Fifth Day of Christmas

Unfortunately my  LIM entry for this week's 'Twelve Days of Christmas' didn't quite go as planned! Not having any lords, ladies, pipers or drummer stamps I opted for 5 Gold Rings but couldn't find a suitable stamp - then I had a thought - I would use my circle punches and cut them from Brushed Gold cardstock. Once I had done this I stamped the baubles and sentiment in Versamark and embossed them in gold. I was just about to position my gold rings when it struck me that this could possibly be a One Layer week and, on looking again, found it was! What to do now? Well I used one of the punched rings as a template and drew around the inside with a gold marker pen. Hey presto a OLC, just a pity that my gold pen isn't very good so, after taking the photo, I glued the gold cardstock rings back in place!! (see below) Note to self - ALWAYS READ THE INSTRUCTIONS :0)

* Recently I have had a few people asking for instructions for things that I've shown on my blog and I am always happy to help. However if these requests come through the comment section I am not always able to find contact details. So, if you want to ask me anything, drop me an email and then I can reply!!! 
Have a great weekend

  1. I wrote a great long comment Margaret, using my iPhone and then lost it when it asked me to log into my Google account when I had finished... I hate it when that happens.
    The gist of what I said was that like you, I get carried away with the theme of a challenge often forgetting the one layer bit!
    You managed the challenge brilliantly!
    Well done you!
    Thanks so much
