Im Listening!

Happy Sunday,

Just a quick one last night of the play was rather taxing lol and despite my reservations I thought I should share a couple of pictures!

  There is me in costume, one of Stephanie who plays Sweet Charity (and sings like an angel) and me at rehearsals!  The other one is from the play tonight, Sweet Charity & Oscar meeting whilst trapped in a lift!  as you can tell I (Oscar) am a little scared as I am trapped in a lift with a beautiful woman!

You may notice that this card looks familiar well i did post it originally HERE however the general feeling was that the ribbon strip was too wide and heavy.  Therefore I took it back and whilst I love the die cuts down the side I thought I should try again with this one.  Here is the version where, hopefully, i showed that I listened and made changes.

Feedback is the main reason I started my blog and I genuinely value your opinion we can all improve and it is only through suggestions, comments and criticism ( and you guys frame everything you say so beautifully!)  that we can learn and grow!



  1. Pics from play look fab. card gorgeous as per, xxx

  2. Ah John I wish I could have been there, you look great. I look forward to reading the review in the local paper.I´m sure it was a great success.
    Sheer genius again. Love the 3 square dies. It looks a totally different card and great for male or female.
    Try and have a day off today or are you carrying on packing?
    Take care. Love Val x

  3. Great photos of the play. Love the card-very useful design.


  4. Hola John
    Love the original card but the ribbon was wide. Love this version too, which makes you take in the whole card.
    Don't you look handsome in that hat! They're going to miss you!
    Happy packing.

  6. Morning John,
    Love the changed card, great photos too.

  7. Hi John,
    Thanks for showing us the great photos of the look very dapper in blue.
    I agree the narrower strip does look better and it's a great card.

    Love Sheila xx

  8. You buff up well in costume John - and look suitably disturbed at being trapped in the lift! The card is def. an improvement!

  9. "Grate works" John, lovely card and photos. Its a bright and sunny day here today so the weather is preceding your arrival. Wonder how many things you will find when packing that you had forgotten you had bought!! best wishes Jackie

  10. Hi John, great phots. Love the card.

  11. Thanks for sharing your piccys - and hopefully you had a brilliant final night - I luv the card and like you say we are always open to learn new things - I think it is very unusual in its layout and like someone has already said ideal for male or female xx GailT xx

  12. I agree with a previous statement you DO buff up well.
    Lovely pics, Great card, keep up the good work.

  13. looking well in costume ,this card is gorgeous and I this this version is nicer ,like the little border and the sentiment .Laura O

  14. Hi John. Thanks for sharing the pics. You look very convincing as a frightened man : ) I really like the change you have made to the card, I find my eyes take it all in now rather than being only drawn to the wide bow. Some people get very upset by constructive criticism but I also find it really helpful, you can learn so much from another persons views can't you. And at the end of the day it is your card and you don't have to listen to anyone else if you don't want to, do you! I must say though, I hardly ever feel the need to say anything other than how much I love your cards etc. as I love your style : ) Take care.

  15. Ditto, ditto, ditto to all of the above comments. Fab photos from the play, and I have to say that my favourite card is the second one. Take care

  16. You're a very well rounded individual John. Actor, chef, incredible crafter, great next door neighbor and I can't wait to find out more facets of you. I look forward to every one of your posts. I thank you very much for all your sharing !!! I know it's a lot of work. If you ever move to the USA, I'd LOVE to be your next door neighbor !!!
