Such a busy day today, I had a new hot water cylinder put in and electricians and and builders and an insane kitty cat with all these people here and put on a lunch for my Grandaughter for her birthday, so busy busy, lots of people and noise..BREATH...Haaaaa, that's better, they all gone now...
So now I'm relaxed and happy and going to share another yellow and blue card, using very old leaf dies..
Gosh these fabulous leaf dies I've had since I first began die cutting..
And the background..
I used them, probably once and then they went into the too hard box..
but fished them out, had a play and fell in love all over again..
So the background die I cut out with some yellow paper I made with oxide inks...
And the top layer with my favourite green card stock...
Still fiddly, but I know a few more secrets now..
Don't squeeze them together, just place and slide, place and slide..
These flowers were left over from yesterday's flowers..
So leaves and background....
Oh, yes, I'm happy..
On go the flowers....
A bit of dimension, not too much..
On of my favourite sentiments from Kaisercraft,
stamped and gold embossed...
And there she is, all blue and yellow and pretty..
Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'm off to have a wee lay down, ate too much at lunch and most certainly will not be eating chops for dinner now.
Take care everyone..
