Good morning all. 
Had a very busy day yesterday, actually earned some money. I have one of those appointments where I sit on a panel and  we look at whether some person or organisation has slipped up in their professional role, and then I get paid money for it. as a result I did not get near my worktop until yesterday evening and spent a few minutes cutting out bits with my latest die cutter.

You can see some on the guillotine, black die cuts on brown card.

 Looking the other way you can see a finished card, hastily made for a friend who has just lost his father, and a pink and black one, half done, that I have pushed around and around for days trying to decide what to do with it.
 And the desk, as usual, is one big mess.
Today I must finish a card for my grandson.  His birthday isn't for a few days, but I keep putting it off and will soon be doing it in a rush. He is going to be playing Charlie Bucket in a school performance of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, so I have based his card on that. Will post it when it is finished.
Well it is nearly 10 o'clock and I haven't had any breakfast yet, so better go and get some.

Happy WOYWW, if your anything like me I still have loads of half made cards just waiting to be finished...........hope you get the ones you need done soon.

Yes, so m any half made cards and often the problem is I haven't got a ribbon or a flower the right colour. Very frustrating.
Thanks for your comments.

gah sorry, iPad is not playing fair tonight!.. The die cuts look very good on the brown stock I must say. I've been moving card and embellies around too - funny how one colour combo can be so inspiring and another can make us dither!

Mrs.D said...

Thanks Julia. The dies are Spellbinders Shapeabilites Ornate Squares and I bought them because I saw them on Create and Craft and thought I have just got to have those. The colour combination I saw on someone else's cards and thought it looked good. Got it all tucked away in my bag to take to craft club this afternoon, so maybe I can put it up on here later today.
