THANK YOU CARD
Good morning, and thank you for all your kind comments on my peek of what will be the die cuts on Andrew and Gillians invitations. You know if you could loose weight from turning that handle on the machine it would be great, no I will end up having a muscle bigger on my right arm from my left!!! I did ask Charlie if he could think of some how adding a wee motor to the handle? Now if my dad had been alive I know he'd have thought of a way. Any way I will just battle on. Now my striplet cracked but it's only a little crack, but I did try using a file to see if I could make it less sharp, but it's in a place that you can't get into, saying that it's going no where I will still use it. The new die wasn't that expensive if you think of paying that or getting blood on the die cut? I take steroids which as a lot of you will know can effect me being able to stop the my hand/finger bleeding quickly.
Now I was going to show the card I was intending to make for Tammy's godfather who started his radiotherapy, well I just could get it to work. I think it was due to being tired, I had watched the clock every hour the night before. So I ended up being asleep by 9pm last night.
I did make this little Thank You card. Now I am using A3 card for cutting the die cuts from and I use the strips etc for cutting striplets and the leaves and I ended up having a piece left size - 41/2ins x 61/2 ins now I just couldn't let that go unused, so I made it into a little Thank You card, added a couple of die cuts out of the bits that I had left to one side for cutting small dies cuts from, so these will be used to make these.
Gillian and Andrew loved them, and as they say they will need a few so great use of the spare card.
I am off to cut some more bits. I should be doing the ironing, but hey ho that can wait I am not working first thing tomorrow and I do like ironing first thing in the morning. So I will do it then.
Well I hope this weather warning of bad weather won't come to much. It's a very mild day here so I am putting washing out, it might not dry properly but even just a bit will be good.
Take care. ((((((Hugs))))) to those who need them.
