Hello lovely ladies and gents.
Just popping in under the wire to enter this week’s challenge over at City Crafter,their theme this week is
Well we all love balloons now don’t we !
This is a Papertrey Ink die which I love but have found as with most dies that the borders are quite narrow and as I love to use double sided foam tape to give dimension I had to use my Silhouette software to enlarge the frame.
It’s quite an easy process once you get the hang of it and allows me to to play around with the die to get it just the way I want it,it really makes the die’s so versatile.
I used the Silhouette colour palette to fill in the negative space on the die and then printed it onto acetate which gives such lovely bright colours. I then lay the die cut frame over the top and popped up with double sided foam tape.
Do pop over and join in the fun at City Crafter as the DT has once again worked their magic.
I would also like to enter my card into Time Out Challenges as their theme is
Celebrations with an optional twist to use die cuts or fussy cutting
Lots of amazing cards from the DT and the gallery is full of stunning celebratory cards
Sorry for not commenting lately I made an unscheduled trip to the UK to see my dad who is suffering from ” Old Timers Disease ” and of course the rest of the mob. It’s so sad to see my dad like this and am not sure how long he will remember me for. It’s difficult being in another country especially as most of the weight falls on my little sister Kal who is just amazing.
Despite the sadness I had a fabulous time and laughed non stop with my sister Kal who is an absolute nutter and a fellow crafter. She really is such a wonderful generous and hysterically funny lady who managed to embarrass me everywhere we went.
I wanted to share with you an incident that occurred while I was away and show you the murky depths of my sisters humour. As many of my regular bloggers know I had some health issues that lasted for over 18 months and was confined to bed rest and crutches. Well the last few months I have been a whole lot better and life had gotten back to normal, unfortunately the condition has reared its ugly head and whilst I was in the Uk in a supermarket with Kal I had an attack. This consists of extreme pain in my ankle and I literally cannot walk, it also consists of me squealing like a stuck pig. So what did my lovely sister do…….. well after trying to take care of me for all of 5 seconds she realised this was an opportunity not to be missed and proceeded to find the most awful fragrance in the perfume section and spray me from head to foot . There was no escape and between stabbing pains I tried to hobble off but no she wasn’t having it, I was cornered in the frozen food section and subjected to her spraying frenzy until her desire to humiliate me wore off which took a long time coming. Please note this was a rather large supermarket in Liverpool people just carried on their normal shopping without batting an eyelid and after confiding in my neice she told me that her mum is a regular and the shoppers are quite used to her antics !!!!
Well thats all from me, it’s Easter this weekend here in Greece the weather is awful but maybe just as well as I have been confined to bed.
