Simple Sunday...

Happy Sunday,

A simple card that, again I'm afraid, I demoed on Wednesday.  This one is easy to replicate in any colour combination and you don't have to use gilding flakes any glitter, glitter jewels or iced snow would work just as well!

After our4 days n NY today should find us joining a ship in New York harbour for a cruise.  We have had this planned since January it's the holiday we have been planning to take for a few years! It's really hard whilst away to add pictures of the trip to my blog however I have managed to add a few to Facebook so if you want to look on there just friend request me johnathan Lockwood is the Facebook name.

  12. I loved this card when you demo-ed it on C&C Perfect for my circle of friends and family I can't justify spending too much on crafty goodies but this set of dies are on my Need List Enjoy your cruise I don't FB much (long story & I can never get my head around changes etc) but will take a look later

  13. Hello John, this is a really elegant card, and just as valuable as a busy card. Very envious as just read you Re cruising. We do a leg of the world tour in the build up of the whole thing in about five years.
