Monday Giveaway!

Happy Monday,

I hope some of you managed to catch Sue's shows over the weekend, I had a big catch up on all of them whilst I was prepping for my next show!  Theres no better way to pick up tips than watch sue!  Also the show contained some samples that I had made and I have chosen one of those as todays giveaway.  Now the recipient may have to wait a couple of weeks as I need to get them back from Sue and Creative Expressions however I thought you might like the chance to win a card that had been featured.

This card is made using the blue and white foundation card that was featured on the shows in the card pack as well as the dies from the first bundle the Scandinavian collection as well as a couple of finishing touches.




The background is cut with the background die which I have then stuck onto a sheet of double sided adhesive sheet.  I then  brushed several shades of Mica, from the Garden Flora set that I have on at the end of the month.

Ingredients:
Craft Dies by Creative Expressions for Sue Wilson
Scandinavian collection Background
Oslo Die set
Camellia open petals
Camellia closed petals
CE Garden Flora Mica set
Double sided adhesive sheets

To win this card simply comment on this blog post and I will choose a winner at random, Enjoy...

  5. Wow-beautiful card. I wouldn't mind waiting for this if I was lucky enough to win it. Saw a few other cards on one if the shows that I' sure were yours, I just wish the cameras would spend a little longer on the cards as i'm sure it would help persuade us to buy more dies!!

  7. John... I just stumbled across your blog yesterday from a pinned card of your post last Friday.

    I was immediately impressed by your blog content, that I started following your blog (through Bloglovin'). So today, your post brought me back again when it came through my "feed"..

    I must say, THIS card is absolutely stunning! You obviously have more talent in the tip of one pinky finger than I have in both my hands combined, LOL!... I'm so glad to have found your blog :)

  16. Hi John
    What's gorgeous card this is! I love the soft blue colour. I was very tempted with the bundle that included the flowers, and while I was thinking about it (feeling guilty!), they sold out! So my fault for hesitating. I'd love to win your card instead ! Good luck with your prepping.
    Best wishes, Anne O

  20. Hi John,
    Unlike Ang, PLEASE PUT ME IN the draw. This card is lovely. I LOVE the mica in the background, in fact everything about the composition of the card and the dies used. You are clever - in the words of a song "I'm so glad I found you"

  26. Most of all, I would have loved the background die, but I just couldn't afford it. At least I have both sets of the Camellias, and I got a lot of ideas for them.
