Sneak Peak..shows on Thursday...

Happy Monday,

I thought you would all appreciate a sneak peak of one of my demo cards for the launch of the One Day Special on Hochanda (Hone Of Crafts, Hobbies AND Arts) on the launch day for the channel on Thursday.  I will be on at 7pm for my first hour I will then be back on Friday for another 5 hours or so! for more info on this new Craft channel and number for free view etc click HERE

 I will be making demos for the next couple of days and wracking my Brian (yes I spelt this right that's what I call my brain!) for new tips and techniques.  This first of these is the making and colouring of these flowers.  To find out how they are made and also how I coloured them as they are made with white felt then you will need to tune in!

all the products used to make this card will be available on the show and online so again tune in on Thursday to see how I have made it!

I have added a few more pictures for you!

Winners...

the winners from this weekends card draw are.......

Saturday - Nancy
Sunday - Lorraine Eastwood

Ladies, if you email me your address by Lockers@live.co.uk I will post these out ton you after the shows.  There will also be another Giveaway On Thursday to celebrate as well as a separate giveaway on Face book. If you haven't friended me then you can HERE


Enjoy...

  20. Hi John,
    I Hope You Had a Great Weekend With Julia In Preston!
    I Truly Love Today's Remarkable Card I Love The Fabulous Colour Palette The Stunning Die And The Very Magnificent Beautiful Flower I'm So Looking Forward To The Fantastic New Craft Channel I Hope We Get To See Lots Of Demos And That You Guy's Can Share Tips And Techniques I Really Understand Products Have To Be Sold!!!! But We So Want To See You Guy's One Of The Reasons I Stopped Watching Create And Craft Was The Presenters Go On To Much When Anyone From Creative Expression Was On I Would Tape Just To See The Demos And Beautiful Sample Cards Made, Then When Presenters Rattled On I Would Very Quickly Rush Past That The Problem Is The Presenters Interrupt The Denonstrations Also.
    Take Care John Thanks For Sharing

  30. Well thanks for explaining the name John I thought it a cross between German and Japanese!! I like the simplicity of this card, not too ornate and a pretty colour. Have heard now from Mandy that the workshop on Thursday is to be rearranged so I will await the new date. In the meantime have fun getting your samples done 5 hours of shows is a lot in one day!! love from Jackie xx

  34. Hiya John,
    Well, I am doing the happy dance this morning, what a lovely surprise to be chosen to receive one of your gorgeous creations...and with my favourite dies too!
    This will be framed and take pride of place on my craftroom wall, Thankyou so muchxxxx
    I am beyond excited about having six hours of fabulous demos- try not to let Brian get to stressed beforehand, cos if the samples are half as good as today's lovely card you will be doing a happy dance with me:-)
    Loving the felt flowers, will definitely buy them if they are featured on your shows.
