Hello friends
I am emerging from under a pile of paperwork!
Emails, letters, articles and more  -
a creative mind is not always speedy at this sort of stuff but pleased to
report I've made quite a dent in it! 

As regards something crafty to show about a card featuring
Gold Facets and Charmed I'm Sure.
The Gold Facets is such a striking die with its de-boss and especially when you ink up
one of the middle dies and emboss.  It would look quite nautical in blue.
I also used one of the smallest Gold Facets to make the tag pretty.
I have these dies in stock and available here and here!
Pop over and check out some of the new dies now uploaded onto the website -
I'm loving the herbs - Basil and Sage.

I hope you enjoyed the weekend sunshine, I intended to get out to my garden but
my craft desk was calling much louder!

Take care friends.

Hi Christine, beautiful card today. Glad you have managed to make a dent with your jobs.
I very much liked the video yesterday of little Bella. I am not sure though who was the most excited - Bella or Mummy???
Enjoy the sunshine.

Hello. Luckily I have someone who takes most of the paperwork away from me. What a pretty card and I'd like to see it in blue. I don't have any of these dies so will pop over and have a look. xxMargaretxx

Beautiful card Christine, and I love the way you have attached the tiny tag - super idea.

Well done for clearing a lot of the paperwork, not nice to do on a sunny day (perfect here, its raining cats and dogs in Ireland)

Hi Christine
Gorgeous card today, kraft card always looks nice with white card too.
Hope you're gradually working through the pile of 'things to do' that you have come back to. I'm sure there's time for a cuppa in the sunshine today 😎
Have a nice day.

Great card and it is a very striking die. Pleased you had a lovely holiday - yesterday's photos tell their own story! I've missed a couple of days having been away and it is difficult catching up. Loved the video.

Hi Christine I am playing catch up as I have been on a sleepover with some of my Beaver Scouts over the weekend. Loved the pics on Saturdays blog, you all look like you had a great time. You certainly were busy weren't you:) The video of Bella greeting you was lovely, that makes getting home so enjoyable, especially when you have to face all of the post and laundry! At least the weather means you can get the washing dry quickly.
I love the card today, like Amanda-baconbits-at first glance I thought it was a Christmas card! The red/white combo make it a real stunner. Try not to work too hard today, ease yourself back into the routine gently. Take care.
