I hope you are all having a great week.
We are off to New Jersey for a few days this weekend, so friends will be cat sitting for us :-) I am hoping to get a chance to go to some of the craft shops, as even with the terrible exchange rate I'm sure to get a bargain - that's what I'm telling hubster anyways LOL!
So, I actually do have something new - I treated myself to a Big Kick/Big Shot die cutting machine. Even managed to sell my old Cuttlebug - so more crafty monies available! I really have to start using my dies more and today I did :-)
I decided to use a lovely paper stack by My Minds Eye, called The Sweetest Thing - Tangerine. I also got out my Heartfelt Creations Delicate Aster dies, and the Spellbinders Classic Large Scalloped Circle dies to make up a card.
I really enjoyed making these flowers and should do it more often :-)
I cut three different size circles and layered them up. Popping the last one, with the sentiment, up on some foam to add a little depth.
For the inside, as always, using the same papers as the front and there's plenty of room to leave a hand written message.
I inked all the edges of all the layers, the edges of the petals and leaves, with CTMH Sorbet.
Here's a close up of those flowers :-)
Yesterday's venture into the craft room ended up in the bin. Do you get days like that?
Not long now till the girls go back to school - just under 2 weeks. Off to Staples to get all their bit's and pieces that they will need for the new school year.
Thanks for stopping by today.
