Friday Die Day

Hello friends

Firstly, thank you for your comments this week on my eye problems.
I quite like the idea of Bella becoming a guide dog except she is not
street wise at all, she would drag me under a lorry instantly! 
I'm glad to say I have an appointment next week to see a consultant,
(extremely fortunate to have private health insurance through my city job)
so I'll know a little more soon.

On the crafty front it is Friday and that means Friday Die Day.
This week it is Peaceful Garden, one of Sharyn Sowell's dies from her

The approximate measurement of this die is 
4.15 x 3.85 in. 10.50 x 9.80 cm

To start, I picked a good weight white cardstock and die cut the die three times.

I then glued each one on top of each other to create a thick element
to go onto my card front.

I then started my card front. Cutting a mat first with my 6 x 6 Matting Basics
I selected Distress Oxides and blending tools.
First colour.

Next two colours.

Spritzed very lightly with water for a subtle dotty look.

Went in with a sun ray stencil, love this stencil!

Stamped a sentiment (Altnew) 
and affixed the die cut onto the front of the card - easy! 
The finished card.

Got a bit carried away taking photos, it was such a sunny day! 

Really like this idea of layering the die cuts.

Peaceful Garden is available here and the full 
Great Big Wonderful World Collection is here.

This weekend we will be preparing all things website.
As mentioned, our existing site will be taken down Monday 
and fingers crossed the new one pops up very quickly.
I'll be sure to keep you posted.

Take care friends, have a lovely weekend - fingers crossed it is sunny
and you are doing what you love.
