Flying the Flag :-)

How are you all today ?? I hope you're all OK and looking forward to a nice weekend of crafting :-)

A lovely parcel arrived yesterday containing some of the BRAND NEW  Simon's Exclusive STAMPtember® dies so I just had to give them a run through my Big Shot !! :-)

Red White and Blue ,,, could be for the USA or the UK ! :-) Multinationally Patriotic !! haha 

After die cutting the Plane I squished it into a versacolor ink pad and then heat embossed with clear powder to give it a 'real' look, well it helps if you squint a bit while looking at it too :-D 

Thanks for looking ! :-)

Hi Lols what a great collection of dies, which you've put together to make a fab card - love it. The chevrons are like the old Air Mail envelopes. Thanks so much for joining us at the Ooh La La Challenge Blog, hope you'll play along again this Monday.
