First time for..

using a die cut sheet and card blanks. I sent for these dies...with 16 FREE card blanks during the summer and am slowly getting to use them.
The blanks are A5 but I have cut most of them into a 14.5cm square...isn't it interesting how our preferences change over the years.

My dear Mum has asked me do make her some special cards for her to send to some of her friends...and I think this will be one for her box. I haven't really sorted out how many cards I need myself yet. Last year I am sorry to say I ended up sending bought cards because of the horrendous postage costs to send handmade cards from Spain to the UK. However this year I am traveling over on the 30th November so I can take the important ones with me.

The bow was my practice one I did on an old scrap piece of has been sitting on my desk for weeks and I just had to use it....waste not, want not, ha ha.

Card Supplies:
Card blank from Hunkydory Crafts.
Greeting from Anita's.
Ribbon and layering from stash.
Snowflakes made using Woodware punches.
Bling from stash.

I would like to enter the following Challenges:
Anything Goes- Die Cuts/Punches.
