It's Boys Week! New Digital Stamps for you :)

Hello everyone!

I've been neglecting being in touch with you all due to (are you ready for all the excuses?!) kids being at home from school, feeling a bit manky and then being snowed under with this new book. Plus it's been hard to write a jolly blog post while the news has been full of such awful scenes - our thoughts obviously go out to everyone affected by the riots.

Back to happier things.

We have two lovely new stamps for you. I've been asking around to see what kind of digital stamps people wanted and it was clear that something for the boys was high up on the list. So as I love my football, the first one is a little boy playing footy. You can colour the kit up to match any team you want and create a card for lots of different ages. I took this design from an Arsenal watercolour painting I recently sold in the shop...

Secondly I thought were all in need of a little superhero. Every time I log onto my online bank account I see a photo of a little boy dressed as a super hero which gave me the inspiration - oh and I love, love, LOVE the cards the Design Team made with this one!!

Hope you like the digital stamps, ideas for new ones are always very welcome - just add a comment below or email me at

Make sure you have a look at the challenge blog as Jennifer has set another brilliant craft challenge that we hope lots of you will fancy joining in with - you just might win a prize!

The new book is coming along, I've just broken off from painting one of the illustrations to write this blog, but as always deadlines are tight so having to work hard at the moment. I can't show you the pictures yet but I might give you some sneak peeks soon :)

I have some news coming up in the next few days of some rather special stamps you might be interested in so pop back and find out how you can help out a very good cause and get yourself some exclusive stamps too.

Take care everyone - keep finding time to craft!

A New Painting For You!

A nice new painting for you in the Jellypark Store, this sweet pair of bunnies are going off on an adventure in their hot air balloon!

Here is some detail - a little bug watching them pass overhead...

I treated myself to a new set of watercolours as they were on a special offer and I needed a lot of new pans and it was cheaper buying them this way. I have a nice new book to illustrate from a UK company so I thought I would do a few watercolours with the new set to get my hand in...
