My very best wishes ...

Hi Everybody,

This is the end of a very busy week for me and my apologies for no Friday Freebie this week.

But today I have had a lovely "Workshop" with Spectrum Noir pens and pencils in Bristol and the ladies in the class made me feel really welcome.

Tomorrow I head for home and I am looking forward to sleeping in my own bed.

I have a mountain of washing to do ... and I hate with a vengeance ... Ironing  ... any volunteers ????

So this card  uses the Bow Couture from the Spellbinders Victorian Collection and it sends all my best wishes to every one who has supported me over the last few weeks ... watched the shows ... emailed in to the shows ... or written to me via another medium

Many thanks especially if you purchased the whole collection to make the dies a complete sell out in the first two days and a runaway success

My very best to all the ladies who have attended both of the workshops that I have done.

I will be home tomorrow and hopefully back to normal for a little while and looking forward to my Wednesday Class with the lovely Brenda and Mary.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  17. Good morning Christina, congratulations on a very successful week on C&C, who said retirement was having plenty of time on your hands? Such a pretty card in it's simplicity today.

  18. Hi Christina
    Glad everything went well. Hope you had good night's sleep in your own bed. Love the card - really elegant.
    Love & best wishes

  19. It is we who should be thanking you for all of the lovely ideas and inspiration that you share with us! I'm so glad that your week was a big success. I'll be looking for some of those new sets when they are available in the US. BethAnn M.

  20. Oooooh what a very pretty card, love that die you have used. I am not going to volunteer to do your ironing, hate ironing, I tend to buy wash and wear these days. BUT I do have some things that I iron. Enjoy your own bed, a lot of us know there is no place like your own bed for a restful sleep.

  21. Iron! isn't that one of those four letter words. HA HA. My bro has to spend nights out of town for work and when he posts how nice it is to be sleeping in his own bed, I ask him, whose bed have you been sleeping in anyway. He gets a kick out of it. Your card, as always, is beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

  22. Lovely card Christina! You have been very busy haven't you, wish I could help with the ironing but I live much too fast away :O

  23. Hi Christina have thoroughly enjoyed the shows I managed to see, your demonstrations were fantastic and your cards were lovely. It was very inspirational to watch you and I do enjoy your YouTube tutorials. Hope to hear very soon from you and have a good rest xx

  24. I love this card. Adding the extra edging to the patterned die cuts made it extra special.

  25. I love this card, simple looking and we all know better, and so fresh blue and white is always a lovely mix. Loved the shows, I think I saw nearly all of them.

  26. Morning Christina,
    Lovely card, simple and elegant. I'm with you on the ironing I too hate the job.

  27. Hi Christina welcome back and a lovely card today. Beryl xx

  28. Hi Christina, such a lovely card, I specially love the bow! So pleased that all went well with the C&C shows, and with the sell outs! Well done you! Have a well deserved rest now! If I lived nearer ... I would help out with the ironing, sorry ;)!

  30. Christina,
