  16. Morning John, oh this is such a lovely card, love the colours and nice to see Spellbinders on here too.

    Had a wonderful time yesterday when we met up, mind you the stand was surrounded the whole time but what gorgeous demo's you did. Loved the mixed media plates too. Just need to work out how to do the mirror image.

    Was lovely to see Jane there too, she was so helpful.

    Also the lovely lady who gave me a gift, how nice people are.

    Hope you have another busy day, I know you will, and see you soon.

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

  17. Hello John

    Not been following you long so it's lovely to see some of your original work.
    Was looking forward to seeing what you had done with the stained glass dies tomorrow but I see that Julia appears to be doing it now so sadly won't be watching.
    Perhaps we can see your versions at a later date but I understand if you can't show them.
    Kind regards

  18. Hi John a beautiful card i really like that colour .

  19. Great to see different dies working together Would love to see these in the flesh because (and it may be my screen) but I'm not sure on the colour combo - sorry

  20. Hi John

    Definitely in 'the pink' with this creation, it is so lovely and I like the mix matching!

  21. A very pretty card, though a little too fussy for my taste. That said however I love the way it shows you do not have to stick to one set or make of dies. I love Sues dies but often add other dies in with them too.

  23. A very pretty card. I like the colour combination.

  25. Hello John,
    What a pretty card! I didn't see it first time round but even if I had it's more than worth seeing again! I love pink and with the brown it's a marriage made in heaven!
    Thanks for sharing this love very card John!
    Keep smiling!
    Love Myra

  26. Lovely card design today. So glad you are showing some more oldies. I am still stunned by the announcement that you are no longer with CE. Now what am I going to do to find you and your helpful techniques here in the USA? I am disapointed to find your stain glass shows are not going to be on hochanda. My friend and I were so looking to what you had to show us. I always enjoyed your shows and I have learned from you so many techniques that have enhanced the look of my cards. Now what am I going to do? Enough about me. How are you doing? Please know others appreciate you and your style of design and we want MORE of both! Best Wishes on your new endeavors. I pray you will have an avenue to do videos that we here in the USA can watch and learn more from you.

  27. Hello John,
    What a pretty card today, well worth a second showing.
    Good luck in your endeavours.

  28. Hi John lovely card the dies work so well together

  29. A beautiful card John - deep pink is a favourite of mine. I'm a bit late commenting as I've been out all day. I did look at the blog on my i-Pad but for some reason it won't let me comment on there. Must sort it out. xx

  30. Such a beautiful and very elegant. card for today love how you have shown off the Spellbinders die off to its full potential.

  31. Hi John. Gorgeous pink and brown card. All these dies compliment each other so well. Haven't seen this card before.

  32. Eh up John
    Great reminder that mixing dies can produce a great card. Still not a fan of the holey leaves lol! Not a fan of Kraft card either but it does work very well with the pink.
    A super golden oldie.

  33. Hi John. I have just looked at the description on the original post and on the face of it I wouldn't have thought that all these dies would have worked together but they do. Great colour scheme too.
