Cake, coffee & art (part 2)

If you missed part1, it's here.

So, today was a re-run of the big coffee morning for those who have to work on a Friday (it's as good an excuse as any other). Paul was doing some jewellery making again, there was cake decorating with Leanne from "Bake me, I'm yours" and we should have had a 'make & take' with Sarah Anderson. Unfortunately Sarah wasn't able to make it due to ill-health, so That Woman (aka Suzanne) stepped in with some card making. There were only a few stamps, but in another moment of serendipity one of them was the large Stampotique Bee which matched perfectly with a poem in an old book that I was using as backing paper.
The stamps on the other two cards are a Stampotique girl and Agapanthus from Stampendous.


  1. You are right, the Big Bee is just perfect for this creation. All projects so very different but absolutely stunning! ;)

  2. Wow all 3 are stunning Nigel! Wish I had known about your coffee morning, maybe next time!

    Let me know when there is something going on there next as I would love to join in and get messy!


  3. Nigel, your bee helm piece is awesome! What a wonderful old poem too. I love to read those old poems with their stately language and old-fashioned imagery. "Ventriloqiuos drum", wow!! Thanks for sharing your and the poet's artistry!
