 Morning everyone.

Well my die’s have come from Susan Tierney Cockburn / Spellbinders paper Arts.

Well what can I say they are absolutely gorgeous and the package is just beautiful.

I hope you enjoy what I have done the first card for you I have used the Oriental poppy Foilage and ladybugs.

With the Foilage there is so much in there the eucalyptus leaves then Rosemary the lady bugs etc.

Spellbinders I doing their best to get them over to the UK but with Covid 19 it is very hard at the moment to get products out of America into the UK, they are working as hard as they can so all I can say is save your pennies and go for the whole bundle when it comes out because it won’t be long and you will want it all.

Have a great weekend and will post others over the weekend
