It's been a strange week really, very mixed weather. Sunny and quite warm then, chilly with rain. Len went back to archery on Wednesday morning for the first time for a year and it was a shock to Dudley for sure. He, Dudley not Len, lay at the top of the stairs, watching the front door for the whole morning until the 'aching archer' returned home.
I struggled to make some upcoming Birthday cards - lack of inspiration didn't really help either. And my exciting outing of the week was a routine dental check-up.
This current challenge's 'snippets sample' card is actually a card made by the lovely Liz of 'Crafty Sunflower'. I spotted it linked into the challenge that just closed and loved it immediately, earmarked it as a 'pick' then rushed out to buy the set of dies for a Playground prize, plus one for me of course. I then realised this shoulder really needs more TLC so I asked Liz if I could use her card image as a sample - and she very kindly said 'Of course'. And here it is:
I'm hugely grateful to Liz for coming to the rescue - I think we might have had a challenge with just a photo of my huge concertina snippets folder otherwise!
To find out how Liz made this clever card, you can find out all about it on her blog post HERE. I do so love the design and even the sentiment has that 'paint brushed' look about it. You can rely on Liz to come up with some clever ways to use dies and this is a perfect example.
And here's the prize on offer:
It's a Sweet Dixie 'DIY Tools' set of dies needless to say, with lots of depth to the die cuts as well. The image is from the internet as still I'm waiting for delivery of the sets of dies. Absolutely perfect for male cards - it's a while since we had a 'male' themed prize and Liz's design especially is so very clever.
