Class Box Frame & Gift Card

Hi there, Happy Jubilee Sunday to you! Did you watch the Flotilla? I sat and caught all of it, wow what a wonderful spectacular! Wish I had travelled up to London with the girls now to see in the flesh, even in the rain.
Firstly thanks so much for all of your wonderful wishes re my new DT position, it was so lovely of you to leave me such fabulous comments, thank you x

Here as promised, are photos of what we made a couple of weeks ago at my last class.  We altered a box frame using stamps, dies and pearls.
The stamps are a little old set and a new bird set, that I love from Stamping Up.  I used a combination of brown and pink inkpads, from Stamping Up and Tim Holtz.  The dies are a Sizziz butterfly one and a Die-namics one of buttons.  We added some twine from Fabulous Ribbons and a Spellbinders flower die for the centre.

Above is a little gift card we made to go with the frame.  Hope you like what we made, my ladies certainly did.  I have had to make a couple more of the original as a friend of my daughters brought it to give to her mother.  Have had a few more commissions too, am so pleased as I really loved making it.

Right, enough of this sitting about lol.  Have DT makes to get on with and I must test drive my new Big Shot.  My lovely well loved Cuttlebug was retired yesterday.  I worked out that if I brought new plates for it, it would nearly cost as much to buy a new machine, so thats what I did.  It had served me well, actually for over five years, so RIP my dear Cuttlebug lol.

Also I must help my lovely hubs, he is busy decorating the bathroom as we had a new set fitted last week.  I will keep him in cold beers and choccy biscuits, so hopefully the job will get done a lot quicker lol.

Hope to be back and will share a card.

Thanks for stopping by, so lovely to have you.
