Alien Explorer

Window card

This is another card made using the "Xcut dies by impress"

Inside card

Merry Christmas

This card was made using dies cut using the "xcut by impress". The die is fantastic with the merry christma all on the one die perfect size for a card (sadly though did you notice that i missed the s of the end of christmas ? Well there was a reason for that as the die has all the letters needed including 3 "r's" but sadly only has 1 "s" so have to put back through to cut another s ) Other than that they are great dies to cut paper and light weight card stock .

More braids (still having fun)

Well i spent today and yesterday having fun with my kumihimo plate again. going through some of the other ways to use it and making a good collection (Oh there are loose knots on the end of them which when i am using them on my cards i undo)

TRIMS (another gadget)

Have not made many cards the past couple of days as I was using the kumihimo plate to make some trims for my cards (this one is different to the rope weaving one as this one braids flattish strips very suitable for the cards) and as i make a lot of bee cards i thought i would play around with the yellow and black threads to see all the different patterns i could make
HERE is three diferent paterns i have made so far

Circles of luck
