I decided it was time to play with the new dies I bought from AliExpress.  I really liked the diagonal die that I bought and thought it would be really versatile.  I found out that I was right and boy, is it fun to play with.  I made a set of cards using the die in three different ways on cards.  I could have used them a fourth way, but ran out of the will to craft after making a shaker card with it.  I’m not sure why I think I can make shaker cards with little glass beads.  They always make me look foolish as they go everywhere.  Today was no exception.  I was trying to pour a small amount of beads into each of the little diagonal lines.  I know, the lines were not very large, but I used a paper funnel so of course, that should have worked.  Sure.  I poured beads EVERYWHERE!  Probably a thousand little beads scattering all over my desk, and onto the floor.  How many ended up in the card?  Not as many as I would have hoped.  It was another “I Love Lucy” moment for me, and I’m sorry to say that I’m having Rich delete it from the video because I said some things that were not fit for YouTube.  Ok, not fit for my version of YouTube.  Others would probably be fine with the things I said, but I don’t want little kids to see me swearing on YouTube.

I’ll be finding those beads forever.  The card is cute and I’m happy I made it, but I’m not happy that I just got up and left the mess once I finished the card.  It was one of those days where I would say I took a beating on the crafty front and just threw in the towel.  To my credit, I did finish the card, when I easily could have scrapped it and then I lost the will to go on. haha.
