Thanks So Much

Hello friends
Oh where is the sunshine??? It is so dull, damp and grey - just a little bit of sun pretty please!
Thinking ahead that we might get some Spring-like weather I am sharing
a fresh looking card with you today.  
You may have caught me demonstrating this on Create and Craft.
It features the very lovely Reverence M-Bossabilities folder along with
Gold Ivy dies, the tiny flowers and leaves from Homespun (as featured yesterday and yes, I will be stocking this set..due to arrive very soon) and a little Classic Scalloped Heart .
I was asked yesterday information regarding the new magnetic placement mat for use with the 
Spellbinders have the information regarding the mat here explaining the sandwich etc.  
I have these on order for my studio and Amazon shop.
Talking of my Amazon shop I perhaps should clarify a couple of things - as a seller listing
products I am not always able to upload my own image, if the product is already available on Amazon 
I have to use the existing image (annoying because I sometimes think my photo is better!)
I would urge you to check sizes and descriptions just to make sure you are 
buying exactly what you need, 
I'm very happy to exchange products but it saves you any inconvenience.  

Also postage costs - I've tried really hard to be as cheap as possible but Mr Royal Mail isn't
very understanding!  With Amazon, it is necessary to create 'postage bands' e.g. up to the value of 
£10 there is a £1.95 postage fee so this may appear pricey if you are only ordering a small item - say one stamp - but not so expensive if say you are ordering, say, 4 bottles of Cosmic Shimmer. 
As mentioned - if you prefer to buy products direct from me please email, you do not 
have to go through Amazon and I can always adjust postage costs a lot easier when dealing direct.

 Okay so that was a little bit business like...I've been meaning to mention those points and 
they appeared at the top of my 'To do list' today!  

Right now Spellbinders are having an 'Explore Beyond Blog Frenzy and Giveaway' -
make sure you click into each day for some brilliant projects.

Tomorrow I can share with you some sneak peeks of the Mother's Day class on 9 March.
Also if you feel like escaping this grey dull weather this Sunday, Jennie from the Artistic Stamper
is going to be in my studio teaching a canvas class featuring Rose Creations and Carnation Creations - 
here is a Carnation Creation I featured as Friday Die Day last year.
Please feel free to email for more info.
Take care friends.

Morning Christine,
I agree with you, winter has lasted too long this year. I saw you demo this lovely card on C&C and I think I will make a Spring card today. Bring on the Sunshine.
Love Chris X

Hi Christine,
I so wanted to go to your class on the 9th but I am having a little holiday in Anitbes, France. Although it is a little bit warmer you still need a jumper but there is a lovely blue sky and sunshine.
I like this little flower you use, might have to buy one.
Take care Sally x

Hi Christine,
I loved the card when I saw you make it on C&C and see no reason to change my mind when seeing it on your blog. It's lovely and fresh - just what the doctor ordered.
Ignore the sky, I just keep looking at my snowdrops and crocusses and enjoying their loveliness - if there aren't any in your garden already, it's worth investing in some of them just for that reason.
Have a great day Rose (in equally grey Chester)

Good morning Christine,
I loved the card when you demo'd it on Create and Craft, green is my favourite colour, it looks a simple card but so elegant, your very clever at creating a lovely effect with layering ribbons.
I don't have the rose/carnation dies, but I must look into buying them as I love the effect!
I would love some inspiration for creating some pretty tags, can you help please?
I am now off to look at the Spellbinders blog.
Have a great day,
Hugs?
Sandra
