Good Morning Ladies,
I today finds you well, my heartfelt hugs are on the way to those of you that are not feeling 100%.
I had a very slow day yesterday after a bit of gardening on Saturday and the excitement of the Craft show at Bedford yesterday. I will say that it was nice to have plenty of room to get around in the hall but it could have done with a few more stands, I was convinced that Jenny Mays would be there (Hobby Art) but she wasn't, I love watching her demonstrations, we did watch Janet on the Aall & Create stand, she is lovely and very inspirational, she was also so happy to explain anything you asked. We did laugh though as she was demonstrating a 'Circle Cutter' basically a round tool with a blade that you whiz round to cut different size circles, I couldn't help but say that all of the old craft tools seems to be making a come back, we had circle cutters years ago before dies and die cutting machines, I don't think that we need to start going backwards, Sue and I were talking about it after and she quite rightly pointed out that you would be forever having to buy new blades. I wonder what else will make a come back!!
Today's card I made yesterday afternoon using the off cuts from that "Fancy Fold' card I made a few weeks ago.
These were the off cuts!
I cut some of the bits into 1 inch strips abd laid them on a piece of black card 1/4 inch Smaller than my black card base. I chose a quilting style lay out with 1/8 inch gap between tbe strips. To finish I created a border upon which I stamped the sentiment and embellished with a fussy cut flower from the paper above.
It's quite a quick card once you have chosen your papers and cut them into strips.
I hope you like the card my lovelies,
Love and hugs to all,
