Hello My Friend

Hello my friendS!
Todays card goes back to the very faithful black and white, whenever in doubt of colour
go back to black and white!  It stands the test of time and never fails to look elegant.
A simple card making good use of M-Bossabilities and Edgeabilities -
all the details can be found here.
Adore the black beaded swirl, in severe danger of adding these to every project right now! 
I'm having a big sort out in my craft space so there will be quite a few giveaways coming up,
today I've decided I would like to send out one of my Spellbinders Nestaboard books,
this one...yes it has a swirl!
If you think you would like to give this book a new home, please make sure you are a follower and just leave a comment on this blog post.
Bella will be clocking on for work on Sunday and I will post the winner on Monday morning.
Back tomorrow friends,
take care.

'Morning Christine, Such a classic colour combination, and as Sue has already stated, so elegant. I think I need buy the flourishes, they give just the right amount of bling.

Hi Christine, Thanks for the chance to win the nestabook. I can't quite believe you are willing to part with it. It is so beautiful & feminine. I particularly love the felt flowers. You are right cutting felt is so addictive & when I saw you cut through with the morriccan dies I was amazed I thought this would be far too intricate. This revelation has opened up so many new possibilities fir my crafting. Thanks again. With Love & Admiration.

Hi Christine,
You can never go wrong with monochrome! Those pearly swirls give such a beautiful finishing touch!
I love the effect of the Nestaboard, the various shapes are so versatile, from making photo books to a perfect storage device for my older daughters Revision Cards!
Huge crafty hugs

Hi Christine,
I fell in love with this card when you showed it first on Create & Craft. It is, what I term, an anytime/anyone card. Its clear elegance and stylish simplicity is beautiful.
Thank you for offering up your gorgeous journal for candy, I am certain anyone here would treasure it. For me it would be used to record my thoughts for the day.
Enjoy the rest of the week. Linda

Adele said...

Hi Christine I too am new to both spellbinders and your blog. After watching you work your magic I purchased the grand callibur. So far I have had a fantastic time cutting and embossing, but have brain freeze when putting things together, this is where I am hoping your page can help me. THanks for the inspiration and please put me in with a chance to win, by for now Alma

Hi Christine, you always seem very relaxed when you're crafting on TV, perhaps I need to do more of it as I find it quite hard to relax! Your Black & White card is so elegant, just my style, I'm off to have a try! Saw your demo on the nestaboard books, they're just lovely. Thank you for the opportunity to win, hope Bella is lucky for me! take care Alison :)
