Another refugee found sheltering in the murky depths of my cupboard was this Tim Holtz fan die, I only bought it because it was on clearance for some ridiculous low price - bargain, right? Well no, not really, since I have owned it for about three years and this is the first time it has seen the light of day. I must stop doing this!
Anyway, here is a card, I thought it would make a good male birthday card, for those irritating males who don't golf, fish, garden - they really should take up a hobby just to make our lives easier. I cut it out of two Crate Paper papers, and paper pieced the fan pieces, then added glossy accents to the plain, aqua paper. I punched a couple of circles from silver card to add a bit of detail, and added another to the banner to link it up. The sentiment was done on the computer. The whole fan/die thing annoys me because I could have done something similar using my Explore without spending any pennies..hey ho, I must learn to focus
I had a real 'mooching around and achieving nothing' sort of day yesterday - all the ideas that were floating around in my head turned into something that a five year old could achieve, as soon as they were put onto paper. Back to the drawing board........at least the rejects have shown me the way to go, so hopefully today will be full of results
Have a great weekend, I'll be back tomorrow with a little giveaway x
