A wordsmith - dreaming & wandering along the highways & byways off the thoroughfare called Memory Lane. Sometimes stopping to take in the natural beauty surrounding me - making "stuff", taking inspiration from others, visiting friends near & far and trying to come to terms with the greatest loss I have ever experienced.
Hello dear readers and friends, I hope all is well in your world. I really meant to set this as a scheduled post for last Monday, but after all my hard work drafting it I forgot to hit the publish button!! I do have a lot on my mind - I was just beginning to get my sense of equilibrium back - but now I have stuff in my life going on that is very hard to cope with, - but enough of that.
On to happier things - -
We organised a "Die cuts" Swap at our Craft club at our last monthly meeting - and all
those ladies who wanted to participate cut some dies of their choice - a
set of Nestie labels, 5/6 of a "Topper" type die or a set from a
collection - and I cut a set of fans from my Marianne Dies as my
contribution - but when I was getting them out to cut them - to my
shock/horror - I discovered that I have 9 dies which cut fans! To be fair one
set are background shapes for the delicate lacy tops - but I felt so
guilty!!! As a result - I thought - I really ought to use them!! So here
are a few of the cards - in varying sizes that I have made using them. I am obviously an addictive purchaser of shapes/dies which I like!!! - I succomb to the same things time after time.
This card was made using a dies from Joanna Sheen - and it really cuts well - it is very dainty and delicate and a small die - but so pretty. There are 2 in the package - the other die has a heart as a focal point - it is also very delicate and dainty - as you can see below on the on the 3x3 cards - and the heart cut out is a very acceptable size to use elsewhere - so don't discard it!!
This die is also by Joanna Sheen and is one of her larger fans - also very dainty and delicate in design which cuts beautifully!
and finally I have a card made with with my Marianne fan dies
Thanks for stopping by, as always it is kind of you to "call".
