Patsy May Foil It machine

 Hello All
Thank you for coming and if you have time to comment, then thank you I appreciate all of your feedback. This week has been quite busy so far and so will the next few days ahead. Tonight I have my fortnightly craft club and a couple of ladies were quite impressed with my humble book fold they have asked me to show them how to do it.
Tomorrow night my daughter is teaching a Rueda class and we always go to support her. 
Saturday, OH will be working and so I'll be catching up with housework (boring!) and Sunday we may go to an organised charity event at Paradise Wildlife Park in Broxbourne

So, today's card will be used at some point and I'll add an appropriate sentiment. I have had a Patsy May Foil it machine for ages and forget to use it! I have a very cheap black ink only laser printer that only accepts paper. So it does restrict what I'd like to do on occasions, hence it doesn't come out to play very often
Anyway, the paper and images are from a My Craft Studio cd-rom in the Anniversary collection called Serendipity NSR. It contains full colour images/backgrounds and black and white versions too. So the small tile is the one I printed on my laser printer and foiled it in gold. Next time I will decoupage the main image

I'm going to enter it into the latest House of Cards latest challenge - Metallics here

  2. Hi Karen
    Super image and foiling.
    My craft room is to small for a printer and foiling machine, sadly.
    Off to watch John now.
    Best wishes.

  7. Good morning Karen just love that little bit of foiling. Not heard of the one you have but have watched a couple of shows with the Minc machine but wasn't going to the expense of a laser printer as well! The white flower looks as though it is decoupage on my phone picture so this must be a very good CD. Sounds like you have another busy weekend so enjoy. I'm off later to battle the A12/M25 and going to my mum's. Best wishes Jackie x
