Wonderful Day

Hello again,

I know I was complaining of all the summer heat before but we have had every single day of this month has been wet, wet, wet. Current local rainfall for the month stands at 333mm that is one entire school ruler worth and some (13.11inches), we don't have proper storm water drains around here but could use some when the weather is like this, cars quickly become aqua-planes due to the amount of water flowing down streets. Much safer to stay inside and play with craft supplies I mean keep tidying my supplies! 😉

This card was made for one of my Mum’s friends, pretty, purple and anything you like was the request, I am still loving cute little hedgehogs and have coloured a few the last couple of weeks, so one found a home.

Here is my card:-

What I used:-

White 12.6 x 17.8cm card blank (5x7”)

Amethyst & Pool AC cardstock

White card for printing

Digi image from Di’s Digital Images

Design papers from Sugar and Spice Studio’s (Spotlight store for those in Aus)

Purple bakers twine

Fiskars scalloped border punch

MFT pierced Oval Die

Inkylicious Sentiment stamp (from the Playground)

Clear embossing ink

WOW black embossing powder

Enamel like stickers (Reject Shop for those in Aus)
Apologies for the photo, due to the weather I had to photograph with a light on, balanced in my hand along with the camera.

Angelic Wishes

Hello again,

Well have you ever had one of those I must clean up moments, only to get part way through and get distracted? I have been trying to clear some of my mounding craft supplies and get them back to where they belong or in some cases put away for the first time. What has been my distraction? More lovely dies arriving every few days as I made an order for some Cheap China Dies- CCD (a term I first came across with Shaz in Oz of Calligraphy Cards, courtesy of RosA at Paperchase) and they have started arriving and needed a place to live, as they came I tried them through my machine and left feedback for each piece (required) which only added to the mess I was trying to get through.
I decided to keep my CCD separate to my other dies and have been making mini magnetic folders for some of the nesting sets using advertising magnets and plain Manila folders, the nesting sets are residing in an old VHS box and I’m wishing I hadn’t torn the plastic cover from the boxes so I could poke a list of what is in each box clearly down the spine or on the front of the box. 
Here is a picture of the doily die which is behind my image:

I have made a Christmas card for this years stash using a Tiddly Inks digi image called ‘Angelic Wishes’. Still on my plan to use some of my vintage-y papers I coloured the image to suit.

Here is my card:-

What I used:-

White 12.6 x 17.8cm (5 x7”) card blank

Cream cardstock

Freebie papers from a magazine

White cardstock

Faber-Castell and Derwent pencils

Wink of Stella on wings

WOW! Embossing powder Metallic Gold Sparkle

Ranger Clear embossing ink

Heat tool

Paper Mill Christmas stamp

CCD Doily die 😊 😊 WARNING THIS SITE IS ADDICTIVE AND SUPER CHEAP and they have lots of crafty bits!!!!! 😊 😊 **I will not be accepting any responsibility for enabling any of you**😉😉
Lifestyle- Nesting Oval die
Deep red seam binding

Adhesives:- Double-sided tape and PVA glue

I would like to enter this card in:-

Season’s Greeting’s Christmas Challenge #3 Anything goes or Optional twist heat or Dry Embossing (heat embossing, I have finally got my heat gun and powders out to play with!)
