Joy To The World Mini Background

                                                            Hello crafters!  This die is a bit different for me as it is the first mini background sentiment die that I have designed.  Use it with or without the frame as it is easily nipped away.  Make the frame edge whatever size you prefer as there is not a fixed cutting edge to the outside so the versatility is your choice.  Great for batch cards too!  If you are wanting to be included in this drawing, don't forget to leave a comment here!  The last post for today is coming your way in a few short hours at 6pm today.  Hope that you can join me!  All for now, Sue x

Hi again sue and lovely wilsonettes x
Wow sue I love this die too x as frances said the packaging doesn't show what fantastic dies you design x that's why I for one am truly grateful for your blog x the poinsettias look beautiful without distracting it from your sentiment background x absolutely stunning sue x
Lorraine and yvonne g I would really love membership but am thoroughly ashamed of my underhand tactics ! I would like it to be known that I am not a tell tale and any secrets revealed on this blog are safe with me ! And I am not now off to look at a certain cheesecake company website !

Lorraine Eastwood said...

Hello again Sue and her lovelies!

Another champion die that really grabs your attention with that gorgeous font. Loving the use of a mask and texture paste in the background, it add a further dimension to an already beautiful card-I agree, great for batch production and lovely accented with the poinsettias.
Where do you get all of your inspiration from, to produce so many diverse dies and coordinating EFs? It never ceases to amaze me the depth of your talents.
Enjoy the fruits of your labours Sue, you deserve every plaudit and morexxx
See you at six.

Crafty hugs,
