Good morning everyone. Hope this finds you well.
I apologise in advance that this is a little photo heavy as I thought I'd show you how I used one of the Doodle Rose Wreath dies to make the above card and also, I made it to a local craft show so there's a snap of the goodies. Its also a bit waffle heavy, so you may want to fix a coffee first lol!!!
Now, you'll be relieved to know that this is the last of the Doodle Rose Wreath cards that I made for John's shows.
I wanted to do something completely different with the dies and I think this achieved that.
Bright white, sky blue and cobalt Foundations card
Doodle Rose Wreath - shaped centre die only
John Lockwood sentiment
Mei Flower navy ribbon
This is the die that I used from the set and how I got the cut outs for either side.
The pieces should just come apart but would just need a little snip otherwise. Then cut the flat edges to the width you want and turn them around and put them together as per above.
For the white layer, I just used the same die, matching the pattern to nip out pieces to continue the pattern (hope that makes sense).
And, you end up with a card that, I think, could be used for a male.
I woke up feeling well on Saturday so decided to go to the papercraft show at the Motorcycle Museum near Solihull. Sadly, Christine couldn't make it but Mr D came with me. I thought he would park himself in the coffee shop with his newspaper but he decided he wanted to go into the show (that's another £4 I could've spent on goodies lol!!!).
Here are my purchases . . . . .
Not excessive as its a small show, but some things were on my list so I'm glad I went.
Yes, I know there is yet another First Edition pad there but can anyone really have enough lol??? And yes, that is a CC A4 embossing folder for £3 and stamps for £2.50. . . . . Bargain!!!
As I was thinking of calling it a day, having done about an hour and a half, the fire alarm sounded and we all had to evacuate the building. As we stood outside, Mr D says "I knew there was a way I could get you out of that building" laughing.
As I looked at him suspiciously, he profusely denied having anything to do with the fire alarm and said he was only joking.
I did then hear it had been set off in another part of the building. . . . .phew!!!
As punishment for the bad joke, I went back in for another 15 minutes lol!!!
I'm continuing with my mission to get the Christmas cards done. I've even bought a daylight bulb for the craft room so that I can work in there longer on dull days and evenings (Its at the front of the house, which is North facing . . . . . the price to pay for a South facing rear (not to mention my South heading rear lol!!!)
Glad to hear the leg is better Nancy and fingers crossed for the cataract. Maureen, I would have been mortified. I know Nesta and Davey keep their cards but I don't dare ask anyone else lol!
That's it for now folks (don't cheer quite so loudly eh lol!!!)
Hope that this week is kind to you all.
