Faux Die Plate by Judy Jackson

Did you know that last week was Thanksgiving? But you probably don't know my hubby and I hosted 22 people for dinner that day and I had 5 overnight guests (which included our 3 precious little granddaughters which was fun!) and they were here for 3 nights.  So I had to roast and carve two turkeys and all the fixings. Nor do you know I had to create 22  place cards with stamping and coloring. Nor do you know that I planned and prepared 2 crafts for all of the kiddos after the Thanksgiving meal.  And last Friday was our twin granddaughter's 7th birthday -- at our house.  And they wanted a homemade board game made by Gramma - first grade teaching skills came to my rescue! So we had more guests for a meal and more cleanup to do, etc., etc.

All of that is to say, I am pretending this Thursday was my assigned day in November to post a card to this blog.  My life was crazy last week.  It was a fun week but crazy, none the less!

I love this technique!  When you look at this scan, you might think that the die cut is quite large - but nope it is not. It is not A2 size, not even close. It is quite fun to look at your dies in a whole new way for this technique. The Faux Die Plate technique is from the October/November 2013 issue of the Technique Junkie newsletter.

Then we have the lovely humming bird "dream" stamp which is from -- ta da!  the Technique Junkies stamp line! I have used that stamp a lot over the years when I acquired it from the former Stamp Camp company. 

I think the bird and the flowers go together wonderfully. And right now on this cold damp day, I wish I were able to look at a humming bird fluttering around some bright red flowers on  vine!

Here is wishing for a crafty, and snowless winter!
