Oh Flower of Scotland …..

When will we see your like again…..

Opps sorry getting carried away there! Rugby season you see and Rory “Singing”!  in his own way …..someone needs to buy the boy a bucket to carry the tune in !


The Highland Cattle set has the most beautiful thistle in ….I know they are meant to be classed as a weed but I like them, odd I know but they bring back childhood memories of the council flats in London where I was born and bread  the concrete playground was always covered in Thistles Rosebay Willowherb and Cow Parsley. Oh and Pink Bindweed not the white ! …. The Circles are a stencil with ink brushed through and the Thistle have been stamped in versafine ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder, this lets me colour with Pro-Markers without the ink bleeding  ……Did the same on a bit of pink card and added a lilac ribbon really easy card to do I hope you like it xxxxx

About Bernie Simmons

Hi Everyone. I am Bernie Simmons Proud member of the Hobby Art Design Team, I have been crafting for many years but started scrapbooking when I had my boys, James is now nearly 23 and Rory 19. It was while working out at Rory's school on day I was tacked to clean out an art cupboard...out fell stamps inks and brushes.....I was hooked. Love to craft and alter anything and I'm never happier then when I am either out with my two boy's walking our five Rhodesian Ridgeback dogs or covered in ink! I hope you like my makes and what I do.
