Good morning everyone. How's it hanging? I would say that I hope that you were all well hung but I'm guessing that may sound rude (Elaine and Maureen, that is definitely not a subliminal message about Flash)
Crikey...........its March!!!!! Who stole January and February? It doesn't seem 5 minutes since I was getting intimate with a turkey.
A couple of non working days now to catch up on shopping and housework but a more steady pace than last week.
Now today, we're back to Christmas. This is the second of the three ticket/money wallets I made for my friend. This one was to hold panto tickets for her two nieces.........oh no it wasn't........sorry couldn't resist that one (although my chums from foreign climes are probably wondering "what is she on about lol!!!) I'm glad you liked the poinsettia one.
I thought the kids may appreciate a pop up style ticket holder. The pocket for the tickets is behind teddy...........you can just see the notch I cut out to make it easier to get the tickets out.
And of course the beauty of these things is that they fold flat!!!
The components were all from a Hunkydory Christmas kit I chopped up, even the card is Adorable Scoreable from the kit. I'm on a mission to use up these kits as I bought two large ones from C & C as my first foray into card crafting proper, about a month before I saw Sue Wilson do a die cutting show, then they got shoved into a darkened corner.
Just a bit of fun for the ankle biters.............talking of which, I had a "darling" 4 year old on Sunday, in the shop, who just decided to stand there and wet himself.........deep joy!!!
Mum comes up to the counter to tell me and turns to walk away but I say, "just a minute" disappear through the back and reappear with paper towels and antibax spray, which I thrust at her.
I'm guessing by the look on her face, that she was expecting me to be doing the honours but soon realised that I wasn't, so she handed them over to her other half and frog marched her little cherub through the door giving him what for. Sadly, its about the third time its happened in the past 12 months.
On a lighter note, here's a bonus card today in the form of the gold version of the card I showed you all previously here.
Isn't that a fab reflection at the bottom from the gold mirror card? The Christmas tree die cut is cut from a double sided adhesive sheet (a tricksy thing to do) and the front of that is covered in gold gilding flakes.
Would be great for batch making if you just gilded a die cut rather than cutting it out of a sticky sheet.
Well, that's me for today guys and gals.
Hope you have a smashing week ahead.
