Calm and Serene

Happy Monday Everyone,

After experiencing the weather in the UK last week our plain had to be rerouted due to the bad winds to a different airport I can now understand what everyone has been going through.  I hope the weather is calmer where you are and that things are  starting to calm a little.

Today's card was made to be calm and serene and a perfect antidote to the red fest of last week.  This is a very simple card made with a new First Edition Paper Pack 'Neroli' and plains navy & White cardstock.

I promise that Your Card will return next week as I haven't had time since my return from the U.K.



  1. Hi John. This is simply beautiful. Love the bird, the paper and the sentiment....umm think that means I love it all : ) Beautiful. Glad you got home in the end. We have had just over 24 hrs of no wind or rain and the sun was out nearly all day yesterday! I wish it was the same for everyone else but sadly know it's not : ( Hope it is very soon though. Take care.

  6. Hi John,
    A very unusual card for you, but so simple in it's design. Love the sentiment.

  10. Hi John,
    a very beautiful and as you say serene card. I am a great fan of birds, butterflies, dragonflies, and owls so this really appeals to me. Love that super paper too.

  11. Hello John
    A lovely stylish card. So simple to put the patterned paper behind the die cut and as a layer. I love that sentiment but didn't know who had said it. Thank you!

  12. Hola John
    Sorry I'm a day behind. Did extra hours at work yesterday and then saw Mr D off to Belfast for work.
    Definitely different for you but great, smashing, super!
    I love my Neroli pad but some of the FE pads may be being discontinued as we're not stocking some of them any more at work.
    Take care.
