What a lovely day yesterday, I had a great day with a friend and it was lovely to be able to go out without a rain coat on, Had a lovely meal out and treated myself to some flowers, I always used to have flowers but have not brought any for ages,     

I sometimes wish I had not put all the dies onto magnetic sheets as now I do not know who produced them,  The same with the embossing folders I have them all in a box and not kept them in the packages so again no idea who produced them,     


Materials used for this card are, 
  • 21 x 15 cm card blank and envelope,
  • 10.5 x 10 x5 cm white card stock,
  • Embossing folder, 
  • Two cutting dies, 
  • clear stamp sentiment, [Free with a magazine, 
  • Bright orange, honeycomb, salmon pink, rose pink, Cinnamon, mint green Promakers,

Challenges I will enter this card for are, 
  1. Iinternational Art & soul. #28  Emboss and use a die, 
  2. HIMCR #343 Super Scrap Saturday, 
  3. Pixie's Crafty Workshop, Challenge  # 320, 
  4. Use your Stuff  Challenge #303 - Use a die cut, 



  1. I wondered where you were yesterday, I hope you enjoyed your lunch and continue to enjoy your flowers too

    Do your embossing folders not have manufacturers names on them? You could write die details on paper and then place the die over the top on the magnetic sheet - might help you to remember the details - just a thought, though too late for the existing.
    Cool card, good luck with your challenges entered

    Happy WOYWW


  2. Gorgeous card Lilian and I'm delighted to see you in the Playground! The whole design is so fresh and reminds me of Spring.

    As Kathy says, too late perhaps for existing dies and folders - but I write the names of embossing folders on the outside of the folder itself with a permanant marker. The markers does tend to begin to rub off with use but it's easy to write over it again. I snip the little images off the packets that most dies come in and stick those to sheets of card in the front of the folders of magnetic sheets. In the great scheme of things - if the dies and folders are giving you pleasure - then don't worry if you can't name them. At least it'll stop me from running off and buying the same.
