Delightful D-Lites™

Hello friends
Firstly thank you to Mags for coming to my rescue with a copy of the magazine,
truly appreciate it.

So pleased you all like the idea of the next kit - cooking seems to be 
a firm favourite, especially cakes so hit upon a bit of a winner I think.
More details soon, awaiting some components that I have ordered and then
I can start the big reveal!

While I was in Spellbinders World I got to see some of the recent
brochures and was thrilled to see one of my cards using Die D-Lites was being featured.
Here it is - I've managed to incorporate a tag in there too! 
I've used Flower Box, inking through the die and placing some little 
pearls on each petal.  Also raised it so it isn't laying completely flat.
The sentiment is stamped and layered using Petite Labels One - these are so useful!
The background is 5 x 7 Detailed Scallops
Some of these dies are now available in my Amazon shop. 
It's a rather muted card but I liked the colour combo.

I promise to get back to Friday Die Days soon - planning lots of new videos
too - Elliott enjoys helping with those so a nice project for him!

And here is Elliott in the local newspaper this week!
It is a nice article and we decided to just ignore that the shop name is misspelt and
added a year or so onto my age!

Take care friends and have a wonderful weekend.

Fame at last, don't let it go to Elliot's head, excuse the pun. Hope you laughed. Good to get recognition for any type of charity, puts it in peoples minds. Love the card, my sort of colours. Have a good family weekend. Love Valerie

Beautiful card Christine, especially love the way you have raised the Flower Box die. It must be a wonderful and proud feeling for you to see your projects featured in the Spellbinders brochures.
Great newspaper article, despite the typos! I hope it encourages the local folk to contribute to Elliot's fund.
Looking forward to the new kit too.
Have a good day.

Morning Christine, Beautiful card, lovely muted colours, gorgeous die-cuts.
Great spread in the newspaper, albeit they got your shop and age wrong, but they did get your Blog right, and it is great information for others.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Morning Christine, so glad Mags came to the rescue with the magazine.

Morning Christine

Love the card you have made its so pretty

Great picture of Elliott in the newspaper, shame they got some of the details wrong but they got the gist of what a wonderful thing you have done.

Just thought with your new internet shop you could be Hope and choices with all the goodies to choose from lol

Hi Christine
Great that the charity is getting some good publicity, even if they did get a few details wrong. Same it didn't go national, as McDonalds does get some back press sometimes. Perhaps not a lot of people know what they do. I have the scalloped 5x7 die. But doesn't it look different used with paper. Hope you all have a lovely weekend. Look forward to the new kit. Didn't think your last kit was quite my thing until I saw what people had done with it. However, this one would make a lovely Christmas present for crafty people if not made up. Or just a present if it's made up.

Morning Christine, glad you got a magazine. Gorgeous card, love the use of different d-lites. Lovely article even if slightly misprinted - it will still raise awareness so can only be good. Emma

Maggie said...

Hello. This is a lovely card with a real vintage feel which just works. Why can papers never get it quite right? Still all publicity is good publicity especially when for a good cause xxMargaretxx

ros hodgkins said...

Hi Christine, I really like the colours in today's card, and what a great mention for your charity work, your shop/studio and photo of Elliot. I am pleased that the next project won't be long. Have a great weekend all of you.

The name you can forgive the age never (grin - sorry lost my smilies again). Great card and article shame about sloppy reporting.


utilitygirl said...

A very pretty card Christine and a nice article in the newspaper ( I do know from experience that they often get their facts wrong!!) hopefully, it will help to raise the profile of Ronald McDonald House and your shop, which sadly is too far away for me to visit :(

Lacelady said...

Pretty card Christine, and what do they say about publicity? Something about any of it is good publicity, and people will forget what age they attributed to you.

loftylass said...

Morning Christine - love your project today - the colours are gorgeous. You must be thrilled to give McDonald House more publicity - even though they used some 'poetic licence'. Looking forward to the new kit. tfs.

Greetings from Canada
Christine,your blog is one I look forward to everyday. I love spellbinders dies and have many magnetic binders full of them and adding of course. Your willingness to share your life experiences is what really appealing to me as well because I am a mother and a retired nurse. It is exciting to see how your creativity has become a family affair. By that I mean the employment of your oldest son and to see how much Elliott is involved. Blessings as you continue on life's journey. Ona
