I know there are a few of you who are not too good at the moment so I am sending you these (((((hugs))))) please help yourself.
After a slow start we ended up with a rather nice day here. Washing all done, some of it ironed but the bedding will have to wait till tomorrow. I am really tired, did not realise Crafting could be so tiring.
The people who have been visiting my Blog for the past couple of years know my friend Elaine has a Tearoom where I have a cabinet to sell some of my things. Well I have been very busy making things to put in there. I have not been making so much as I have been suffering from a very sore left wrist since last October. I was finding using my GC, Cuttlebug or BigShot quite difficult and as for my eBosser it is a right "waste of space" I really do not like it. I have just been doing things slowly and not as much as I would have liked. Anyway wrist a lot better so it was down to work yesterday and today. OMG!! you should have seen the mess, we have had to eat in the Dining Room rather than the kitchen where it much more cozy. We are all tidy once again. I am going to spread my makes out over the coming week as I know I will not be making much.
Here is the first:-
Bags cut using an XCut Die and Centura Pearl Card.
The Bag Die is brilliant but it is rather sharp and cuts through some card rather than just embossing the fold lines. I find Centura Pearl one of the best to use.
Woodware Punch for the petals cut from White Vellum coloured using Spectumn Noir Pens
SB Foliage Die for the leaves plus leaf Dies from Sue Wilson`s Rose Set
Organza Ribbon from Meiflower
My leaves started like this:-
This is a great method for leaves I always struggled to get a shade of green I liked when I was cutting leaves.
That`s it for now
Thank you for calling by I really appreciate it
Hopefully I will get round to visiting you all sometime later or tomorrow
Till next time
