 Happy Thursday,

Ive had to change todays post so Im afraid its a quickie Im writing at 6am this morning, sorry!  More info tomorrow lol

  21. Good Morning John,
    Well I am happy you chose this card it's wonderful not only that but I have most of these dies just need the stars so as I am having a do not disturb crafty day today I'm going to have a go at this card.
    Thanks for the inspiration I will show you how it ends up later today on Facebook might look a lot different, well I think I should have said will look a lot different to yours but inspired by you.
    Thanks.

  30. Hi John
    What a stunning card today. I bought this Striplet die so might do a version of this card.
    John. I've just seen the show that you did on C & C with Natasha. I must just say what a fabulous set of stamps and paper pad you've created. They all mix and match which is great. I also don't do paper pads as usually you get a few nice ones and quite a few that aren't . However, this pad is gorgeous, all the designs are great and you've added toppers as well, just in case we need cards in a hurry or to make batch cards. Also their double sided. All in all a fabulous collection.

  31. Hi John,
    stunner of a card - I love it. You had me guessing for a minute as to the star pray, but this is such a versatile die, I shall use it all year round.
    Best wishes, Rose
