The image for this card was taken out of a book of short stories, this one being 'All she had now was words'. I rather liked this picture, so thought it was worth using. Simply matted on to a ready decorated 7 x 5 card blank with some Poundland blooms added.

This is a re-purposed card - it started off life as an Easter card, but has been changed around and had the 'just for you' banner added - I just didn't want to keep the original till next Easter. Background paper is K & Co, matted on to a card blank that already had the fancy border, which I brushed with distress ink. Flowers from Hobbycraft.

WOYWW 275


Having returned to WOYWW last week, here I am again (I feel the addiction creeping back already!). I enjoyed visiting other workspaces and thank everyone for visiting me and for leaving me comments. So here I am for WOYWW 275 - if you don't know what I'm talking about, click on the link and see Julia's post and then have a nosey at the other workspaces that are shared.

Last week I shared pictures that showed me accommodating my new toy, the Scan n Cut and later in the day I made a card that I linked to.

I shared that I had a bit of a dilemma because I have several DT designs to get on with and also need to sort a lot of my craft stuff. I admit that I was tempted to get on and play with the Scan n Cut, but I disciplined myself to get on with other things. I even did some sorting yesterday afternoon. It was a lovely day, so I took some boxed of stamps up to the summerhouse and did some sorting. A while ago I bought a box which is meant for gardeners to use, but I thought it would be just right to house small stamps in different categories. This is as far as I've got - thinking I might put some of the smaller ones on to uniform pieces of card to make it all look neat .... but I doubt I'll get round to doing that! Not sure yet where it will live - just perched here for the photo:



So, back to the Scan n Cut - last night I decided to have a look at Birds Cards where there are loads of free svg files that can then be converted to suitable files for the Scan n Cut using Scan n Cut canvas.

I downloaded a lattice file and cut - probably not the best to start with, because it's very fiddly to get all the bits off the mat, but hey ho!  It's 7 x 7, so I intend to use it on an 8 x 8 card ... but I'm not sure how or what for! Think I might make something to go under it using my gelli plate with acrylic paint or distress ink, but haven't decided yet.


This is what was left behind on the mat (poor picture because it was taken late last night):


Think I need to stop playing for a while and get back to doing things that need to be done. Watch this space!

Oh, and this is a picture of the workspace to the left of where I sit - thought I'd include it for those who think that I'm always neat and tidy!
