Anyone who reads my blog will know I love Art Deco and Tattered Lace . I have several dies from the other collections. I saw this when it was launched on CCtv and loved it . I was very lucky that my Husband agreed to buy it for our 30th Wedding Anniversary , that is on the 4th April .
Here are 2 cards made using some of the dies . Such fun to play with .

I'm taking my Mum out to Lunch today , early Mothers Day treat for the two of us .
enjoy your day , lovely and sunny here, if a little chilly.

Build a bike

What a lovely day today , sun shinning and warm for a change . I've been to the hairdressers , colour and blow dry , I always feel better when my hair looks nice.
I decided to make some male cards , my stack of female cards is huge , but the men's ones are lacking . This is the first of many , I hope .
I've used a die that I got as a fee gift with a card mag, simply cards and papercraft, awhile back , it is a build a bike die and stamp set . It looks quite girly but if you par it down I think it passes for a man's bike . The bp (like a map) is from a do crafts 12x12 pad called Mr Mister . I used my ever fab and much used Sue Wilson double pierced square dies .
challenges entered :
alphabet challenge : zero embellishments .

hope your enjoying some nice weather . jane x
