Monday morning again!!

Good morning,

Where did last week go? It flew by for me. I've completed my 60 thank you cards that my daughter can send out to thank all her/our  family and friends for their generosity when my grandson Seth celebrated his 1st birthday. I wasn't happy with my previous example so went with something a bit simpler. His bedroom is decorated with Elmer the elephant so I used that as a basis.

I then backed it with some lemon paper using a woodware punch and stamped the sentiment. It's not too big either so that my daughter doesn't have to write an 'essay' in each one. I'm happy with this design as it was so easy to replicate and I managed to make them all within a day which was including making the 60 envelopes as well. I'm just glad I don't have to write them!!!!

I'm hoping to just craft this week just for the fun of it. It's the first time for a while I don't have any orders or wedding stationery to do. You never know, I might just have the time to have a tidy in my craft room.

Thanks for looking x

New X cut dies


I've been playing with my new dies that Father Christmas and the birthday fairy brought me!!!!

My birthday is close to Christmas so I'm lucky to have some new crafty stash to play with. This year I've had the new x-cut dies that will help you make 'scenes' on your card. I'm not going to use the design I posted for the 'thank you' cards but I did use one of the dies.

Here is a card just using the village dies and layering them up.

This card could be used for birthdays and even wedding/anniversaries as long as you make the church predominant. I've only just started playing but I might try adding Pink Petticoats 'cloud' papers behind it and see how that looks.

Thanks for looking xx
