Myra's masterpiece using Sue's new dies!
I have been so looking forward to showing you this card from Myra, she has used some of Sue's
new dies! I have copied Myra's description and added it below...
I used the Greek Island Lattice background die. It's beautiful , the centre piece is separate so it can be left out. I used blue behind it to make it look like a window with the sky behind! I used two of the border dies one in black and one in cream . I cut both into two pieces. Ouch! It doesn't show up very
I think you will join me in congratulating Myra,
this card is stunning and showcases Sue's new dies beautifully, you have got the balance just right. Doesn't it make a difference seeing the dies used in different ways, I wasn't keen on this background die to start with, but seeing it used here make me think that it can be used in so many different ways.
I have got all the photos to show you of Janet's French Paradise, so tomorrow I will showcase her lovely home, so that next time she has us all dreaming of log burners and nice wine, delicious Pastries & fresh bread daily, we can picture her there.
I have been asked to make a new baby card this week so I made a start on that yesterday and should hopefully finish that today!
I tried to get Paul to let me show his Valentine card that he made for me but he keeps saying 'why would they be interested in seeing that'! Baa humbug!
I truly hope that Sue won her awards across the board last night, I know she is a small fish in a big bowl as far as dies are concerned but I think her designs and the quality of the dies puts her up there with the top contenders! I would like to see her beat 'shattered face' & the one that goes 'with gin'!
As her dies aren't just elements, you can build whole cards from them and you get a complete collection with Sue's dies which I think is Unique!
Not that I need to sell Sue to you lovely lot!
I would like to thank you for welcoming Teresa to our 'coffee shop' yesterday, it is so lovely to see the numbers increasing.
Thank you once again Myra, for letting me share your lovely card.
Right I must get on, cards to make, daughters to entertain!
I will check in later, to top up the cakes etc.
Love and hugs to all of you
