Good morning friends, Romans,bloggers. Hope this finds you happy and healthy.
Today the lovely John Lockwood is on Create and Craft showcasing his gorgeous new stamp sets and his first paper pad all themed around the 12 Days of Christmas (fortunately, he decided to go with the traditional song rather than having 3 French maids, 2 drunken uncles and an oven ready turkey lol!!!)
I was flattered and fortunate to be asked by John to make some samples for him again using 2 of the new sets and the papers and if they pass muster, hopefully they will feature on his shows today at 9am and 2pm.
I loved working with them and was only stopped from making even more by my problems with my Calibur.
Today's card is the first one I thought of when I saw this stamp set. No sentiment required, its just Partridge, Pear, Tree. . . . . .
Vintage gold card
Gold mirror card
John Lockwood Partridge in a Pear Tree stamp set
Couture Creations Swiss Dots embossing folder (I used the deboss side on display)
Presscut large square dies (like SB Grand Squares but with 24 dies in the set)
Black Archival ink pad
Teeny gold bling.
The apertures are quite deep. I know its a simple looking card but think it doesn't need anything else.
Hope you can all tune in and watch John as he will no doubt have lots of great demos.
I will be showing the samples I made over the next few posts, so dont say you haven't been warned hahaha!!!
Just when I thought it was safe to leave The Pond, I have to tell you, Lucky Ducky was in accident mode again on Tuesday. To be fair, this was not my fault.
As I walked behind the counter at work to set up the till, I slid across the floor on some greasy patch that was on the laminate floor. After a small pirouette and almost doing the splits (I think Torvill and Dean would have scored me 5.6 lol!!!) I only managed to bruise my hand on the cash box and pulled my ankle slightly.
Have no idea what the stuff on the floor was but I cleaned it up, though the skid marks remain. . . . . . . only on the floor I hasten to add hahaha!!!
Think I'll get me some of that bubble wrap Hazel suggested until my days resemble a Benny Hill sketch less than they do now lol!!!
