Day 6...

Happy Tuesday,

I'm starting to feel bad about these short posts I really hope you all don't think I'm just "phoning it in" lol

Today's card is hopefully giving you some sunny colours that will match the weather I hope you are all getting!  I have just checked and where I am on holiday the temperature is supposed to be over 45 degrees!

This is the last sample I made for Julia Watts and is again using the new collection form Couture Creations Whilst discussing Couture Creations I must say a quick Hi to Carol form Australia (which is where these dies come from) who should be home in Ox by now and brought me a beautiful paper based gift form there when she was over last month (I will be showing some creations with this later in the month)

Although it looks complex today's card is just a series of squares cut in the primrose card I had on my stamp shows in April and coconut white.  I let the die cuts do all the work on this one and just added some raw silk double sided satin ribbon around the back and a bow to balance (I know some will think this is a little large but it is a large 21 x 21 cm card!)



  1. Morning John, hope you are enjoying your holiday and that you are relaxing, I so enjoy your posts - just right so no worries there - anyway back to the card today, love it, I am definitely going to have a play with this one, gorgeous.

    Enjoy Tuesday everyone, stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

  2. Hi John, today's card is so pretty with the primrose yellow, hopefully it will prompt the sunshine later, it is a little bit grey at the moment, definitely not as warm as where you are. Have a great day. Bx

  24. Morning John,
    Gorgeous card, I must say yellow is not a colour I use very often but it's looks good on your card.

  25. Fab card John again and not too big for me - carry on enjoying although a tad too hot for me!! xx GailT xx

  26. Good morning John, what do you mean supposed to be 45 degrees? are you not there? And I thought I was loopy :) don't worry about short posts (at least I can understand them lol). Enjoy the rest of your hols!!! Oh by the way your cards are
    fab!!! Loopy Lynda xxx

  27. Hi John. Another lovely card, in a beautiful primrose yellow, it is so pretty. Thank you for blogging every day, even when you are on holiday, it is very good of you. What is the temp where you are? You say it SHOULD be 45 degrees, is it cooler? Have fun whatever it is. Take care x

  28. Hi John,
    Lovely, lovely card. Unfortunately doesn't reflect the weather we're having in Chester (grey for the most part but always cold).
    Love the colours and the centre piece is so pretty.
    As for the rest - ditto Lynda Mellor.
    Best wishes, Rose

  29. An absolutely stunning card John. I love the layers and the pretty colour. I could do with a bit of 45 degrees sunshine - but we go on holiday on Saturday so maybe there will be some left for us! Pat x

  30. Hi John, a really lovely card, but for me the ribbon is not the right colour. X Ros

  31. Hi John

    Absolutely gorgeous card such a pretty colour combo and all the lovely neat frames so perfect (mine are always a bit wonky I blame me age he he)

    The vino must be good where you are John if your not sure how hot it is :-)
    You enjoy and recharge your batteries.

    Hugs Annx

  32. Hi John, wow such a beautiful card!
    Regards Liz.

  33. Such a beautiful 'relaxing' card John. I tend not to use yellow I think it's because I haven't found a nice shade like you have for example, yet when I see them on blogs I think they are really pretty when paired with white.
    Thank you for continuing to post in spite of being fried to near death!!!! ENJOY.

  34. Hi John, today's card is a lovely sunny style very pretty, I was not around to comment on Sunday's an Monday's card but have just taken. Look an they are both great I really like yesterday's shaker card. Take Care an enjoy the rest of your holiday. Melody x

  35. Wow This is stunning John, so love this one, beautiful. Stop worrying about the short posts, we all understand.

    Love & Hugs

    Hope you are not in 45° heat or you will be coming home with more white bits, as it will be too hot for you to sunbathe!
    Loving the primrose. Such a subtle summery touch. Super design.
