Thank you to all my crafty pals for your lovely comments on my male card, I am just about keeping in front of the ones I need, I do have 2 surviving brothers and also 5 BILs, plus nephews etc and I am now starting to enjoy doing these male cards - lol, it really was a stash thing. I am always enjoying the gift that is blogland as I love wandering around your blogs. You can imagine my shock when I went to my blog and it said “blog does not exist” – sorry if you heard my squealing expletive, lol - anyway it said to click on something and enter my phone number as someone had tried to use my blog inappropriately – the bloggy people phoned me and gave me an unlock code and I was back in business. Phew!
Anyway onto my card and my usual bit of being distracted:-
I have been sorting through my dies and noticed that I did not have many border dies, I cannot use punches at all, as my osteoarthritis has taken away that ability (so glad I am not a horse), so I would love to produce what so many of you do with punches such as the Martha Stewart ones. Anyway I didn't find what I was looking for in the crafty shops, got distracted as we do, and I bought a gorgeous Memory Box die which is a butterfly border so my card attempts to make good use of it. This is a long die and I haven't used the full length of it. Did I mention I like butterflies!
