November Review...

Happy Tuesday,

Hope you all ready for a new year starting in a couple of days?  I can't believe how quickly 2014 has gone nor how much has changed for me.

A demo card that didn't get shown!  I had mixed the products form one show and the dies from another so wasn't able to do this demo.  It looks a complex technique but really isn't.  Hopefully next year I can show something similar!

A simple white card that I did a demo of on C&C however I just love the simplicity and thought it deserved another outing!
Finally a card that I'm not sure got shown!  This was made for the design team for Creative Expressions however as it was project 5 and there were only 4 weeks in November I think this may have missed the boat (if i'm wrong please let me know)

The mixture of the black and the detail gold embossing  just thrilled me to be honest.  Not your traditional card however the partridge in a pear tree  in one of my fave christmas images.



  1. Hi John,
    I must say I've so enjoyed seeing all your Beautiful Creations and I'm so looking forward to seeing more in the New Year!
    Hugs from Sam x

  2. Hi John Thank you they are all very inspirational. Take care Kitty

  3. Eh up John
    I certainly remember the white one from the TV after watching Nestas recording of it . . . .several times!
    No, you haven't shown the last one before. Doesn't shout Christmas to me but that's good if the recipient isn't big on the festivities.
    Have a great day.

  7. Another three crackers, how luxurious cards 1 and 3 are. All noted in my card log book! Don't recall seeing number 3, I know at least two couples that I would have loved to receive one. Though lets face it my attempt would fall well short on expertise. Thanks.

  8. such a beautiful selection john...

  12. Morning,
    No 3 is lovely, and no I haven't seen it before, but 2 has to be my favourite since it is sitting on display on my craftroom shelf, since I won it after the demo on C&C.
    Thank you
