Good evening and thank you for popping in and having a look.   Also thank you for all your lovely comments.

Going to be a short week for me this week as. I am off to the NEC in Birmingham for a couple of day at the end of the week with Patricia and Kate.    No bag packed or anything organised, but hey ho how long will it take to put a few clothes in a bag.  As long as I have the basic I will be fine.  Don't plan to buy much, and seeing how I was at Poles Apart this morning and spent some pennies, my excuse is I am keeping Adrian in business.   It's a fantastic family run business, when do you get offered a tea or coffee when you go into a big store craft store.

Any way today's card, was a card the Tammy asked me to make late on  Saturday evening she had forgotten it was their friends 25th today.    So sorry I have yes once again used striplet die and the 25th one.   Now when I was doing this design I didn't know that Kathleen's and Iain's bridesmaids were in navy blue dresses.  So it was just by pure luck I had put that coloured flowers on it.

This is an 8x8 card.

Last week I was playing to see if I could fit two striplet dies like I have, they just fit with just the two corners crossing causing an little tiny cut that's not meant so the flowers cover that.  But I do love how it looks.

So I have used Sue Wilson striplet, Sue Wilson, vine leaves, and finishing touches, memory box 25th. 
S.P. Shapeabilities, just rite anniversary stamp. Paper box silver card and flowers from stash.  

Again I apologise for showing another card with striplet die.   

Hopefully my next post won't be a card using the striplet 

Any way that's it for tonight,  off to put my feet up and relax.

  12. Definitely no apologies necessary Hazel. Keep 'em coming. It's great to be able to get so much use from a die. This really does look fabulous! I was a December bride and my bridesmaids wore French navy so this could be for me. Mind you - a few more than 25 years!! See you soon! Hugs Christine xx

    As far as I'm concerned there is absolutely no need what so ever to make an apology for using any of Sue's striplet dies they are fantastic and so is your card very elegant and beautiful.

    With love

  15. Hi Hazel,
    what a very beautiful and stunning creation.
    I love how you have used that striplet die in a very different way too.
    This is what I think we all want to achieve out of our dies plenty of use for the pennies we spend on them.
    Enjoy the NEC at the weekend, wish I could meet up with you all.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
