How Many samples?...

Happy Tuesday,

Todays card is another for my many samples for the shows today and tomorrow with the Great Sie Wilson on Create and Craft.  They come form the pick of the day show which launches at 9pm tonight!  Tune in on Ideal world to take a look at the stunning samples and techniques Sue has for us all.  I will be guesting the 11pm hour so if you can stay up it would be great if you could email in so I know i'm not the only one up after bedtime!

Those of you who have me on their Facebook (Johnathan Lockwood if you want to friend me) will have seen a sneak peak of this card last Friday as I showed this at my demo days at Daisies jewels and crafts in Coventry.  This is my first go at a shaker card!  to find out how to make it then you will have to tine in as this is a demo piece I am hoping to do sometime over the 2 days.

The card colours I have used are available in one of the card packs we have on the show which contains my favourite set of Blues and aqua!

The sentiment is form my new Daffodil set which will be featured on Create and Craft on the 5th May.  These should also be available elsewhere I will let you know as soon as I do!?!

and to answer the question in the title I have counted and there are 60 samples so far!...



  1. Hi John.
    Thank you a lovely card. I shall have to record all the shows. Take care Kitty.

  2. Morning John, this is such a beautiful card, it is a shame that shaker cards seem to have gone out of fashion for a while but I hope they come back because they are lovely. Looking forward to the shows.

    Happy Tuesday everyone, stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xx
