Dandelion Meadow

Happy Thursday,

I used this stamp on Tuesdays card however I thought you would want to see what it actually looked like.  I know that when I reviewed Tuesdays post the centre panel looked even darker than I thought.  So I thought you would like to see what this stamp actually looks like!

I had a great day yesterday and learnt a lot form Julia and met some really nice ladies who made some fantastic cards!

Now whilst I was in the Factory shop I saw them preparing for a sale.  I have added the details below as it seems its going to be a mega sale!

  15. Morning John,
    A beautiful card, love it all. Sounds like you enjoyed your day with Julia yesterday.

  16. Good morning John,
    What a beautiful card today with both the colours and the design that you have chosen. I love how you have tinted the edges of the daisies to pick up some of the varigated colour in the meadow. The butterfly hovering waiting to go and land is just right some how. Thank you John for quite a CAS card today but with lovely colours of late autumn,
    crafty hugs

  17. Morning John, that pic of the dandelion background is a lot better than the darker one. As for the sale you tempted us with, do they sell online? I've never seen anything for sale on their website, only address of suppliers who may or may not have what you want, which makes me very frustrated.

  18. Beautiful card John, love the stamped image.

    \sadly live no where near the CE shop so wont be able to go lol!

    Love & Hugs
