TV and Pie Day!

Hello friends,
It is TV Day!!!
I'm leaving the house as this post goes live, a two hour drive ahead of me.  This time my eldest son, Mitchell is coming along.  He is keen to see how things work in a TV studio and I will be grateful of his company and his muscles - he can carry all my crafty supplies!  
You are probably quite familiar with photos of my boys by now (I tend to use their pictures in commissions and magazines and actually they don't mind!) Mitchell is on the right - somewhat taller at the moment than my Elliott who turns 16 next week! 
So...the shows are still scheduled for 10am, 2pm and 6pm on Create and Craft.
Channel details are in the right sidebar of my blog.
This will be one of the sample cards on display today - 
again, using the lovely Homespun die set and also A-2 Fancy Weave.  
I've got some interesting stuff to explain about all these new Card Creator dies -
they are beyond useful - I'm afraid you will wonder how you lived without them! 
I selected summer bright papers, lace, ribbon for a fresh look and a rather full pie in a spotty dish.
I do hope you can tune in - got lots to share with you.
Take care friends.

Hi Christine, Great show this am, going off to take my Mum to lunch so I've pressed the record button for the other two shows. Great that you have company today, Son's are special, I have two, all grown up with Son's of their own ( we girls are out numbered in our family). Enjoy the rest of your day. Great card by the way, the new dies do look useful um, crafty brain ticking over, must get off to that lunch date. Crafty best wishes, Carolyn x.

Lovely card today Christine & two very handsome sons to be proud of. Have seen the earlier show & looking forward to the next two. The new dies look very useful may have to consider yet another purchase.

Hi Christine,
I have been watching you on
tv and was interested to hear about
the spellbinders academy. I would love to be able to come along, but you didn't say where in Kent you are situated. Hope it is not too far from Maidstone.

Hi Christine, caught glimses of your shows between looking after my grandsons. You made it really interesting with all your tips and answering questions. These dies look as though they could open a whole load of new doors with card making
