Hi Everyone, I was looking through my photographs and realised I hadn't shown you what I did before Christmas I also found a more to show you I hadn't done so before.
This was a present and something I had wanted to do for a long time, after seeing an inspirational blog post from Janette here, she had said where to get the board from and I ordered it that day. I bought a pack of large Bull Clips and a few months later, I got to make it! Yep! a few months! by then I had forgotten where I had seen it and the inspiration of painting the board I had seen. Too late for me to make it more interesting, but I screwed the bull clip on, added a tie to hang it on then grabbed some black vinyl, I went to my die cutting machine, and cut the words. I then placed them onto the board, after making sure I added them under the note pads I had bought for it.
Something else I made before Christmas, as it was needed on the 5th January - my #3 brother's birthday card. I know I was up to my neck in things, with no mojo and a complete loss as what to do. I spent more time thinking about it than making this card. I wanted a quick card, but one that was special to him, luckily for me a freebie popped up in my mail and it was perfect for him. It also had a saying on it my SiL says to him when they go out, so it was meant to be. My Silhouette is becoming more handy to me than Photoshop surprisingly, after all these years. I took it into the die cutting machine and resized the card to 6 x 6 instead of the 8 x 8 it is supposed to be. I then cut all the layers out and layered them together adding them to the 6 x 6 card.
Another card not posted here and again a quick make for a birthday I had forgotten after my diary failure. It had to be made to go into the post that day. I used an image I used years ago, I added a wall background and a brick pavement then a die cut flower, in my mind a dandelion weed coming out of the pavement (sidewalk). Thank goodness for Photoshop! That's not what I said earlier though is it?
