One Die - Two Ways

Happy Saturday!

Another week has gone by with lightening speed... Or maybe it's just that I'm old Lol!

We have surprise visitors from Cornwall - DH's cousin Peter and his lovely wife Angie called us on Thursday to say they were on their way. Peter is a big Everton football fan like my husband and they managed to get tickets for today's game so just like that they jumped in the car and came up. It's been more than 2 decades since they were here and there will be so much for them to see and reminisce about especially in the city centre which is vibrant and buzzing with hotels, restaurants, designer shops and so much more to see and do.

Yesterday was the worst day for driving, it rained heavily all day which of course was fine for me - It meant I got to hide away in my craft room and play instead of DH bugging me to go out and now I can catch up with you all whilst the visitors and DH go to the match.

I don't know about you, but I have lots of bits and backgrounds snippets that never get used. I tend to keep even tiny bits so I made a few cards using them up.
Here are two I made with the same die

I made that AI background ages ago and didn't really like the colours but I kept it and made 3 cards from it in the end. 
Here I used the die cut (AliExpress) in white over a piece of the AI background and added an old favourite of scoring lines on my card

And here I reversed it, cut the die from a piece of the AI and added a frame

... And a gold leaf

They're Autumnal looking but I love autumn and the glorious colours it brings. I don't own that many sentiment stamps but "Just a Note" is always a go to as I can write inside just what I want to say.

I'll share some more with you in a few days and wish all you have a lovely weekend

Bye for now
