Goodness - two posts on one day! But really this one is preparation for tomorrow as I know I won't be around for much of the day. Cantante, the choir Chris and I sing with, have their last concert tomorrow, at lunch time, so I will be out for most of the day.
So what's on my desk this evening. Well not a lot, but I am sure some of you can identify with this. When new stash arrives, occasionally it sits around for ages waiting to be used, but more often I have to have a quick little play, and that is what I am doing here. A small order arrived today from Joanna Sheen and it included a lower and upper case die plate for a fancy script. I am very pleased with the way it cut, even with quite heavy gold card, and it is a good size for scrapbook titles. There were also three tiny word dies - Happy, Birthday and Christmas. It is so much nicer to add a matching card sentiment than to try to colour a peel off, or spoil a finished card with a smudged stamped one. I am sure I will use these a lot.
The other items in the package were two stamps, the lovely flower heads from Indigo blu that you can see on the paper, and a plate of stamps all about peaches. This is an old plate and was very reduced in her sale and it will be very useful for me in my Project Life book and on jam labels. This is waiting to be mounted on foam before I try it out.
So that's it for today, but before I go, here are the three ATcs I have received in the WOYWW swap. They are (from left to right) from Annie, Jo and Sara. Thank you all. They are just great. I have one more to come but as I know it is delayed I decided to go ahead and show these ones now.
And the one I sent back is here. I made the mistake of thinking I could print the bunting over my painted background, but it showed through all the white parts, so I ended up printing it again on white sticky back cotton paper and cutting each flag out individually!
Tomorrow morning I shall be linking this up to Julia's blog, and hopefully by bedtime I will have been back to visit as many of you as I can.
