Good morning all you lovely folk, how's it hanging today? A spring in your step and happiness in your heart, I hope.
Well..............in the words of the great Brucie, didn't he do well (I can hear you all trying to do the impression lol!!!) John was fabulous ont telly and soon got into his crafting stride. So chuffed for him.
I had to watch on that app thingy and the picture quality isn't great (like watching through vellum lol!)
I met up with John yesterday morning as Julia Watts was demoing at my local craft shop so we met up for a chat.
Have to say, Julia seemed very nice as I managed to have a chat with her before the audience arrived. She had some lovely samples.
One of the ladies got all excited when she found out John was coming along (don't worry, no underwear was thrown lol!!!) and another recognised him when he came in so that's 3 of us in the Warwickshire Branch of the JND Fan Club hahaha!!!
Before I forget, hello and thank you Sandy, Kvencel and Marian. Hope you can pop by again soon.
Also, I'm glad my destructions on John's card made sense. I know they were more Blue Peter than Create and Craft hahaha!
And, with regard to my last card the roses don't take too long. I use a lower GSM card so they are not too stiff, which means I can cut 2 or 3 at a time. They then just take me about a minute each to roll, tweak and glue, I have invested in a little glue gun which speeds up the process too.
Now, back to today's offering. Part 4 of my CEDT application. One of the required subjects was "Memories of Summer" and this was my interpretation.
I know in this country, we have to have a good memory to remember Summer lol!, but my first thought was "flowers" so that was what I went with.
Lilac PMD card
Pink PMD card
SB Scalloped Ovals
SB Fancy Lattice
SB Botanical Swirls and Accents (Fuchsia leaves)
HC Delicate Asters
Britannia Medium Rose die (for fuchsias)
Tonic and Docrafts flower punches
Card-io English Rose and Mum's Garden Majestix stamp sets
CE sentiment stamp
Black archival ink
Paper twine and seed beads (for stamens and seed pods on fuchsias)
CE white silky crush ribbon
Gosh, what a list lol!!!
I just wanted to make it look like a flower adorned trellis with the stamping forming a floral backdrop. The greens are also more sage in real life.
I know it may be a bit of a Marmite card and it won't be everyone's cup of Typhoo (and no, today's post is not being sponsored by Tesco lol!!!) but I really enjoyed making it.
Well, that's me for today. Enjoy your Sunday and as always, be good!
Ps. . . . . Norah, you've given me a bit of an idea chuck. Thanks for that. Stay tuned!
Pps. . . . Ita dear. Glad I could help with the GC handle but not sure I'm best to advise on your treatment. Best to be guided by your doctor and your family honey.We dont want you back where you were last year.
