A beef.....I have been feeling mardy and put off card making and all because I have fallen out with M&S. I went to use a credit voucher and was told it had expired!!! I was not aware that they impose a time limit and have lost the best part of £60. Grrr - I think it absolutely wrong that this is the case - a credit voucher should last forever!
Sooo, I've told M&S to stick it, my custom has been transferred elsewhere.
Am I on my own with this thinking......or maybe it best you don't tell me, you might shoot down in flames, lol
A result...I am happy though that I have, at last, after 3 months managed to get my 82 yr old neighbour a Visa to visit Australia. The new rules decree that everyone over 75 have a health certificate at a cost of £350!!!! Thanks to her sister in Oz, after talks with immigration, (the site is so confusing) it is found she needed a different numbered visa for her trip of under 3 months. What a relief we haven't got to make the trek to Birmingham....yippppeee.
A card....for niece and hubby from her Mum & Dad.
Spellbinders Floral Ovals die - the largest is flat, the other two matted with foam tape.
I printed the sentiment and cut with middle size die then cut around it to fit as another layer.
Memory Box butterfly and Marianne Creatables for the flowers. This is a nice soft gold paper that was left over from the wedding invitations that I made for the couple last year. The wedding colours were green and gold. Must get myself in gear, gotta make two more.
I rubbed metallic gilding wax on the edges of the die cuts - funny stuff this - using fingers is the only way for me. I couldn't get a satisfactory result using a cloth as in the instructions cos it was going all bitty.
Nice effect in the end.
