Spring & Summer...

Happy Friday,

I hope you managed to catch Last nights L:lunch show I really enjoyed the launch especially as its the Birthday week and I returned a year later ( being on Hochanda on day 1) with my own designs!

I thought today I would show you the last 2 seasons child cards I made to showcase the new Seasons child set Spring and Summer.  If you want to see these samples shown and some (hopefully informative) demos then tune in today at 9am, 12pm, 4pm and last chance at 7pm.

Once again I teamed these with my Christmas Shades premium pair pack Spring is with the Amethyst shade pop pares.  I used the Sue Wilson Cornflower die along with the Maidenhair fern to frame this one on white and icicle pearl card.

Next Comes summer teamed with the Soft Gold papers and the camellia dies.

hopefully theres something for you in these ideas if not there may be more in the shows! lol
