What a day !
I wont bore you with my domestic problems but just let’s say that my lady that ” dose ” doesn’t at the moment and things have started to back up. Plus my oldest son decided to visit bringing his ” posse ” ( do they still say that the young uns ) with him for the weekend and boy can they eat !. Needless to say I have been spending my time between the kitchen and the ironing and trying to fit a bit of crafting in between . That’s a bit of a lie really have been only thinking about doing the dreaded ironing but its punishment enough. What I really wanted to do was to take part in a couple of challenges today with my favourite components die cuts.
I have spent hours and hours die cutting a multitude of forms. my desk is literally piled high with all manner of shapes of every size imaginable but nothing would come together too much choice. I’m having a nervous breakdown, I’m all die cutted out, so am posting something I’m not quite happy with. My Silhouette machine and I are exhausted !
The theme over at the sunday stamper is die cuts and Shels has just received her V……d machine
her piece was glorious !
Also over at Lets ink it up they have a similar theme die cuts and punches so it fits the bill perfectly there too.
I used my Silhouette machine for the die cuts and Crafty Individual stamp for the inked background I embossed my flowers with my texture boutique and then coloured them with a variety of distress inks by Ranger.
Hope you like it cos , cos if you don’t I think I’m gonna cry !
Don't cry Marie, I love your piece! I would also love a woman who does, I think they are quite rare! Don't worry about the ironing, eat chocolate and craft, it cures everything!

Hi Marie, I love it, love the colours, love the composition and love the flower 😉 I wasn't happy with my doll for last week – it seemed like a good idea at the time and as I was so late doing it I decided to post it anyway. Am working on this week's entry but am already undecided :-/Do you still have family over here?Anne xx
