HERE!

Have a great week 😊
