Nephew card

Hi all,

It's been a week of resting and trying to not do too much, still had to do a little crafting.  The arm is a bit better today but I've been deliberately putting it in a sling today to stop me using it and it isn't as sore so fingers crossed.  I had a lovely morning out yesterday with my hubby driving me to get mine and my daughter's hair cut then I had a coffee and cake at The Holiday Inn with 3 M.E. group friends for an hour .  He even pushed me into the cafe as I can't propel myself at the moment - bless him, he deserved his big breakfast at Makro while I was there. It was lovely to get out and have a girly chat - I have spread my crafty spell and 2 of them spend more than I do on crafting, I did say quietly that I forgot to tell them how addictive it is yet very therapeutic! Here's my nephew's card:
I used:
Black card, buttons, twine,LOTV cute squares - pre-coloured but added distress inks to it for the sky and grass, gingham papers, typed sentiment and postage xcut die.

  4. Hi Debbie this is lovely, fab coulours and your Nephew will love this. Thank you for your lovely comment today, ref the dies, the swirl one I bought yesterday in the craft shop in Tarleton village in Lancashire. I have binned the packaging and so dont know the makers name it was £7.99 and is a new range she is stocking I could have ( if i had had the money ) bought one of each that she had they are gorgeous. The star is a die which cost 5.99 for five nesting stars I bought it at Craft inspirations (Cardcraftplus.co.uk) in Preston but I think you can buy these in most stores again I dont know the name its not a spellbinders or a crealies but I found it great value.I used the stars because the image is wearing a sheriffs star on her skimpy top . Hugs Elaine .
    Have a nice Easter , If I do remember the names I will let you know
