Scrabble - ing about

Hi Crafty Friends

I had two birthday cards to do this week, so I thought I'd have a go with one of my new masks. I'm not sure what I'm doing with them, so it's pretty basic, but I enjoyed the technique and am hoping to improve

Then there was the annual 'issue' of my brother's card, which should be like him: cool, understated and witty. Well, I can't manage that so I made one based on our Scrabble marathon when he visited. I photographed my ancient Scrabble board, recoloured it, and then spent ages stamping and cutting out all the tiles. I don't know what possessed me to make a letter rack, because then I had to make a box for it. Hope it's not too squashed in the post.

Happy crafting

Hi Crafty Friends
Here's my latest make for RWS, 3 of a kind challenge. This month the 3 things are brown, numbers and die-cuts. I up-cycled a Pringles tube and made a gift box. These are a great size for loads of different gifts - I'm aiming to make lots before Christmas.

And here's the tag - some of my friends will be 60 this year, so one of their pressies will fit it.
