Woohoo it's a Weekender :D

Hello there,

Just a quick shout out from me, I'm sat with my coffee ready to watch Create and Craft to see Leann Chiver's demo's with the brand new Die'sire Accordian die sets from Crafter's Companion

Here's another of my samples for the show:

I had the idea that these dies would be just perfect to send a picture journal card to someone who lives miles away, bringing families closer at Christmas!  I'd just love to see their face when they open it, we will be doing this again for our own Christmas cards :D

Here's what I used:
Style: Accordion Create a card

Die'sire Die’s used: Rectangle Accordion die with Fairy Lights overlay die
PLUS the inner scalloped edge die in the Accordion die set
Stamp set: Crafter's Companion Happy Holidays sentimental rubber stamp set
Cardstock: Crafter's Companion  Matt Black Card, Linen effect card
Collal All Purpose glue, Collal Tacky glue, Crafter's Companion red liner tape

Other bits: Red Pinflair Buff It, printer

A few more pics just coz I can lol

The pic's are of 2 of my children, and we had great fun in the garden messing around to get these pics!  Getting the sentiment held in a place we could see it in close up was hilarious lol

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you like this one as much as I do :D

Crafty hugs,
