Happy Anniversary Mum & Dad

Well I dont know what is the matter with me but I forgot my Mum & Dads wedding anniversary. Oops sorry Mum & Dad.

Anyway I had to make a card for them even though it will be late.  They love to see my handmade cards and Mum has kept everyone I have ever sent them.

I decided to get my xpress machine working this afternoon and decided to mix a few of the  xcut dies.
Using the bored dies from the English die set  and the birds and bird house from the Mixed die set.  which is brand new out I thought they work perfectly together.

Don't forget to pop over to to see all the new dies that we have got coming out.

I really like this new die set, the little birds are so cute and I can see them working well  with a Christmas scene too so watch this spot.

Hope your having a lovely weekend crafty friends.

Roald Dhal

Today I would like to share with you a card I made last evening for my niece who will be 21 next week,

 I went away this weekend to stay with my in-laws in their holiday caravan and took a few crafty things with me.  My Mum-In-Law also likes to craft,  and we had such a lovely relaxing time.

I think the Rhold Dahl collection by docrafts shouts celebrations.  The decoupage and the papers are so vibrant and have so much detail.

Sorry the photo is not brilliant as it was taken in the caravan with a mobile phone camera.

If you would  like to see all of the  Rhoald Dhal  collection then visit

Hope you like it.
