Sending Mail


Time for a new challenge on Everybody Art Challenge and this week is for shaped cards. This is a bit tricky for me cos I still haven't brought dies that fit in the big shot but give me a reasonable size card. So I got out my cricut out and cut out two octagon out and using a folded strip joined them together.
The most difficult was the layout but once I decided on the strips everything else fell into place.
The sentiment is one that I've had for a while no idea whose now and I used a Spellbinders Floral Oval for it.
My flowers are a Poppystamps die but cut twice to give me some pink flowers to add to the stems.
Of course my image is a Saturated Canary. I was really pleased how this turned out.
Do pop over and check out the team and hope you can join us this week.
Well its been really strange not posting for two days but I had a bit of melt down at the weekend we had arranged for someone to hang the cupboards and sort out the worktop in the outhouse and they let us down.
Yesterday I had to go out and today I'm house sitting again but this time I've the delivering company phone number.
I shall be back tomorrow at 2pm

I do like the manner in which you have framed this concern plus it does indeed present me personally a lot of fodder for thought. Nonetheless, coming from just what I have experienced, I just trust when the comments stack on that people today continue to be on issue and don't embark upon a tirade of the news tour. Yet, thank you for this fantastic piece and even though I do not concur with this in totality, I value the point of view....Cccam Server

This is a gorgeous SC image, and the shape of the card is lovely Debby. I love all the die cuts, and I have to say that MFT border is my favourite. The spots and stripes of the dp are just adorable. It is so frustrating when people let us down and waste our time. Why is it that they seem to think their time is more important than ours! Ok, my rant is over. Stay calm Debby, just think how great it will be when it is all finished. x
