Good Morning Friends,
Thank you so much for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it. I can't believe that it was Monday I last posted..I actually have quite a few cards to blog, I just haven't had time to write them up! Why does everything come at once? Amy and I are doing a one off workshop for a local community craft group next week, we have another workshop on Thursday and I have a craft fair on Saturday next week...I have had to turn down commissions because I just can fit them in!
This craft fair was going to be so well prepped...I would have a good selection of cards, a mini workshop for anyone who wanted to make something and some little felt bunny decorations..well I have a small supply of cards, no makes prepped and one bunny! Oops! I know one thing for sure, once the fair is over I am going to totally declutter this craft room because I can't find a thing!
I have managed to drop in and comment on most of your blogs this week and saw lots of lovely cards and makes...you all seem to be having a busy time too. I didn't show my desk on WOYWW this week though..I was way too ashamed of the state of it :)
So to my card...
This is a really simple little card made using Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles - such a lovely die that I felt it would make a pretty stand-a-lone card. I nested the two largest dies and cut them to create the aperture in the centre. I also cut the largest die again to form the back of the card, but I actually mounted them on a small card blank. I backed the aperture with some sparkly paper from my Desert Blooms pad and added a lacey oval and butterfly from 'Wings of Hope'.
Guess what I have in pieces on my dining table?
It's a bad photo because I snapped it with my camera in artificial light, but yes folks it is my old GC.It is one of the first models and they apparently had a defect that can cause the screws behind the handle to work their way out..well one was out (that was rattling around) and the other one fell out when I opened it. I wasn't happy with the state of the screws so we are going to look for some replacements at the weekend and then (fingers crossed I should be able to use it at classes!
Thanks for stopping!
