Hi Again

First of all I would like to welcome my new follower Julieanne, thank you for following my blog.Well  I have finally given in and bought a Grandcalibur, mainly as now that I am making larger cards, I need larger embossing folders,and it was a good price on Ideal World. So I have had to have a move round to make room for it, and have had a clearout at the same time. How did I accumilate all this stuff? Well the tidy up is nearly finished, and I have a bag of rubbish, a pile of stuff for the grandkids craft box, and some things which I may sell, or should I keep them, will I need them?
Anyway I have managed to make a card today, quite a simple one, but I do like it.

I embossed the lines on the background card, using my Hougie board, and turned a strip the other way for the border. The butterfly is cut with a Marianne die, and the flowers punched with Martha Stewart and Tonic punches,and the papers are from the Papermania  birdsong pack.

A lovely card Irene. I keep toying with the idea of a GC but holding out. I spend too much already on dies, if I bought a GC I would have to buy some larger dies!!!
