Friday in NY...

Happy Friday,

Well today should see us in the big apple, hopefully queuing for tickets for a musical on Times square!

Todays card is another demo from My C&C shows on Wednesday, I love the simplicity of this card and the fact it shows the different effects you can get from the classic Rose die set.  Now although we are away spending the first three days here in New York I was able schedule a raft of blog posts before we flew. Although they are very short there is a card or creation for every day ( I didn't want to lose my record of posting every day!)

  8. Stunning I missed this demo Can only find the Leonie prog Will look again Enjoy NY My daughter was there earlier in the year with her "girlies" celebrating their 30th birthdays (boy do I feel old!) and had a fab time Never been but it's on my bucket list

  9. Morning John,
    I loved this when you did the demo. Great little flowers.
    Have a great time in NY.

  10. Hello John, this is a really lovely card and watched you make it on tv, and was amazed the flowers are Sue's Classic roses. I am very envious of you in NY. I would love to go but hubby's not willin. Enjoy your trip.

  11. Eh up John
    It was a great demo and the ribbon threaded box is genius! If you can get into Serendipity at some point for a Hot Chocolate Fudge Sundae, made with 14 different types of chocolate,Yum!
    As you would say, enjoy!

  12. Good morning John,
    I hope that you enjoy your holiday and make the most of every different sight you see. I watched you do this card and box and loved the simplicity of it, but most of all i love all white cards. I love to make a box for my cards as well as it just says more than a beautiful card shoved into an envelope.
    Ros, do like my mum did and go yourself, don't wait around for hubby to move his comfy bum on the seat, get out there and enjoy the world. She went to Italy, Rome, America, Spain, Holland, Austria, Belgium, Germany to name but a few and she started her journeys when she 47 and she always made friends so what have you got to lose.
    Crafty hugs John, enjoy

  13. Watched your shows on C&C well done, I will certainly be keeping up with your blog. I am an avid CE fan along with my heroines Sue and Julia. Crafty Regards Julie Kay xxx

  14. You seem to have given us several variations of card today John, so I hope your posting record keeps going, you have done so well. Have a great time in the Big Apple, please take pics for us.

  15. Enjoy your holiday in my fine country! New York is so much fun. If you can you should visit M&J Trimming, it's 1008 6th Avenue between 37th and 38th Street. Any sort of ribbon, buttons, jewels and trimmings you could ever imaging, all in one place. It's heaven.

  16. Hi John
    I really hope that you both have a tremendous time in The Big Apple,
    I Loved this Card and Box when it was Demoed on Create and Craft some great ideas, John Thank for sharing, have a great time.

  18. Hello John, lovely card and box, the flowers are gorgeous. Hope you are both enjoying New York and manage to take in a show (or two)
    Take care, Brenda

  19. Beautiful card and box - no surprise. Just stunning!
    What is 'Pear PVA'? Cannot find it anywhere.
    Did you mean to say Pearl?

    I just contacted CE to see if they want a Distributor of Sue Wilson dies here in the USA? When I try to buy one of your suggested dies, there are none here.

    Thank you for sharing,
    New York

  23. Hi John
    Gorgeous card and box. I love the flowers and would not have recognised them as coming from the roses set. They look more like cherry blossom. Have fun in NY! Best wishes, Anne O

  24. Hi John Hope you are having a great time in the Big Apple. I went there for my 70th and had a wonderful time. This card is really lovely so simple and elegant Beryl xx

  25. Love this card John - I took the liberty of copying this design but, with cream card and gold glitter embossing powder, Sue poinsettia dies and made Christmas cards with it, looks fab!!!
