Thank you for popping by and if you're able to leave a comment, thank you.
You were all very kind about your comments about the dress. As you've mentioned, the next one will be easier to do. I do have other sewing projects in mind too. Now, when I bought the dress fabric I thought I was getting a bargain at approx £6 a metre (my local John Lewis was anything between £12 and £14) but a friend of mine buys hers at Walthamstow market/shops for anything between £2 and £4 a metre. So I'm going to go with her and stock up!
Today's make is my first card for 2015. I always make a sample in some random colours in case I want to "tweak it". For instance I added some die cuts to the corners because I felt that there was too much white showing BUT next time I will place the corners flush with the black mat.if you look closely you can see the side edges poking out, which i think spoil it slightly. I also trimmed away the red backing of the baubles because I didn't want the huge border this die set created. I cut out the black bauble twice. and folded in half to "decoupage it" This will probably be the main stay of this years cards in blues, Kraft card, may do silver, gold etc. I also, shadowed the sentiment and could probably have made the shadow slightly bigger

Nothing much planned for the rest of the week, dreaded hair cut tomorrow (I'm not very confident on what to ask for etc) Hope to go shopping after that for my daughter's fiance's birthday - ooh heck I need to make him a card!
May go dancing in the evening and then Saturday and Sunday a little bit of housework and craft!
