Embossed and die cut cards

 
Is anyone getting problems adding pictures onto their blog? I have had to use a friends computer, every time I try to upload I get a resumables message and it will not allow you to go any further and put pictures on. Apparently lots of people are having the same problems, it is something to do with Google wanting everyone to upgrade to google chrome.
 
Anyway back to card making! These are cards made using my Grand Calibur machine.
 
 
 
 
The first one I have used the Tattered Lace Studley die in the middle and used Tattered Lace spring flowers corners for the embossed background

This one I embossed the Studley die, four times and cut it in to pieces, joining them altogether to make a circle.

knitted and embroidered doorstop

This is my finished doorstop, the pattern can be found on the age UK website.
As you can see I have decorated the house with embroidered flowers. The doorstop is weighted down with a bag of rice covered in wadding.
