It's my birthday next week and yesterday,whilst I was out,my son took in a delivery and left it in the hallway. When I returned I was horrified and gobsmacked. Now anyone who knows me knows that I dislike with a vengeance all things technical,Im scared I'm going to break it,I don't like instruction manuals,if something isn't simple I just won't contemplate it. On the other hand,my husband loves technical things,doesn't read instructions but plays around till he's learnt exactly how things work.
My Husband doesn't lay in,not even at weekends,when he wakes early he goes down stairs and station hops. The other day I came down to find him mesmerised by a craft channel,I'm sure it was a mistake as he doesn't "get" crafting " Have you seen these,they look so good"
My answer"I wouldn't be able to use it,it looks far too technical,would be a waste of money!"
Glad he didn't listen,how wrong was I! Now I know it's still a week till the day but I was told I might as well have it seeing as how I know what I've got! I didn't think I'd get time to post today,all I want to do now that I've put the washing on is play again. Here is the quickest of creations using my lovely,lovely new toy. I cut the large tag,distressed it and stamped the greeting all over before adding the other items. I stamped the words on rough paper first each time so that the words look slightly faded.
I placed the tag onto my folded card blank and trimmed off the edges to match the cut tag,I love the shadow of the letters. I can't believe how easy it was,I only watched a few minutes of the instruction DVD and just experimented from then on. I do think I'm going to have to curb my experimenting a bit as I'm in fear of being lost under a pile of off-cuts lol!
