It is the weekend dear friends and I hope the sun is shining where you are.
This is one of the cards I featured on Create and Craft TV and actually got to demo!
I've used templates No. 2 and 3 to create a frame from white cardstock. (With Spellbinders dies you always count from the middle outwards so the smallest template is always No.1).
Popped a piece of patterned paper behind, looped some of the double sided ribbon, added a black embellishment from the Studio 490 range and again....
used the lovely little leaves and flowers from Homespun!
I don't think I'm going to stop loving those cute little florals.
It is a speedy card! I like the black and white with just the small shot of colour but I also think it will work in various other colours...I may just try that!
I wanted to mention something today - I lost my Great Aunt a few days ago - an incredible lady who lived into her 90's. Up to a week ago she was still shopping in Morrisons, cooking her own meals and loyally watching every soap (and me!) on TV. She was a true traditional old fashioned lady who thought that if a presenter kissed me on the cheek he would be sure to ask me to marry him!
This special lady was born in Camberwell, London in 1916, she raised my dad when he lost his own mum at a very young age. She worked through the war in a biscuit factory and then the Co-op.
At the age of 87 she decided to move to Portugal and then returned a few years later!
She only ever had alcohol once in her life ...
A fascinating life and thankfully a couple of years ago she sat down with my sister and I and we recorded a video film of her detailing her upbringing and life story.
I'm sad but I'm also celebrating her amazing long and full life.

Take care friends.
