Shannon

Hello all!  Day number four has begun!  We are starting out with the Shannon die from the Celtic Collection.  Don't you just love it when you can make an entire card with a single die!  Shannon corners, Shannon edges and Shannon focal element, done!  So quick and easy too!  While this die is more along the tag size, it is incredibly versatile in what it can do!  If you think this one might fit nicely into your crafting stock, why don't you just leave a comment.  You never know, someone has to win it and it could just be you!  The next die set in the collection will be along at noon today and it plays very nicely with others too! LOL  All for now, Sue x

Wow Sue now this looks totally different to the ornate delicate frames of yesterday but we've got use to you throwing in different but it's a great different especially to help with cards for men, but I see some fab samples coming through here and Facebook. I'm not talented enough to imagine what I could make with it but who can tell !?
May have to catch up later from here on as it's Lottie's party day so away for most of the afternoon. Looking forward so much to say four xxx

Good Morning Sue and all
The style on this die so different from others I have seen on your frames and tags and has a feel of Art deco to me . The card is stunning and I can see how you have snipped into the Shannon die to create a frame.
