I shall have to work in silence soon... no I'm not in detention, but the piano tuner will be arriving... in fact I just heard the doorbell as I typed, he doesn't like any noise to distract him, I even had to put some WD40 on my husband's office chair as the squeaking put him off his work... and my husband does fidget!
Here is a little card for CAS-ual Friday's challenge this week which is to incorporate an arrow.
The sentiment was computer generated and the little bird (from Paper Smooches) was coloured with Copics.
The arrow was a tiny die-cut from my Cuttlebug Typewriter alphabet set of dies.
Speaking of dies, I got the bargain of the century at the Portsmouth craft show on Sunday.
I spotted this pack of dies.. two sets of alphabet dies... (the boxes are huge but the dies take very little space). The Merry set has both upper and lower case letters plus an ampersand, exclamation and question marks and a set of numbers. The Bright set is a mixture of trendy upper and lower case letters plus an ampersand, exclamation and question marks, inverted commas and a set of numbers.
It also has three triangles and three squares graduated in size to make different sized Christmas trees among other things.
The whole lot cost £15.
I looked the set up online when I got home to discover that originally it had retailed for $170.
These are cookie cutter dies, which means that they can be used to leave a letter shaped gap on a card and so are really versatile.
