Flowery Squares

Hello friends,
Well I'm back from TV land - a long day but enjoyable.
I intend to put my feet up a little bit today, once Bella has a good walk!
I enjoyed my shows and my final show with Ellis last night was a real giggle, 
I think we covered lots of subjects Bella included! 
I know many people emailed in to the studio but not all of them were read out which is such a shame,
nonetheless I am so grateful to those who took the time and trouble.
I'm featuring one of the cards I made using a background of the square flowers from 
Damask Motifs and also a pretty tag from the same set.
I've layered up dotty paper and kraft cardstock. Small amount of distressing and inking the edges.
So very simple but I really like the geometric design.  The teal ribbon is a fav colour too! 
I've had some questions over the last few days - the papers I used for the Nestaboard/Spellbinders books that I featured last week are Tim Holtz - either Crowded Attic or Vintage Shabby.
The adhesive I used for the books is Ranger Glue n'Seal - Matt - 
these products will be available when I do my shows on 12 March.
Back tomorrow, hope you are all having a lovely weekend.

Hi Christine, enjoyed the shows, good to see you showcasing your own creativity using Spellbinders which is good. Did e-mail but for the last show messages were returned as 'spam' - no idea why. Looking forward to your next appearance. Anne

Had the grandchildren here so missed your final show and to my horror it clashed so did not record! Will watch on catch up TV hopefully. Loved your other shows and this card is beautiful.

Hi Christine,
You seemed to really enjoy yourself on the shows I saw and even though I bet you are tired its good to know you had fun. I really enjoyed the beautiful MUM banner, such a delicate and very pretty surprise for any mum.
I was so upset to find that my Sky box had frozen and stopped working before your evening show, so I completely missed it and now I can't even find a repeat (mind you it's not easy to find repeats when the shows have the same name. C&C really could do with stating what time show is being repeated so we can differentiate)
Anyway, you deserve all the praise you received so enjoy and we all look forward to seeing what you have to surprise us with on March 12.
Have a wonderful week. Linda
