Old meets new

Thank you all for visiting my blog and leaving lovely messages. It is great to be back playing. As I moved some of my stash from A to B and left to right and back again , out poppet this scrap of work which may have been my attempt at t-bag folding. I took a piece of card I didn’t like and overprinted it as I needed to check if my printer worked in it's new position (I can now reach the ciss to refil it without acrobatics) and then played with my latest bit of stash. Well I have been quite good lately so deserved a treat – lol. It wasn’t the die on my wish list, as that one was out of stock, and I hummd and haaahd but it is definitely my sort of die. I cannot believe that the card candi fits perfectly in the centre. So I’ll pop it on here. Later today  I toddle along for a shearing in case I get mistaken for a dulux dog next time I go out even in a slight breeze. Enjoy your crafty fun and hope you are all keeping well. 

Paper and card - card blank is a 19 x 12cm made using overprinted card,
  the die cut paper is from annamarie designs 6x6.
Dies used – Poppystamps(Memory Box) Grand Gothic Stained Glass,
Gypsophila flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
and a single card candi.

  2. What a lovely card Flora it almost looks like a stained glass window
    isn't it nice to have your work space sorted but if its anything like mine it will be the only time its tidy but then I craft better in a mess :)
