perfect time to craft

Another month over and hopefully we are finally getting back to some form of normal. Here in England we have not been allowed to mix for months but that is starting to ease and I have finally had a cuppa with my mum. Yes we were sat in the garden under a brolly but a step forward is a step forward right. Anyway a new month means a new challenge over at Perfect Time To Craft Challenge Blog and as always the theme is anything goes.

Our sponsor this month is Fred She Said and here is the card I made 

There is a video up on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Once I had finished I cut a rectangle out using the nesting dies

The panel was then attached to an A6 Card Base giving dimension by adding foam tape to the cut out rectangle

  7. Hi Claire
    Love your card it’s gorgeously sweet
    Good that you can take little steps to get to normal again
    Here in the Netherlands the hospitals are crowded but we got a little less rules no evening clock and terrace open from 12.00 till 18.00 hr and we can shop again without having to make an appointment
    Be safe
    Hugs and Creativity

    1. Thank you. Every step is a step back to normality
