I love Fridays. No matter what sort of a week you've had you know you get to have a break from the norm over the weekend.
Over on the Daring Cardmakers, Dawn has set the challenge this week and she's asked what techniques you enjoy as a crafter and where you craft. This was tough as I enjoy many techniques and I can't really narrow it down to one but for this post I've chosen die cutting as I treated myself to a couple of new dies and used them on this creation.
I ordered the scrabble tile letters as soon as I saw them but had to wait a couple of weeks for them to come into stock and I can see them being very useful. The Mother's Day die was one I saw on a creation by a lady who came to see me at a demo last week. I really enjoy seeing other people's creations and sharing ideas.
I've used stitched dies both for the circle and the grass as well and used an embossing folder for the background, inking over it to add extra texture.
The wellington boot, sticker flowers, brads and papers are all from a Doodlebug kit I bought a long time ago. I'm a big fan of vibrant colours so this collection was ideal for me!
Before I go, I better answer the second question about where I craft. I really wish I could say I have a craft room but I can't. I craft on the dining room table. I need a table and structure to craft although I do all my die cutting on the floor. I make a lot of mess when I craft and needless to say I have to tidy up afterwards as best as I can.....
I'd love to see what your favourite techniques are and where you craft so please join in with the Challenge and you can find more inspiration from the Design Team HERE.
Have a lovely weekend and for those of you celebrating Mother's Day - enjoy!
