Heavy Lifting...Giveaway

Happy Friday,

It will be great to see those of you who are going to the Crafting at Ally Pally show at Alexandra palace tomorrow or sunday especially as I spent yesterday helping with the heavy lifting to load the stands and today I will be helping set up!  Todays project is again one from my last Hochanda shows and was one of the demos. I am giving this one away as well Jy=ust leave a comment for a chance to have this card sent out to you!  I have been asked when I am back on just a reminder that all my T.V appearances are listed on the right of this page however I have agreed to add a show on the 30th September with some stunning watercolour stamps and techniques so that will be next.

Todays project is the Gift voucher holder that I made using the Sue Wilson Pyxsis gemini die set in Blue dusk and coconut white.  I hope you were able to see this one being made if not I have detailed the sizes below

cut card to 18cm wide A4
SCore at 10cm and 20cm

for a chance to wine this one soimply leave a comment all winners will be selected, at random, on Monday and posted on the blog Tuesday!

Enjoy...

Looking forward to seeing you again on Hochanda and of course the appearance of Julia on her show. Can't make Ally Pally this year hopfully I can go next spring. Kind regards Sandra Kent.

    What a refreshing change from a card and an ideal holder for gift voucher presents. I love the cornflower blue colour it's very refreshing. Good luck with your appearances at Ally Pally, just wish I could be there to meet you and the team...maybe next time. Great news about your upcoming shows, are they all on Hochanda?
