Firstly, I want to thank everyone that left a message about the tutorials. I'm really pleased you are liking them. I wouldn't mind seeing some flowers that you make. If you want to share with me, you can send a picture to firstname.lastname@example.org I would love to see them. I will do the Sue Wilson Classic Rose as the next tutorial and will post it on Thursday.
My Niece & her fiance came over on Friday to come up with some ideas for their wedding invitations. I think they will look beautiful. She wants vintage/ rustic ones. I said I would do some samples and she can choose her favouite, then I have till mid January to make them.
Quick message for Denise & Steph. Is it the mobile you are having trouble with if so I have put a quick tutorial after the card, just how to make the mobile, not the whole card.
I think the blog for tomorrow is going to take a long time to do today (Monday), as I have to keep stopping for my old cat Summer, she is feeling very poorly today and has been sick numerous times, so after every clean up it's a walk in the garden to eat more grass. Good job it's not raining or I'll be the one out chewing the grass and feeding it to her. Summer, bless her can't walk too far but won't entertain one step outside when it has been raining.If we have had rain I have to carry Summer like a baby into the garden just so that she get's some fresh air, she purrs all the time you are holding her. Poor Summer is off again, be back soon.
Right I'm back! I have just had a really funny experience with our postman.OOooooerrr missus. I saw Jym ( the postie )coming up the steps to the mail box, we both waved at each other, and then the gas struts on my stupid chair decided to leak and I slowly slid down. He literally stopped to watch me slide down behind my storage boxes, I must have looked like that character Chad looking over the brick wall. I saw Jym smile, but I couldn't move for laughing, of all the times for it to happen. It happened yesterday too just as I was about to stick a snowflake on the background die. I thought when it happened yesterday it was a one off, but I think maybe it's time to get a new chair, but this one is so comfortable, I fall asleep in it all the time and wake up stupid o'clock in the morning! Poor Summer's off again. Be back soon. Lots of cuddles for Summer this afternoon me thinks.

You need these 2 dies to make the mobile
You need to cut them out 3 times.
Fold each one in half, embossed side inwards. you really don't have to score them they fold very easily.
On the deboss side place some glue along the edges and the dots.
Do the same to all 3 die cuts
You will end up with a 3 sided mobile
Cut the square edges off of the die, and decorate as much as you like. Just so long as there are equal flowers and leaves on each side.
Then use this die to cut the aperture out of your card. Just make sure that you cut the aperture straight as you mobile won't hang level. I hope this helps. If not I'm only a message away.
Hope this helps, if not let me know.
