Well I've got the date!

I went for my pre-op assessment today and got the date of 23rd May for my hysterectomy. Not having the best time at the moment I'm missing my Mum and Dad so much and am very low. We are off to Florida in 9 days time and I'm not at all in the holiday mood. I am trying so much as I want the girls and Ryan to have a wonderful time. I've got a whole new wardrobe and all the things I want but I'm just not feeling it :(

Hoping the sunshine will help, fingers crossed.

Birthday card

Using the faux letterpress method I embossed the background card and then used various Sue Wilson dies to create this card for my Mother in Law's birthday.

Anniversary card

Kraft card base, Lilli of the Valley image and edgeables cut in cream with a few mini roses and pearls added.

Die cutting tip to stop those pesky little bits from sticking in the dies!

I have tried the dryer sheet method (can't get fragrance free sheets here in the UK and it leaves a residue on the card) wax paper all of them and don't die cut very often as I hate the poking out of all the little pieces! This trick by Swathi using plastic carrier bags works an absolute treat :)

All my dies are coming out of hiding now and I'm buying new ones, especially Sue Wilson and Heartfelt Creations which I have just discovered :)

Anniversary Card

Using Die-sire corner dies and Sue Wilson's bed of roses embossing folder which I swiped over with Adirondack Snow Cap pigment ink.
