Home Again ...

Hi Everybody,

Here I am back home again safe and sound and after travelling home yesterday and unpacking I decided to take the rest of the day off to just relax.

As a result of that there was no Friday Freebie this week but I will be back to "Normal" for next week

This is another card from the shows done on Create and Craft this week and this uses the Dogwood

I hope I have given you a good representation of what the die sets can do and maybe some different way to use them as that are a good staple to keep in your crafting "Stash" whenever you feel the need for a floral display.

The  Ivy  that has been used on this card was not on the show  ... but it is one of the new dies from Spellbinders.

If you wanted to see the shows they can be seen here .... Create and Craft TV   This is the link to the TV schedule and all you need to do is look in the drop down box with the dates in it and find the show that you want to see.

It was the  .... Spellbinders 4 Day Deal ... from the 4th to the 7th August  and if you have a PC then you can watch ... wherever you are 

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  8. Hi Christina
    So pleased to know you are both home safe and sound hope you enjoyed your meal last night.
    After all your hard work and not just on C & C there was all the preparation you had to do before hand so please do take a well earned rest.
    Todays card as always is beautiful so fresh looking too.
    Enjoy your weekend both of you.

  9. Welcome home, Christina. I'm so glad that you had such a great time on C&C and how wonderful to have so many sell-outs! I love the ivy, I'm going to have to seek that one out. The dogwood is quite delicate and has nice simple lines. I love all the flower dies and I honestly can't pick a favourite and can see I'll have to put them on my wish list for the future :)

  10. Christina, you were fantastic on the show....It was a pleasure seeing you in action...
    the cards you made as sample were all lovely...
    I for sure loved the build the flower cards and dies...just like the one shown here on your blog...
    Rest up and relax....well done
