This is a scheduled post as we are in Calgary visiting family for a family reunion.
Our challenge this week at Phindy's Place is to create a card or other paper crafted project featuring DIE CUTS.
I encourage you to pop over to Phindy's store and check out all the wonderful images, including her new $2.70 collection of basic but very versatile digis. Any of these would look wonderful with die cuts and if you enter a project featuring a Phindy image, don't forget you can enter a second time this week.
I have used one of Phindy's new images called Garden Gnome and made my die cuts with both my Cricut and Spellbinders. Add a lot of distressing to some lovely papers, a big butterfly along with some pearls and you have a card. Sounds simple, so why do I take so long to make each card - hmmmm?
