Die-namic Creations in 2021

 Hello friends!

I am sharing the very last post of 2021! How did we get here? I am asking myself that question more and more.... Covid put the world to a stop in many ways and it forces us to stay home. More on that at the end of this post.

  Today's post is highlighting a few of my creations with dies.  Please join my on a trip down the memory lane.

This Spellbinders Hyacinth Die is definitely one of a kind. Never have i made a card with SO many small pieces of die.  With a little bit a lot of patience, the result sure paid off.

thank you

It was amazing to see a flower "bloom" right in front of your eyes!thank you

The white Hyacinth  can be just as captivating as the colored one.


The next one is all about landscape. With the right die, this card was super easy to piece together.

If you are stitched-challenged like me, this die will make you think you can be a stitching expert.thanks -004

 Like millions, I miss traveling and seeing friends and relatives. Despite the challenges we face, 2021 is a transitional year for my personal life.  These were the happenings: The graduation of David (UC San Diego) in Spring and relocating to the Bay area with his dream job, the passing of my father-in-law in July, the new home ownership of our daughter and son-in-law in Fall.... Dr. John's and my milestone birthdays. That is what 2021 is about for me. I am grateful.

I wish that 2022 will bring us all good health, peace and stress-free!

Thanks so much for stopping by! See you in 2022!
