Creative Wednesday...

Happy Wednesday,

Its the last Creative Expressions design team post of the year for me today however I will be back with the design team, with a new day, next year promise!

Todays card is made using the new release of craft dies by Sue Wilson for creative expressions.  This die was one that sue launched at the weekend on Hochanda.  I used just the Cathedral background and the orange blossom flowers open and closed petals for this card.

I hope you don't mind but there is just a set of issuers of todays card!  To see what the rest of the team have made then click HERE.

  16. Morning John, oh I like this one, the colours are wonderful but I like the flowers, they look really nice especially with the steimons on the front to bring out the design.

    Got a doctors appointment later this morning as I have somehow hurt my knee, been in a lot of pain which is getting worse, since last week, don't know what I have done to it, I don't like troubling the doctor but am having to succumb and go to see him but I might have to wait a while. Anyway enough about me. I hope you are getting some relaxation now that all the workshops, and TV appearances are over for this year, looking forward to next year and your new stamps.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx
