Afternoon all.
Well the household is literally 'bracing' itself for tomorrow, as amongst other things the eldest is having a fixed brace fitted - and he (nor the rest of us) are not looking forward to it. His biggest problem is that he was told he wouldn't be able to eat for 4 hours, so he thinks he will die of starvation.
Aside from that, I have just started preparing my paper piecing class for next week, and thought I'd share the first card with you all. The stamp is by Wild Rose Studio, and just seemed ideal for the technique. The fake brads were made by cupping some circles cut with the 1/2in Woodware circle punch (the yellow one), and the backing paper is from Craft Creations.

  3. Hi Sharon, Love your card, the fake brads are a great idea. Re fixed brace, both mine had fixed braces recently, one last month and one last week, its not been too bad just needed nurofen for a couple of days. Funny my boy thought he would die of starvation too!! Karen xx
