And the winner is .....

Hi Everybody,

Thank you for all your lovely comments both about the holiday snaps and the new FF card.  It seems that many of you like blue.

But there can only be one winner of this particular card and that is you .....  

Thelma Welch 

I need you to send me your postal address as soon as you can so that I can get the card in the post to you straight away.  Email me  ...   christina@card-making-magic.com 

You will have  48 hours to claim it so please do so as the last card was not claimed,  and it is such a shame when other people would like to win it too.    

Some Answers ...

In the comments was one  from  Ann  Lauzon and she  asked me about a tutorial that I did  on how to make your images look as if  part of it is outside the die that you have used.

It is on the Spectrum Noir Blog page and here is the link for you  ... Thinking Outside the Box   the video is further down the page so scroll and you will find it.  I hope that is the one you meant.

To Marilyn who travels two hours to go to a card class at JGD Crafts each week   ... I will be there on September 13th as Janet has invited me down to do a Spectrum Noir workshop for her ladies and maybe you will be there too.

To the lady who wanted to know how to make the pearl sprays that I have in some of my cards ... there is a video on the way to show you and it will be with you soon.

And to someone else who asked me how do I emboss card  using a die without it cutting out the whole card ... again  a video is on the way to show that technique too.

I was hoping to get them done this week but to be honest although my blog posts have been going out regularly I have been quite poorly this week with a really bad chest infection.

But once I get back to speed all these things will be with you and I will of course add them to the blog once they are done

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  4. Good morning Christina,
    First well done Thelma, i know you will love your Christina masterpiece when you get it as they are stunning. Secondly, Christina, i know you want to get back and not disappoint all of us but your health is first. You probably have caught it because you came back to normal (cold wet and raining) from the beautiful weather you were lucky to have on your adventures, so we are here when you are well.
    Love and crafty hugs

  6. Christina,
    You've been running around a lot the past few weeks, and although it was a holiday, sometimes you need to come home to rest, and that is what you need, rest, and plenty of it. Chest infections are no easy matter, it can linger for weeks...do I sound like a Mother? Nonetheless, you get yourself all better so we can enjoy all your amazing artistic creations and videos. Congrats Thelma.

  7. Congrats to the winner...enjoy Christina's beautiful card.
