Circles


Its been hard going lately, the building conversion has come to a halt while the moisture dries out of the floor before the flooring can go down and then it will go mad again with everyone doing their finally fix.
Its also been a worrying time lately with my Dad. While Mum has improved and is happy in her new Care home, my Dad has been going downhill and is now in hospital and if I'm honest I doubt he will be going back to his flat the best outcome will be that he too will have to go in a home.
Determined to make a card and I saw Lin's fab card where she returned the die cut back into the card. I decided to use Spellbinders Stately Circles this is so I could join Less is More this week and the Hero Arts sentiment was in a drawer beside me and fitted so thats why I've made my first Christmas card for 2014. The poinsettia is a Spellbinder die with some added gold pearls for the centres.
I'm thinking that CAS cards will be the order of the day for a while.

  1. Very very pretty. I've been playing around with sticking diecuts back into their holes...kind of a cool look. Here's to a smooth and quick finish to your conversion project. Mine's still coming along. Hugs, Kathy

  18. So sorry to hear that your Dad is poorly. It is so hard to see them struggle...at least in the care home you know they are getting well taken care of. It is a huge transition for them though!

    Your card is gorgeous. I love the look of this taking out the die and putting it back it. Wonderful!

  47. LOVE your inlaid diecut Debby - so pretty! I have never tried this technique - will have to give it a whirl.

    Sorry about your Dad - it's so heart-wrenching when your parents start to age and need more care. They need their independence but often they aren't safe to live in their own place anymore. I feel for you so much Debby - {{hugs}}
