It's almost weekend and according to our local forecast it looks like being a pleasant one weather wise which is good for me because we are having a family weekend and hope to have a trip out somewhere on Sunday.
Over on the Chocolate Baroque blog you will find Glenda has just launched a lovely new set of stamps called Home Sweet Home. These are really lovely (as are all the CB stamps, lol) and are very much in the quite distinctive style of Clarice Cliff. There are some really useful stamps on this A5 set too and my favourite is one of grasses silhoutted against a sun/moon. Glenda is doing a giveaway of one set of stamps and the winner will be taken at random from the commentors on the Chocolate Baroque DT blog, Glenda's own blog and any DT member's blog posts using this set of stamps which will be published over the next few days. All the details are on the DT blog here. I've already done a post over there with an acetate card I made for the DT and now I'm going to share a different project on here.
In my cross stitching days, a friend of mine did a set of round cross stitched wall hangings all done in the Clarice Cliff style using blocks of bold colour and when I saw these stamps that's what sprang into my mind immediately. I remembered I had bought a set of coasters which were meant to have cross stitched pieces of work inserted into them. They had been stuck in the cupboard for at least 12 years, ahem! so I got them out and made inserts using the lovely house stamps. I decided to create one for each of the seasons and drew in some extra hills in the rather childlike fashion that mimmicked my friend's cross stitched pieces.
Don't forget to visit the DT blog and all my teamies (the link is in my sidebar) and leave a little comment. Wish I could invite you all for coffee to christen the coasters but I've passed them on to Glenda, lol!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
