Christmas Card number 15

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

Happy Friday! The weekend is almost here. We are heading off to a wedding early tomorrow morning and on Sunday we are visiting the Harry Potter studio tour, which is near where we will be staying. Two very exciting things to do. I won't be blogging or commenting much this weekend I know I am going to be very busy.

When I went to the Newbury Craft show, last weekend,  I had quite a long chat with John Lockwood he is becoming a  good friend. While we were talking he was using the new Snow Globe die set by Sue Wilson. I even helped him with a few things. I was so impressed with the dies and what he did with them I bought the Snow Globe die set and the Cottage Snow Globe scene. Today was my first opportunity to play with the dies.


This is an A5 card I don't often make these I do like may square cards. The backing paper was in my stash. 


This is the male deer from the Deer family die set that was released last year. 


This Season's Greeting die was also released last year. 


I did have fun putting the Snow Globe together. The treat cups make it so much easier to make a shaker card. I put Micro beads in mine. 


Look what I have treated myself to. I have been wanting to replace my Grand Calibur since the handle broke. I was able to pay for this with my earnings from card sales which is kind of appropriate. 


Here is is unpacked and I did use it today. I was impressed it is a very solid piece of kit. 


I have lots of ideas of how to use this die set so you will probably see it a lot more. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and that the weather is kind to all of us. 

Happy Crafting 

Hugs Jackie
