Stretch Your Dies Day 6

Hello ...
This is my second post today ...  I would love it if you scrolled down to check out the post for

I'm just posting my card for Day 6 of the online class

Day 6 is about using your border dies in different ways ... The team really came up with some amazing samples ... Shaped cards, inlaid die technique and sponging using a border die cut as a template
I went with the latter using the Hillside Border dies by Lawn Fawn to create this cute card

The little elephant is a recent purchase ... he's from the Unforgettable stamp set by Wplus9 which I got from Make the Day Special - I just love this cute set

My sponging needs a little practice but I'm happy with how this turned out

I hope your day is A beautiful one

Thanks so much for stopping by

Good morning...
It's time for a new word prompt at 

This week Kirsty has picked the word for us it's

I've been a little too preoccupied with creating this week so I've been going through my photos to find something suitable ... 
The word Gift has so many meanings and looking through my archives I sort of realised that whilst I am not what I would call a gifted person (talent wise) I have been gifted...

My greatest gift -  The gift of motherhood without a doubt ... I only have one child but I am more than thankful

I've been gifted with having beautiful animals... there's nothing like the love of a dog

And looking at this photo I see so much more ... I have the gift of sight to enjoy the beauty of the forest... and my legs have carried me many miles walking my dogs and enabled me to gift back a little
by doing the Race for Life a number of times

I have the gift of somehow being accepted by animals that need help

Yes that's a real Coal Tit in my hand...

... And a fox cub that I found ... she was very sick but made a good recovery

I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with this week to fit the word gift

Link up your photos with us at 

Have a lovely Sunday
