Home is Where the Heart is - Dies to Die for DT card


Good Morning my lovely crafty friends.
I hope you are well, sending more hugs to those in need of them.

Thank you for your all your kind wishes. Emily had a wonderful birthday on Thursday and I am pleased to say that Holly did exceptionally well in her A Levels which means that she can go the the University of her choice which is a big relief. Yes, we are so proud of her.

Anyway, I have 2 cards to share today so I had better let get on with it!
First up is my DT card for Dies to Die for.
I was sent some gorgeous papers made by Simple Stories and decided to make a card using them without using any stamps. The papers have been cut with  Die-Namics Blueprints 12 and 13 and the beautiful flower is the wonderful Die-Namics Gerbera Daisy. I love this flower so you may be seeing a lot more of it in future!



Thank you for taking the time to stop and look at my first card on the day. I will be back later with my DT card for A Gem of a Challenge.
Bye for now
