Good Saturday Morning Ladies,

Michele has written another fabulous Magazine review below, but first I want you to look at the absolutely amazing Fish Bowl card that Michele made for her friend, so much amazing detail it looks real, you must be so pleased with it Michele.
Michele's Magazine Review
Simply Cards & Papercraft this month has a brilliant free gift-a set of Stamps, Dies & a stencil called “Coffee Break”. There’s loads of ideas & inspiration inside the magazine using this free gift. This is a set you could use all year round for many occasions.
Cardmaking & Papercraft has a lovely Stamp set plus an Embossing Folder and free papers Free this month. There’s an interesting feature on Border punches-something we’ve all probably bought and not used for some time
Papercraft Essentials has a great gift this month-perfect for making those difficult “Male” cards! There’s lots of ideas inside showing a variety of cards using the free gift. There’s also a great article on “Off the Edge Diecutting” -a great way to use your Dies to make a different looking card.
Making Cards magazine has a fantastic stamp set Free this month plus some coordinating papers. These would appeal to any cat lover -Perfect for my crazy friend who is a purple loving, cat obsessed person!
This is a Special edition of Diecutting Essentials (Issue 7) which has an alphabet die set, stamps, an Embossing Folder and some lovely papers. There’s loads of ideas inside the magazine-one great article is on Eclipse Cards.its very well explained and I think I might have a go at this technique having read the feature.
Papercraft Inspirations has a lovely oriental stamp set. Lovely ideas inside the magazine using your free gift. There’s a feature using Circle nesting Dies which has made me think how I can get more use out my sets of Dies. There’s also a feature on using Twine-I have amassed quite a collection of this & am never quite sure how to use it so this is a great inspiration for me.
Diecutting Essentials has a stunning free die this month -Pretty Quick stained glass Peacock. There’s so many ideas inside the magazine just using this die set. There’s another feature on Nesting Dies, different shapes in this feature which makes you realise how versatile the basic shape Dies are.
That’s all for this months magazine review.
Thank you so much Michele for another fantastic Magazine Review
Pat sat and made some Distress Oxide Backgrounds when she came over a couple of weeks ago to use behind her Groovi projects, they work perfectly Pat, so bright and cheerful.
Pat has shared some photographs of her new doors that divide her lounge and dining room, the top photo is the hole left after the removal of the old doors. I must say Pat, they look like they let much more light in. Thanks for sharing the photos.
Maria has shared the cards that she has made for two previous challenges, the first was a Sketch challenge, you have made a fantastic card for that challenge Maria.
The second card that Maria has shared is for the Embossing Folder challenge from a couple of weeks ago. I love that Embossing Folder that you have used , that cute ribbon rose is the perfect embellishment.
Thank you so much for taking part Maria.
Thank you to all of you that took part in todays post, the weekend blogs are for sharing all of your hard work, I love seeing what you all make.
Margaret had her operation yesterday afternoon, so fingers crossed she feels a little better today, sending love and hugs Margaret. XXX
Love and Hugs to all of you too,
