Good morning one an all. Hope you are all fab and funky.
Welcome to another kind follower. Once again, either blogger wont reveal who you are or you're remaining anonymous. Either way, thank you for joining our merry band.
I have a day off today after covering my boss this week hurrah!!! I really am in need of it.
I shall spend part of it watching Hochanda to see what its like. . . . . . . remember folks that John is on at 8pm, I believe but he will be on at 12 as the channel goes live. Will be interesting to see what the demo/sales pitch ratio is like and, of course the postage.
Val, its available on the internet, as far as I know, if you cant get it on the telly.
Now, today's card is another from John's C&C shows and I have struggled to capture the glory of gilding on my camera. Trying to balance the lighting with mirror card and gilding flakes was like juggling treacle lol!!!
It was the first card I made with John's Christmas stamps. As soon as I saw this stamp, I knew I had to gild it.
Gold mirror card
Vintage gold card
John Lockwood Partridge in a Pear Tree stamp set
Gold gilding flakes
Ranger sticky embossing powder
Black archival ink
Hougie Board (for the score lines)
Teeny gold bling
Well, at least I have a bit of a head start with the Christmas cards now lol!!
A few more of the samples to go but you will get a reprieve on my next post which is my next DT post for House of Cards so no hint of anything frosty or festive on that one.
Lesley, hope your stamps have arrived now so you can have a play.
Jackie, hopefully your workshop has been rescheduled. . . . . .unless, its live on TV lol?
PharmacyMichele, hear hear!
Karen, I think its on Freeview for about 20 hours per day.
Maureen, the way I've been lately, if I got on a soapbox, I'd probably fall off, hahaha!!!
Enjoy your Thursday and Hochanda (sounds like a sneeze lol!!!) folks and play nicely.
