Demoing Toady...

Happy Saturday,

Now I know its short notice but I simply forgot to mention that I am doing another demo day toady!  It's been in my diary for weeks and I have been working on it all week however I forgot to share with my lovely blog family, sorry!  I will be in the Strikes Garden centre in Brykley Park (Burton on Trent) form 10am this morning, click HERE for more details on the venue.

Back to today and I thought would be nice to see one of the actual cards I made during last weeks demo day.  I will make a similar version of this today however I am hoping that we will have a stock of Periwinkle or Aqua (my new favourite)  whichever is in stock there will decided the colour!

This is a deceptively simple card to make as the Gemini die does all the work.  Top find out how this is made pop into the demo today and I'll share with you all how I made it!

Gemini Die Perseus
Vintage White satin ribbon
Lilac & Milk foundation card.

I will post todays version on Monday as the giveaway with detailed instructions then!
