Decembers Child...

Happy Saturday,

Don't forget Sue Wilson continues her One Day Special today on Hochanda at 9am, 12pm, 4pm and last chance at 7pm!  whereas today I arming my last workshop of 2015!  I will be at JDG crafts today working with Janet and the lovely ladies on the CE MDF sleigh.  After that I have a break for Christmas.  I'm hoping to get ahead with my designs for next year as well as some Christmas shopping!

I thought i would show one of the samples I made for my stamp release earlier this week. and I thought it might be nice to wish those with birthdays this month a happy birthday!  As I have mentioned I dip feel that Decembers children sometimes get forgotten in all the preparations for Christmas so I made this wintry card for them!

This was made using the Peeking snowflake die by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions and my winters child stamp set.

Here's hoping that all of you born this month have a lovely birthday!

  4. Simple design Jihn, but effective.

  5. Morning John, oh my such a beautiful card today, love the colours and the simple design which I know has a lot of work in it, how did you get all the pearl dots all the same size, I am amazed. I have got your stamps for the snowdrop elements, pierced flag sentiments Mondays child and winters child so I am going to be stamping away when I get a minute. Got a busy weekend with family coming to visit from all over UK so really looking forward to that, but I will be watching Sue as much as I can today, I so enjoyed her show yesterday.

    Have a great time at JDG Crafts, wish I was able to come.

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

  16. Eh up John
    Lovely CAS creation and the pearl dots add a cracking finishing touch........perhaps you can create a set of dotty stamps that fit around Sue's apertures (eeeee, that sounds a bit rude lol!) so we can either stamp some neat dots around the edges or use them as a guide to do PVA pearls as neatly spaced as you.
    Enjoy your last demo day.
