On Tuesday I decided it was time for a treat, so a trip to the craft shop was in order. I spotted these X cut dies in the form of a luggage tag, there are two luggage tags, a strap, two buckles and an ordinary tag. All for £12! Well I couldn't resist, and I bought two new stamps from Crafty Individuals. I cut the dies when I got home, luckily I had some suitable brown card, as you can see they look pretty realistic.
I had been tempted by the spellbinders on CnC but only wanted the celtic dies, which had already sold out by the time I logged on. I would like some flourish dies, seen some at the Craft Barn... should I?
While out shopping, and paying bills, the last of mum's bills. I spotted a cheap frame in Home and Bargain, just £2, a bargain, I knew what I wanted to do with it. Sadly I couldn't find the wooden spoons, which I'd needed - oh well, you win some and you lose some. I also got a decent sized rug for mum's room, which I had hoped would be useful in the living room but it was too small.
I've been watching the CnC birthday bash, I caught one show where this chap was making patterns, but with a gizmo, a very expensive gizmo. I use a pair of compasses, a ruler and stamps, and get the same result. There is an Indigo Blu show on Sunday, so I'll tune in to that. Well I hope to if Freeview has stopped messing around, I've had to retune 3 times, and do a manual retune as they've altered the channel settings. One poor chap in the paper shop was completely confused saying he couldn't get any channels. Well that's me for the night, off to make a cup of tea and go to bed. Who knows I may NOT wake up at 2 a.m. tonight.
Thanks for stopping by, have a good weekend.
