Hi there peeps, I know I've not been on the blog lately but I have been doing a little bit of playing, I've definitely got the hang of my Minc machine and am foiling anything and everything that stands still!  Watch it maestro!  I've also been playing with gilding flakes but, no matter what I use, I still can't get a good result so am a bit miffed tbh - will keep trying no matter what.

Anyway I'm posting my next DT card for OSAAT and our theme this month is AG with Remembrance Sunday/Day of the Dead.  I've made some poppies to put on my card using a die that I bought aaaages ago but have never used (Sue J)!

 Here's the prize for our Challenges during November

We'd love to see your cards entered into our challenge this time - as long as you stick to the theme, you can enter as many cards as you like and you can use any digi you like as well as die cuts, embellishments etc.


7" x 7" White card blank - Anna Marie Designs

I do hope you can join in, I know it's only a few weeks to Christmas but if you have the time we'd love to see you over at OSAAT.

Take care all of you, I'm just orf to do some ironing, which of course you know I absolutely detest but I have to do it!  Thank you for your comments and for stopping by - still appreciate every one even though I am a renowned bad blogger myself.

Big hugs to you all.

Love  Sue xxx
