Day 3...

Happy Saturday,

AS I may have mentioned I am away at the moment recharging the batteries so hopefully will come back itching to craft and full of new ideas!

Todays card is another of the Demo cards I made on C&C america using the Spanish collection form Sue Wilson.  I know I don't use a lot of green however the beautiful leaf motif that flows through this collection just cried out for some bright green and for once a little glitter (and its not even christmas)



  1. Hi John.
    Thank you I have the ingredients for this one. I hope you are fully recharged now.
    Today I must have a good clear out. I bet I find things I have forgotten about. Take care Kitty.

  2. Morning John, another beautiful card today, green is a colour not used very often but this look really, really nice. Enjoy the rest of your holiday.

    Have a great Saturday everyone, stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

  3. A pretty card but think I would prefer flowers or leaves to a big bow.

  4. Eh up John
    Can't see the glitter but lovely card as Im not adverse to a touch of green.
    Hope you're not sunburned.

    A beautiful card, I love the colours they work really well. I used to think that I had a favourite colour but I think that I just love colours!

  14. Hi John hope you are enjoying the sun, hope you bring some back with you the weather here is awful.
    I watched you do this card on C&C and at the time I had just made a card using this die, and was kicking myself that I could have actually made it as a shaped card lol.
    Oh well the recipient liked it, so that makes the difference.

  15. Good morning John you say it is not Christmas but it is on C & C so this card would fit in quite well! Pouring with rain here and had to hang the washing indoors so I hope you are having some sunshine love from Jackie xx

  16. Love the colour combination in this card.

  22. Hi John,
    this card is absolutely beautiful. I LOVE GREEN and the spanish b/grd die is stunning. Love how you've used it.
    I'm sure you're recharging in the sunshine and enjoying yourself.
    Best wishes, Rose

  23. Hi John
    What a stunning card. Hope you having a good rest. I love green but not usually on a card. But this one I love.

  24. Hi John

    Glad you feel 'recharged'! I have to say this is stunning. Green and black is really striking, not something I'd have considered all, and it shows off the best of this die.


  25. John, I hope you're enjoying your break. You've certainly showed off these fabulous dies to their best advantage, your card is stunning. Pat x

  26. Hi John

    Beautiful card loving the green with a hint of black.

    Hugs Annx

  27. Hi John,
    Lovely card, not keen on the bow though.

  28. Hi John. I love the shade of green you have used on this one, it's not a colour I use too much so must do something about that!. Don't go getting sunburnt. Take care x

  29. Not really my sort of colour, but pretty nonetheless.

  30. I love it! Green is not a colour I would normally use - it was my school uniform colour - yeuck! But this is gorgeous
