Hannah in Mocha...

Happy Monday,

I hope those of you who managed it caught some of the takeover shows on hochnada enjoyed them as much as we did! I am spending today relaxing and unpacking lol

Todays card is  a sample I made for the One Day Special over the weekend using the Hannah frames and tags die and the Labyrinth diagonal die of course I threw in some Exquisite Poppies as well!


  1. Hi John, a lovely card, great colours and a lot of effort with the PVA dots. Have a good day. Bx

  2. Good morning John what a beautiful card and the design is wonderful I love the colours you have used. It was a great weekend watching Hochanda looked like you all enjoyed yourselves.
    Have a lovely day

  3. Morning John, oh wonderful I so enjoyed the Hochanda takeover weekend, and you doing all your samples and shows so many tips and techniques, especially about the wax paper on gloss card, so helpful. I send the whole of yesterday morning taking screen shots of the card samples and jotting down the methods etc. looks like I am going to be very busy. Just got to do the same for Julia, Phill and Lisa's ones now. I so wish that Virgin Media would take on Hochanda and I could tape all the shows, would save me hours of time and PC space.

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