To die cut...or not! (Edited)

I went to the craft night last Tuesday and was really disappointed to find that we would be working with die cuts. Even though I have a 'bug' I tend to use it for everything but die cutting!
This card is not like anything I would normally make but once I started it I actually enjoyed it! Sally who owns the shop we were in was lovely and went out of her way to make me and Maggie...the 'new' girls feel at home. June who was doing the demonstrating was really funny and at one point we had to ask her to stop telling jokes as none of us could concentrate for laughing!!
We also made a car card but can't show it in case hubby pops on here!
Anyway Maggie and I started chatting and she asked where we had moved from. You are not going to believe this...but she had lived in Gibraltar in the 1970's with her husband and children...and they lived in the next street to where I lived 2 months ago!! How spooky is that! We are getting together on Monday for a crafting session and to swop photos of Gib!
We are off out tonight to some friends for a Mexican going to have to be good though as its now 12lbs I have lost and I don't want to ruin it!!

Just had to add that I have just had the phonecall I have been waiting all week to hear. My friend Bev had major surgery on Friday and even though I've spoken to her hubby every night its still been a worry. Just spoken to Bev and she sounded amazing. I am not religious...but thank God she is ok,x
Bye for now,

Fab card Emma. Sounds like a great place you craft at, wish there was somewhere like that here. I was beginning to feel a bit isolated but blogging sure solves that problem and helps you when you lose your mojo!

It's a brill card, I started my cardmaking life with peel offs and die cuts, then I was introduced to stamping and that's where my passion lies. Still think die cut flowers can look great though :o)
