What have I got today??

Hello friends
Thank you for all your 'get well' messages, I've developed a rather
hacking cough that keeps the house awake - I can sense that even Bella is 
getting tired of hearing it!  
Not to worry it will be gone soon and it hasn't stopped me crafting!

This is a one die wonder card - everything achieved by using the
For the white background petals I've used the die to emboss only and then a different
colour gingham design paper for the flower centres and to create a scallop border.  
A few buttons, a little bit of twine and done!
You could do this with the Layered Poinsettia with Christmas colours too....

Now to recipe book - the photos are coming in - thank you!
This is Kim's.  A really nice touch to add some flowers around the book rings.
I can see the kraft pocket is already in use... 
 And this is the bit I love - her son Joseph making the Lemon and Coconut cake.
There are still a few kits waiting to go out - I do apologise for the little delay.
A couple of reasons - I'm awaiting some more chipboard covers and we are
back at King's today.  Elliott is having a series of eye tests, we are hopeful
his field vision is returning in his right eye -
(we will no longer be able to creep up behind him on that side!)

I absolutely promise that those of you have ordered a kit it will be with you very soon :)
As soon as everyone has their kit I will be making the lucky number draw -
all things Spellbinders will be the prize!

I've started planning the ad-on kit for next month and I have a wonderful
surprise for you all...let's just say the generosity of an Irish stamp company has blown me away!
(Shhh! I must not say more!!)

Take care friends.

Valerie said...

I think your ODW is brilliant, will be trying that tonight and then share it with some friends when I go to Ireland to craft with them. One of them lives there and we are having 5 days together. Chatting mostly, but that card will make a really simple project for us to do. Hope you feel better soon, Valerie

Hi Christine,
Best wishes for Elliott - and of course, hope that your cough will disappear VERY SOON. It's miserable when the damn thing just won't go away, and I'm not very good at suppressing it...........
The card is lovely - which stamp were you using?
