Good morning and welcome to my blog, to those who leave me lovely comments Thank You.   For those who pop in but don't leave a comment Thank You also, I know a lot of people don't have blogs, I have been there too and loved looking at what others got up to, so I hope you like what you see here.

Today I am showing some more very simple cards using my striplet dies.    They are very simple and I haven't put sentiments on them, they will go into my box to be used when needed.

As I said very simple , apart from the striplet die.  The memory box die cut and  the backing papers are all out of my bit box.  Ribbon and pearls from stash.   The cards are around 4x7  just bits of  off cuts that I won't bin.

I am enjoying knowing I am not going to work.  Ok I have still do things here at home but I have no rush, where as I am usually trying to fit it in round other things.  

We are just waiting to see what Mr Weather is going to do, before we decide what we will do later.  At the moment it's raining, but bits of blue sky appearing so here's hoping. 

So what ever you are up to enjoy.

  1. Good morning Hazel
    Three beautiful cards so elegant looking, like you I love the striplet dies from Sue Wilson and hate waste these cards fit the bill on both which is wonderful.
    Enjoy your day whatever the weather, rain only goes skin deep believe me I know living here in the Lake District we get lots of the wet stuff!
    Have fun whatever you decide to do, take care.

  2. Hi Hazel
    Seems we've both been "stripletting" today and in this weather too lol!
    These will be super for any occasion as they're elegantly neutral.
    I keep the tiniest of scraps in my "it may come in handy" plastic wallets.
    And yes, the lovely Mr D does have a heart and an incredibly sweet tooth lol!
    Best wishes.

  17. Hi Hazel room for one more ? Im so glad I can pop in now and leave complimentary comments here rather than pop my head in then pop out again without being acknowledge your beautiful work. These striplet dies are stunning and you've made some beautiful cards with them. I work with 8x8 and 7x7 for childrens cards so these smashing little beauties have made me think differently, thank you.
