Just taking a rest from preparing things for the workshop on Saturday so thought I would pop back in for a chat.
After the previous post I did pop outside & photograph my rowan tree;
Here it is
a couple of close ups of the masses of berries.
Pretty isn't it.
At the weekend when Rita sent me the photograph of her card that was featured in a recent magazine she commented that I should send in a photo of the new home card I made for our daughter. I haven't sent things to magazines in years. After a little thought I decided I would give it a try - so we will see what happens.
Yesterday I had rather a frustrating craft session - I wanted to use a die I had bought from Crafters Companion. It is one of their Edge'ables dies & is called Bethlehem. Three times I tried to cut it & three times it really stuck in the die & therefore did not come out clean. Also the embossing was non existent. So this morning I shot off an angry email to them - so again - I wait to see what they say;
The bottom image is the die cut. Laid like that on a piece of card it looks ok in the photo - but the 2 end palm trees are torn & other parts are distorted. The top image is the die with all the residue in it & you can see where part of the image is still in there as well. Those pieces are so difficult to get out I have just left it on the side thoroughly fed up & annoyed.
Right, that's me for today.
