Hello Everyone Thank you for popping in. I do appreciate it and value your feedback. So where is our summer? I cannot believe we are now in June. It has been so cold.
As you know my GC died and later today I hope to be "playing" on my new Platinum. As I probably said before I went for this machine because of its size - A4, requires less cranks of the handle, has a more even pressure, therefore cuts more often in one pass and later in the year, Spellbinders are bringing out a motor - but you all know that. I will let you know how I get on.
Little Oscar is thriving, when I've downloaded the photos from my camera and worked out how to get them off "WhatsApp" I will start a "Nanny's Bragging Book" and post some snaps of him. Talking of which I treated myself to some Terial-Magic and want to design, print, stitch my own cover for this book. The only one I've seen for sale (that I like) is in pink! Again, I'll let you know how I get on.
Today's card is a variation of one I have made previously for friend's birthday who makes the most exquisite quilts. It is a shaker card, using safety pins, beads, press studs etc. I designed the papers on Serif to fit one of the Spellbinder Large Square dies. I even created "stitch" lines in Serif
