The other half of my desk contains these- I decided, as you can see in the picture, to cut out a couple of the images with Hexagon dies- the Crealies XXL ones. I used the largest die to cut them out, then decided I needed to cut some hexagon shaped cards to use them on.
Hence the templates on my desk, so I can just draw around and cut to size the relevant card base. For how often I'm likely to do that, I wasn't going to the expense of even larger dies.
Speaking of dies, Angela Radford, you naughty little enabler you!
I saw some cards Angela had made with this die, and decided I NEEDED it!
I'll be doing a post with the cards I've been making, but thought I'd show you these. Some old friends I haven't played with for a while.
Encore Metallic Pigment ink pads. I got them out to use for the stamping, so I could heat emboss. I bought these at least 10 years ago, when I first got into stamping, and everything was heat embossed. And they are as juicy now as when I bought them! Excellent value, they were.
All those flowers I punched out a couple of weeks ago? They were for this canvas Calendar I made for a FB friend, Erika. (Full post below this one.)Who, all being well, is coming to the crop. As are we now,
My Colorectal surgeon we saw just over a week ago, said he'd try chasing up my appointments. Result? I have one today at 9.30, a Nuclear Lung Scan. You have to breathe in a radioactive gas, which shows how your lungs are absorbing oxygen, then they inject you with a radioactive dye, which shows them what the blood supply to your lungs is. Then on Friday, I have a CT scan, so he can have an up to date image. Then on the 28th, I have the other Lung Function test. So I'm good to go for the crop! Looks to me that it's unlikely I'll get the surgery before Christmas, to be honest.
Said to Doug earlier, I'm in that weird place- on one hand, I want them to hurry up and get it done, on the other hand, the longer it takes, the better.
So I'll be around later to visit, after we get back. Being done at a Birmingham hospital,as it's a specialised test.
