A few weeks ago I reached half a century, what a silly age to be, it made me laugh so much, I thought that only old people became 50! 
Anyway, a lovely friend of mine treated me to a gorgeous new die and finally, today, I got chance to have a play with it.

For my second cards, I cut the diecut in half and hid the cut under the scalloped edge created with a "Lawn Fawn" edging die. These cards are only small but perfect for a little thank you.

I'm using these cards for the following challenges:-
CMC59, Use dies,
CHA19, Thank you,
TTPH67, Die cuts,punches.

Die Cut And Monochrome

I thought I'd share a couple of cards made a couple of weeks ago using the lovely
The first one I cut in two colours, alternating them as I layered them up. I also shaped the blooms adding tiny seed beads as stamens.

 I made the background for my second card by gluing together 3 cuts of the Lavinia butterfly die and using it to emboss my card using the tan mat through the 
grand calibur

I'm using my cards for the following challenges:-
Little Claires 51, Shaped card,
We Dodoobadoo 18, Enhance your diecuts.

Snow And Sparkle With Lavinia

The new theme starts today at 
Lavinia Stamps Challenge.
It's a great one for all of you Lavinia lovers that want to get some Christmas cards made!
I flicked masking fluid over my card before inking up my night sky and stamping Santa and his Reindeer
 onto the freshly fallen snow lol!
 I did have a bit of a laugh when I'd rubbed of the dried masking fluid and it revealed a few rather large snowballs instead of delicate flakes. Oh well!
There's a great randomly picked prize as always, a £40 voucher to spend in the Lavinia shop where you can now treat yourself to some of the gorgeous new 
A blog isn't essential as email entries are also accepted.
