New Workshop...

Happy Friday,

Thanx for the supportive comments yesterday the day, my first public workshop, went great I really loved doing it and hopefully the girls who attended enjoyed it too!  I have to say we were chatting away so much that the 2 hour session became nearly three! lol

Today's card is the First of my next Workshops as well as being the card I am demoing at Daisies For more details on the worship and demo's on Saturday click HERE. The next workshop day at CE towers will be on Thursday the 27th January and is part of a series of three during the day.  The full details along with the other 2 projects will be sent out by email form CE Towers later next week however I thought you might enjoy a sneak peak of the first.  To receive the details of Mine and the other talented people that hold workshops with Creative Expressions simply email and ask to be added to the mailing list.  If the current locations are too far then email me and I will see what I can do!

  1. Absolutely gorgeous card. Love the colours and the design. I'm so envious of the lucky people who can get to attend your workshops and be inspired. Unfortunately, I live in Belfast so it's just a little bit far to travel lol!

    I really appreciate your blog though and gets lots of lovely ideas and inspiration from it. Thanks so much John.

    Hugs Alice xx

    Thanks for sharing John

  7. Good morning John this card is gorgeous. It sounds like you had a brilliant time at the workshop yesterday. Have a wonderful day today. Hugs Jackie

  8. What a lovely card. Makes good use of the New York range.

  9. Wow, love the card, so glad you are back from your holidays, the cards since you have returned are fab. Keep them coming. xx

  10. Great design and colours I love all of Sue's dies and this latest release is lovely My mind keeps changing as to which dies to treat myself to

  11. Good morning John,
    What a beautiful card but another layer or so and it will need to go parcel force. The colours are really pretty together and something for the people that are not into pink, although for the world i can't think why they wouldn't be.
    I am glad that all the lucky people enjoyed your workshop yesterday but i don't think Central Scotland/Stirling would be close enough for you to pop up to although you could be like Sue and make a week of it as up here we have all the hills that you are missing down south.

  12. Morning John,
    A gorgeous card, love the aqua colour. Pleased to hear your workshop went well.

  13. Eh up John
    I love the mint. Very fresh and you know I love that stamp. Have to admit, Im not a fan of seam binding as Im more of ribbon gal.
    You'll be a wow at Daisys tomorrow as well. Do you still want me to scream and ask for your autograph when you arrive? Hahaha!
    Chat later.
