What a lucky month this July is turning out to be for me. Not only have I become a grandmother for the first time but on returning home from a trip into town on Friday, I found a card from Fed-Ex through the door to say they had left a parcel with my neighbour. At the time my neighbour had gone out so I was puzzled as to what it could be. Hubby had not ordered anything, my son said he hadn't either and I wasn't expecting anything. So when the neighbour returned she handed me a very heavy parcel. I was now even more puzzled as I knew that anything I had have ordered and forgotten about would not have weighed this much. Then I spotted Tonic on the box and the word Tangerine, now I was worried. Had I accidentally pressed buy while I was looking at this on a website. No, I couldn't have. Then when I opened it there was a lovely letter inside from the wonderful people at Tonic Studios. It seems they had decided that a handful of people were going to receive a Random Act Of Craftiness and I was one of the lucky people who had been picked (hubby says that my smile was getting bigger as I read down the letter). In the box there was the cutting machine and plates (all different colours), orange for cutting, green for embossing and pink for embossing folders with a white top plate and last but not least was a lovely orange carry case to store the machine in. I been using it today to try different dies and it cuts beautifully. The only dies that it won't cut are the thick Sissix dies. A most generous Random Act of Craftiness I'm sure that you'll agree with me.
Anyway now onto my card for today, this is for the CD Sunday challenge at the moment which is Add A Stamped Image. For no other reason than the CD and stamps were sitting on my worktop when I made the card I have used Crafters Companion's Nordic Christmas for this card. It's a 5x5 white card base. 2 different backing papers matted onto silver mirri card and silver ribbon wrapped around them. The stamped image was coloured with spectrum noir pens and fussy cut before sticking to the card with glue gel. The sentiment is also from the stamp set. Now that I've made a start on my Christmas card I really must make a few more.
If you've made it this far down my post, Thank You for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
