Addicted to Dies!!!... Tattered lace and Tonic

Well the Mayday Bank hols have come and gone and we had a lovely long weekend, not doing much of anything, just pottering around the house on Saturday, A trip to the pub for some lemonade and maybe the odd Rum and coke with old friends and then a run over at the park for little Ruby Sunday.

Monday was quite ,we did however pop into our local Village Mayday Fete long enough to get a red ribbon in the fun dog show for 'best trick,' Ruby gave a fabulous performance with a routine of Sit, Stand, dead-dog , Roll over and to finish a 'High Five!!'  She also had fun playing on the Agility equipment and running the legs off a Border Collie that happened to catch her eye!! Then back home to chill in the garden in the afternoon.

I did however have a few hours spare over the weekend while hubby was cleaning the gutters and re-arranging his spanner collection in the garage/Mancave  (as menfolk do) to sneak upstairs to my craft-room and have some fun with my tatty lace dies,
 Here's the end result, hope you like them xx

This card has been created with the 'Moments in time' Die from the Tattered  lace range as a topper and mounted onto a paper doily from my stash and a tonic die cut ,  the sentiment and 'Nan' are also from tattered lace, all cut from the fabulous pastal Centura pearl card

The Romance card has been made using the 'Moments in time' die again in Silver mirror card and mounted onto a Tonic Heart die cut , The Champagne bottle came free with my Tatty lace magazine and the glasses are also from their range of fab dies as is the beautiful vintage car on the other card. 

The backing card is Snow white Centura Pearl and has been embossed with a Crafters Companion Rose Garden Embossalious folder and the patterned paper was from my stash again . 

With the country shows on the horizon I will be making lots of this style of card for my craft stall this summer in time for all the weddings and Anniversaries out there!!

Any regulars to my blog will know I have a serious addiction to dies!! and Tatty lace and Tonic are my top 2 favourites at the moment  so expect to see more from them very soon xx
