SOME CARDS FOR THE BOX
HAPPY NEW YEAR. Oh I have again been a bad blogger. Trouble is I didn't photo my Christmas cards. The light wasn't good - still isn't plus I was making them getting them written and in to the envelopes as quick as I could be get them off in the post. Gift bags were my other make and I have shown them so much.
Today I am showing two cards made from two new dies I got from Anna and Beth for Christmas.
I was very luck as I got four Sue Wilson ones all together. I also got gift vouchers for my favourite craft shop in Cupar.
My cards are made out of parts of A3 card left from making Christmas cards, the back ground card is from Works 12x12 pad ( great value at £4). I cut out the Heraidic Square die from again left over card. The same with the Hearts of Heart die overlaying the green on to the white and slightly off set. These two cards started off as me just playing to see how the dies cut and what I could do. They turned out way better than I had planed so they are now in the box that Tammy can pick cards from.
Goes to show once again you need to use up those bits and pieces of card you have left over.
Well I for one am glad things are getting back to normal, all this mad buying of food that folk were doing and will have wasted has gone until Easter. Tesco have got Easter eggs on the shelves today.
The weather here is terrible, we are lucky and won't get flooded but there are so many who haven't been so lucky. My heart goes out to them. Here's hoping they will get help to get back into their homes as soon as poosilbe.
Now I am off to make some more cards from that box of bits. I don't want to put it to one side, but will make up as many cards as I can.
Take care if you to drive on these water logged roads.
