Totally Gorjuss 232 - Use die cuts.

Good morning everyone. Hope you are all well this Easter weekend. We don't normally have the holiday Monday unless it happens to fall on the first Monday in April. But of course I'm off anyway as I need to be off for a few weeks after my operation. That'll be 3 weeks on Monday and no I'm not bored being at home all day. I can always find something to do. Before my craft group last week I made myself sew up 6 jumper and hat sets that have been sitting finished for ages. I hate sewing up knitting. But I've been good I knitted another jumper and hat from some wool I had left from one set and I've got it sewn up already!! I'm also quite well on with an Aran cardigan - for me! I haven't knitted Aran for ages so I'm enjoying doing it.

Enough waffle though, I need to tell you about this week's challenge at Totally Gorjuss. This week we'd like to see die cuts on your cards. Easy isn't it? After all we all love our die cuts, don't we?

This week I've made another baby card and I've used one of my favourite dies. Isn't it sweet?

I used :-
Image and sentiment :- LOTV.
Die cut :- Memory Box.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Pearls :- Hobby House.
DP :- Forever Friends.
Glamour Dust.

Not sure what I'm going to do today. It's our crop day but my friend isn't going as it's her Mum's birthday and she's going to visit her. Since I'm relying on her to give me a lift at the moment I guess I'll be staying at home. My younger daughter might come to visit and she might even take me for a coffee so that would be nice. I'll be really glad when I can drive again. I don't like to keep asking other people to take me places even if it's only a 7 mile round trip to the village!

Have a nice weekend everyone and thanks for looking and for any comments you kindly leave if you have a minute to spare.
