New Year Crafting

Hi Crafty Friends

And a belated happy New Year.
We started up the club again last week, and I - like a lot of other bloggers I've seen- went for a spring like green and yellow combo as a complete change from the Christmas colours we've been doing for ages.
I've been buying loads of cheap as chips dies from China and had a lot of fun using as many as poss. I must say when I tried them myself they worked fine, but the Tuesday group had some trouble with them. I gave them (the dies!) another coating of tumble dryer sheet and they were better on Wednesday. Anyhow, enough of the die review, here's what we made

This is a small DL size. I found a discount store selling packs of Christmas cards incredibly cheaply, so I bought a large stash just for the envelopes. It's a size I really like and good for batch makes when you're in a hurry.
All the dies you can see are nameless from China.
I made the script paper (in the watch) on the computer; it reads 'time to celebrate'
The flourishes are the bits left from a Christmas bauble die, so the Wednesday group who had less trouble with the dies, had time for a quick bonus make, using the left over bauble

Happy Crafting
