Humming Birds

Hello friends

Today a card that really shows off the die cuts, they are definitely the main feature.
I've used Floral Assortment to create a double frame for my humming birds,
(Graphic 45 paper) against a background of pale blue cardstock.

This card is travelling to Durham with me as I really think it shows off this die perfectly.
It is also available on the website here.

My bags are packed - I have a new suitcase, it's quite large!
Travelling by train this evening so I'm ready and raring to go at
The Crafty Nook in the morning.
Very much looking forward to meeting those who can get there.

As for other venues, I'm updating the tour schedule and I should be at
The Glitter Pot in Burgess Hill on Saturday and Sunday 2/3 May,
The Artistic Stamper in Faversham - Saturday 11 July and
Colemans in Rushden on Saturday 3 October.

Other bookings in between Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire and Buckinghamshire.
I'm certainly travelling the country :)

A Spring Sale has appeared on the website, more items added and of course don't forget
to regularly check out the Pre-Loved - always a bargain there.

Take care friends, enjoy your Sunday.

Good morning Christine,
Gorgeous colour combination today, always reminds me of wedgewood ! That die is so pretty, that background of blue shows every bit of the delightful detail!
Lovely hummingbirds too (that sounds wrong doesn't it)!
But you know what I mean, I can tell you are liking the Graphic 45 range!
Have a lovely time in Durham, they are super lucky to be having you! I am sure the shop will be packed!
Love & hugs
Sandra xxxx

Hi Christine,
Love this card, the dies are just beautiful and will be on my next order.
Have a good trip up here, remember to watch out for the cathedral as you approach Durban station, on the right hand side of the train as you travel north. Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow.

Good morning Christine
Beautiful card today. There is something so clean and fresh about blue and white isn't there. And as for the topper - Graphic 45 papers are to die for (literally!)
I hope you have a safe journey up to the beautiful city of Durham. I am hoping to pop over to see you in Chester Lacrosse plate final permitting (the date has still not be finalised).
Take care

Beautiful card Christine and you and I must be on same wavelength as I posted a humming bird card on my blog a few days ago...including a few photos I managed to get of one on our last trip to my family in USA. They are my very favourite birds, I used to watch them at the feeder in my auntie's garden when I was a young girl, for ages! Happy Sunday! hugs Carole Z X

Gorgeous card Christine, I love blue and white, whatever shade of blue!
Safe journey to Durham and enjoy your day tomorrow. We stopped in Durham overnight one year en route to Scotland for a holiday. Such a beautiful city and cathedral. I hope you find a little time to take a look.

This card really does show off this beautiful die. Floral Assortment is an odd name for this particular set though.
Gorgeous image from Graphic 45.
Enjoy your trip.

Hi Christine, well you don't do cards often but it is well worth waiting for, the dies and the paper look stunning together. Enjoy your jaunt up north. So pleased you have booked in at Colemans it's a great day and very popular. So anyone in the area, the big Demo days are the first Saturday in each month. X Ros

Morning Christine, Lovely die-cuts, beautiful colours and gorgeous bird paper, all complementary to each other.
Safe journey.
Sorry I have been missing for a couple of days, my eyes are terrible at the moment, so have been keeping off my laptop, in the hope that will give a bit of ease.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
