Another new die set

Good afternoon everyone, I hope all is well in your world.
Well, I got on the bus on Saturday and off I went to Derby bus station, with the intention of getting on the first bus to leave there, which turned out to be heading out to Belper via lots of little villages. I had a lovely ride and although it was cold, the sun was shining beautifully. I'm afraid I didn't take any photographs at all as I couldn't manage to walk as far as the river gardens, but I did enjoy doing a bit of shopping before going into George's Tradition for my pensioner special lunch of their delicious fish and chips, bread and butter and a pot of tea, (I chose not to have the mushy peas) all for under a fiver. Then another little stroll and hopped on a bus for a more direct route home. A thoroughly enjoyable day, I must use my bus pass more often :o)
Anyhow, on to my card for today!


A very simple card really, I just used every die in my new Anja Squares set from Marianne. I cut them alternately from white and yellow card and layered them onto the 6x6 card (which I had folded and cut) with foam squares :o)

Sounds like you had a fabulous day. Sometimes a day like that is more energizing than anything else.
Your card makes me think of a lovely old fashioned snuggly quilt.

This is beautiful. I honestly don't quite understand how you were able to make this lovely pattern even though I read your post. I closed my eyes and tried to envision taking the bus and having the fish and chips lunch with you...chilly and all. Leaving the camera at home didn't hurt a bit..haha

Hi Jackie, lovely card - those dies are so beautiful. Even before I had a bus pass I used to do exactly what you did - I called them my little adventures because it was fun to hop on a bus not knowing exactly where I would end up :) Elizabeth xx
