Mr. and Mrs. Snowman!

Good Evening Friends, I hope you are well and have had a good day what, ever you've been doing.
Aren't the days drawing in, it's almost dark here and it's only 7.30, I would say the Autumn is well and truly here.

Thank you all for the lovely comments on my last card, so pleased you liked it.  I'm still sticking the icicles on it though, I find a few lying on the table and have to get the glue out again, I now remember why I don't use them all that much, just too awkward to get them to stick on and stay.

Alistair and Ken  returned yesterday having really enjoyed themselves, even although it was hard going as there was just the two of them. They enjoyed their curry when they stopped in Kirkintilloch the first evening and Alistair was able to meet up with is old school friend for the evening.   It's good to have him back.

Just a short post tonight, nothing much to report, it's been a quiet day really for me, a little bit of crafting and some ironing.  Here is my offering for today,

I decided to try my hand at a crossover card, I've seen so many of you making them and I think they are so lovely and different.  So here is my first attempt, not bad really except it was meant to be crossed at both sides, and even going on You Tube to watch a tutorial, I still managed to cut with the pointy bits top and bottom, if that makes sense.  Hence just the one crossover. I'll get better.

The image I was given by one of my crafty friends the other year, I don't know the make.It was already coloured.
SB Christmas Embossing Floder
DI in Dusty Concord
Core'dinations  Purple Card
Papermania Paper, and Glitter Card again from last year
MB Snowflake Corner and Frosty Border
Hobby Craft gold lace
The Ribbon Girl Dazzler
Dovecraft Purple Gems
Creative Expressions Glitter Jewels Snow

That's all from me tonight, enjoy your evening, it's back to the crafting table for me, I've just heard football on the tv.

See you soon, Hugs Kate x

Fabulous image Kate, and your card is great whether you have one crossover or two!

I use two 6 x 6 inch cards. If you lay your two cards together on the desk side by side, with the cards opening in the middle, (the one on the right will be back to front) before you stick them together, you can then see exactly which
diagonals you need to trim off. You can the stick the backs together and start the embellishing process. Once you have done it once it makes much more sense. Have fun. Christine xx

hi Kate I do a cross over same as Christine, to stick fine die cuts, I use a fine nozzle, on a small bottle of PVA glue, or you can put a blob on something and use a tooth pick. hope this helps.
