Sorry I've been quiet for a few days, I've been away to France to visit my daughter, son in law and my gorgeous little 16 month old granddaughter. I really wish airports had craft rooms where we could go to play while we wait - after all they have children's play areas and bars, so why not craft rooms?
Anyway I'm back and trying to pick up on a few challenges I've missed out on while I was away, so I'm bundling a couple of cards together in a one-size-fits-all post.
First up, a card I made with odds and ends of leftover card. I really wish I'd remembered to back the card for that delicate die cut border with adhesive sheet before I cut it! But a cocktail stick and some PVA glue (and a great deal of swearing) worked as an alternative.......
I'm entering this card into
Less is More week 221 - Use a Tag
Addicted to CAS - #62 Black, white and gold
Pixie's Snippets Playground - week 174
My second card is also one for the Playground - in fact it used up more snippets than it appears to, because my first attempt used different wording, cut from individual letters, but I lost some and had to re-cut them (I think I may have a B and an S somewhere inside my bra right now) and then even with the help of my trusty post it notes I made such a pig's ear of lining them up that I had to go right back to the drawing board.
I'm also entering it into AAA Challenge #38 - There's a Hole in my card
Anyway, it worked the second time around and has the added bonus of leaving me with the die cut leaf swirl shape to use on another project.
