More John Next Door. . . . . . .

Good morning everybody. Hope you are well.

Thank you for your kind comments about the kidney scan. I should be relieved but knowing I've now got to have more tests etc to find out why my function has dropped, is not appealing. I don't think there are many parts of me that haven't been poked, prodded or manhandled during the last 14 months lol!!!

Welcome to Tracie. Thank you for pressing "follow" and joining our happy throng.......that's throng, not what you all first thought lol!!!

Anyhoo, I'm typing this on Saturday afternoon to schedule for Sunday and watching and listening to hailstones the size of marbles pelting the window. I could have sworn that it was know, Summer ?????
I was worried for Sammy, a little sparrow that comes and sits with us on the decking or helps Mr D with the gardening, as one of them hitting him would have given him one helluva headache. I was meant to live in a warmer climate.

Now, its back to John's last show samples. . . . . . . making way for some new ones on Tuesday perhaps ????? Shushhhhh, don't tell anyone!!!

Cream and black card
SB Ravenna die (beautiful set)
SB Classic Oval die
John Next Door Wave Duo Mask (used to emboss)
John Next Door Spring Flowers stamps
John Next Door Autumn Flowers stamps
Black Archival ink
Black pearlage

I do love this Ravenna set. Nice large dies as I think they are a Card Creator set.

Thank you for the anniversary wishes. Mr D said to say thank you too. We had already been out with Nesta the evening before so we will probably have a meal out this week.

Thank you, also, for your views on Windows 10. Haven't got the new laptop yet. I did upgrade the RAM on my current one myself but I wouldn't bother upgrading the Windows as it is too old and trying to update Internet Explorer a couple of years ago caused it to have a hissy fit.

Jan and Jennie, hope you're  both enjoying your holidays.
Myra, I think you may be teasing about Maureen after seeing her comment. I'd guess she thinks Windows 10 is a double glazing company lol!!!
Suzzie, thankfully its only an oldish combined printer, scanner, copier that's hooked up to the golden oldie so only about £40 (around $52) if we have to replace.
Jenny, you are now officially our techno expert lol!!!

Well, that's me for today. Enjoy your Sunday and I shall be back on Tuesday. . . . . . . can't think what may be happening then lol!!!

  5. Hi Ang, this card is just amazing, you certainly do John's range justice. I need to look for this die, it is beautiful. Have a great Sunday everyone. Bx

  6. Beautiful Ang Black and white monochrome is a favourite of mine and that die set is very pretty It reminds me of Art Deco but as you've shown can be used for other settings

  7. Lovely card again, Ang. The quilted frame is so effective.

  8. Hi Mrs D,I just love this card,I am always drawn to monochrome anyway but this is just beautiful. Hope you are as well as you can be and I hope Sammy avoided the marbles they usually manage to. Keep well Love Barbara D xx

  9. Hi Ang. love the card, you never disappoint. Looking forward to seeing your post on Tuesday. Keep Well

  10. Very nice "clean" looking card - sophisticated and elegant. I am liking the look of the SB Ravenna die,too. Thanks for sharing your idea.

  11. Hello Ang,
    Gorgeous card today, and the stamps are fab. I lost my marbles some time ago and wondered where they'd gone, obviously to your house!!
    I hope you are feeling much better and the latest tests are soon done and dusted.
    Myra is a little tinker, take no notice of what she says - I never do ha ha.
    Maureen x

  20. Hi Ang,
    what a very beautiful card.
    I love your wonderful design and the colours are so lovely.
    That SB die is wonderful and really lends itself to a very beautiful frame.
    Gorgeous stamped image inside your oval shape.
    I must confess I am no techno person, but hubby is and helps me a lot, but saying that he doesn't understand the blog, and that was all my own learning and doing.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  21. Beautiful samples Ang, love the mono. xxxx
