A Crafty Afternoon

....is what I've had today, just me and Steve Wright tucked away in my craft room. I went to The Glitter Pot this morning and spent some more of my xmas voucher on stamps and a die-cut, and of course, I just couldn't wait to use them.
I'm a little later than normal with my LIM entry this week where the challenge is to use Die-Cuts and Punches.

I'm not sure if it looks somewhat christmassy? What do think? Maybe I should use a different colour card for the die-cut section next time. The die is by Memory Box and the sentiment is Rachelle Anne Miller.

The photo is not the greatest I'm afraid as the DSLR is still out of action. I took my battery charger back to the shop this morning and complained that it had hardly worked since I bought it 5 months ago. The male assistant told me in no uncertain terms without even plugging it in, that it was not broken but he would refund my money in this instance. (arsehole!)

Day 22 in February photo-a-day challenge is Where You Work.

I took this snap when I was a Flight Despatcher (I was made redundant just before xmas) and I was out and about on the airfield all day long. My new job is more terminal based and I will be starting it tomorrow after passing my training exams on Monday.

Will be back on my next days off so until then, thanks for dropping by and for all your lovely comments.

  5. Perhaps the shape of the trees is reminiscent of Christmas, but the colours change the vibe, it's so pretty.
    Good luck for tomorrow! xxxx

  6. I love this die, Fiona. I was in a store Saturday that had all these Memory Box dies and I wanted them all. I didn't get this one. I'm glad you did. It makes a really pretty card for any season.
