Oh my goodness I didn't realise that I hadn't schedule my DieCember post but its been a bit manic in our house. Starting from Friday last week I went to Portsmouth Historic Docks Victorian Fayre and the following day I went to an All Day Crop. I did come home earlier I was already feeling shattered from the day before. Found out my son's operation was brought forward to Monday, enough excuses lets get back to the card.

Once again the lovely folks at Simon say Stamp sent me a die so I could join in with all the fun, the die is the Large Outline Thanks. It was bit difficult to think of a different way of using it my head is full of Christmas. I decided to see how it worked out didn't realise that it cut thanks with an outline of the letters, clue was in the description Debby!

So I used the Echo Park  Hello Baby Boy paper pad which had this checked one but any would work just as well. I carefully place the die on the check paper centrally so I could use the waste for  background. Cut it in gold to give me an outline and with white making sure you save the little bit for A. I backed the white with gold to match the outline and also makes the mat slightly larger to fit over the hole.

Now where did I get the sentiment, I remember now Thoughtful Messages it was on there. Its not crooked thats down to the photographer ME.

I love the colours in the check patterned paper and the contrast between the white and the green Debby, and I like the gold edge to tbe letters which makes them stand out so prettily. I hope your son's op. Goes OK. x
