 Hello everyone,

I had to really think hard to what day it was when my eyes opened up this morning..really, really hard, I wanted it to be Sunday, but alas, it is Tuesday, so I had to get up, it is cleaning day at my sons.

At least once I'm up the spring is still in my step and I whip around get things done then come home to play..

Time for a ships wheel, cut three times and layered up..

The centers which I have added myself a note to 
remind me they will be perfect with other dies too
when I need a small center..

and this die, really, but I did it and enjoyed it..

They were to go here...

I cut them...then glasses off nose on the table and glued these babies on..

Done!..and worth it, it's the little things.

Side opening card with a round opening this time..
or flap really.

Sorting papers, all those scraps too, I never want them to end..

My choices..

and to make the strip go further I cut thin strips to add on..
makes a difference and not hard to do.

The wheel went on to the front flap and gold stars were added here and there..

I think this is macrame cord that I tied into a square knot..

and added this beautiful quote inside..
a stamp from " Impression Obsession " red rubber Clingables.

The card closed and being gently held down by my pokey tool
as it wanted to pop open.. 

Standing up and a seagull flying high...

and propped open a bit and more seagulls..

So there you go..

All the cards are going out to the shop this morning.
so fingers crossed..

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow..

You put together everything brilliantly. Those tiny dots on the wheel are gorgeous, as is the ropeknot.
A super make again, which will not be in store for long.

so cool, I love the wheel and the layering behind it, having the birds inside is a neat touch and I love how you added the rope to it also!
