A Special Guest

Hello friends
A special post today, full of festive wonder and creativity!
Before I left for Arizona I asked the very talented John Lockwood if he would 
like to do a guest spot on my blog.  I've been following John's blog for a 
while now and I admire the way he creates and uses Spellbinders® dies to their fullest potential.
I asked him to use the new Dimensional Snowflakes
he made not just one project but lots and they are all outstanding.

John is featuring his projects on his blog today so there will be further details.
A tri-fold card.
Here you can see the snowflakes in full detail.
Box and Tag - John knows how much I like a tag! 
Gorgeous layered card, Gold Elements in the background.
And...WOW - Christmas deccies!  
Made from both tissue paper and card, scored, folded and assembled.
Imagine a ceiling festooned with these.
Huge thanks to John for creating such crafty loveliness.
As mentioned, he will be featuring these on his blog today, just click on the link to say hello.

I have a limited stock of these dies available in my Amazon shop along with more
of the Christmas release.

Take care friends - I'm back soon.
