Cherish The Moment-Tonic Studios

Hi Everybody,

Todays card created with a beautiful Tonic die and this one is called Cherish the Moment  and it comes in four parts

It is featured in a video that is "Live" on YouTube   today so I hope you will pop over there and view it.

I have given you two variations with the same die but the larger one uses some beautiful flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts

The lace is also from WOC and I think it adds a really feminine touch to any card.  I added some trimmed lace as leaves with the flowers on the left

And rather than throw away the bit that I trimmed off the lace I added them into the top right and bottom left corners with a little diamante centre.

My blog posts for the rest of this week will all be scheduled because today I am flying off to Portugal with my youngest daughter and her Granddaughter the wonderful Isabella (My Great Granddaughter)

We thought it would be good fun for the three generations to have a girly week away before Isabella starts school in September.  A week with a four year old should be fun (????) and I will take some photos while we are away.

So I hope you enjoy the blog in my absence and I have lots more planned when I get back

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. Beautiful feminine card, love the design and gorgeous flowers and lace. Have a fabulous holiday. Hugs Jennifer xx

  2. Always enjoy your videos, Christina. Today's video is no exception and getting to see you create two cards definitely inspires. Both cards are beautiful and I like that you show an easier card and one more complicated card using the same dies.

  11. Morning, Christina,
    What a pretty die from Tonic still seems strange to watch you use any die that isn't Spellbinders. I do like Tonic, like Spellbinders, they are always quality dies and this new one is a winner. I'm off to watch the video now. Have a peaceful flight, it's not too long for a certain young Miss to get bored...unlike the last time I went to Sydney and had a kid in front of me who kept throwing themselves against the back or their seat all the way to Hong Kong!! Have a great time in Portugal and I hope the weather there is significantly better than we're getting right now.
