Good morning lovely folk. Hope everyone is ok?
Thank you for your wonderful comments and for your concern. Staying home and crafting is still fraught with danger. Twice, I have dropped one of the GC plates, sideways on onto my foot and I won't mention the craft knife.
I'm not going to mention any mishaps in future but then again you all think I'm a clumsy duck anyway lol!!!
Now, today's card is one that was intended to be one of John's samples for Thursday but sadly, it never made it out of my craft room. As you can see, there's a few die cuts involved and it was half way through when my pink Princess went bang!!!
I have now managed to finish it with my new teal GC and thought it deserved to share its moment with the others.
I have used Sue Wilsons Quilted Blocks Striplet to create the patchwork effect. I have seen a similar technique in Blogland and I think Sue herself did a tutorial using a different die.

This is not a swift card to make (especially when your die cutting machine decides to retire halfway through) but I think its worth the effort and although the centre square is on foam pads, its still a relatively flat card.
Busy times at work again so I will try and keep on top of visiting as best I can and if I fall behind, I will try and catch up in any free time I get. I'm adding some new shelving to my craft space so that involves sorting out my bits . . . . . . . . . . its a frightening activity when you see how much stuff I have and don't use!!!
Hope the coming week is kind to you all.
