Sunday Giveaway!

Hello friends

Really??? 1 March already?!

Yesterday I was at the Make It Show in Farnborough, I packed my bags....
and set off.  The M25 was kind to me - thank you traffic fairies!
I've never been to this show before so I wasn't prepared that it is on an 
airfield and the arena is huge - I mean massive!!  
It was busy but I think I managed to keep up chatting to everyone,
with demonstrating Spellbinders in between!
It was wonderful to meet up with blog follower friends so special thanks 
to those that come to say hello.
 I returned home mid evening, dinner and Bella cuddles.
All in all a great day.

Back to today it's a giveaway!
One of the dies I was demonstrating yesterday was Diagonal Chevron.
You may recall it from this card that I made.
It proved really popular and it was pointed out many times that it would 
also be useful to create male cards.
So, if you would like to win this die, easy peasy - just make sure you are a follower 
and leave a comment on today's blog post, a winner will be selected next week.

Wishing you a lovely Sunday.  Take care friends.

Good morning Christine
Glad to hear you had a great day yesterday. It is always fun to get out and about meeting fellow crafty people at shows and I'm sure it must be even more fun demoing although hard work.
I love this chevron card especially the way you have put some of the chevrons back into the die cut. Thank you for the chance to win this die.
My New Grand Calibur arrived yesterday so I am up early to spend some time in my craft room. Thank you again for the amazing service and for the regular messages about my parcels progress.
Have a restful day.

Patricia Youdell said...

Hi Christine
It was lovely to meat you in person yesterday at Farnborough.
I like the paper piecing on your card, and agree it could easily become a male card.
Take care Pat x

Glad to hear you enjoyed the show & the journey/traffic wasn't too bad.

The card is lovely & the chevron die could be very useful especially for making those tricky "male" cards!


Oksana said...

Hi Christine, sounds like you had a good time! Lovely card and die, thanks girls for the hance to win it!x

Chris said...

Morning Christine,
Glad you are home safe and sound. You certainly looked busy yesterday, I bet the day flew by. Thank you for the chance to win the Chevron die, and as the other ladies commented, it could be really useful. I like what you did with it on your card. Have a relaxing Sunday.
Chris xx

Lynn said...

Morning Christine, the show yesterday looks a lot like the one we have here in Newark, it's held on our showground( which used to be part of an airfield) very big spaces, and on a day like today very breezy!. Looking out of the windy it's a perfect spring day, sunny, blue sky, but very very windy......what is it they say? March comes in like a lion out like a lamb? Does that mean we'll get good weather later in the month? Have a good Sunday Lynn xx

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Christine, Wow !!!!! that show does look biggggggg !! So glad you had a great time.
I love this card, the chevron die would be ideal for a man's card too, I love how you have placed some of the chev's back into the die-cut, looks really effective. Thank you for the chance to win !!
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Janice said...

Good morning Christine
Good to hear you had a great day yesterday, Farnborough is certainly a big show! Hope it wasn't too windy there as that usually makes the marquee rattle a bit! One year I remember they closed the show because of it.
Thank you for the chance of winning this lovely die.
Enjoy your Sunday.

Sandra Biggs said...

Hi Christine
So pleased you had a lovely day yesterday. Love this card especially putting the chevrons back in place. Have a quiet today, maybe???

Janice Wallace said...

Looks like a great show, I envy everyone who lives closer to these places. Not even a craft shop near me, which is why I need your blog.
It does look a great die, and one which will look different depending on the background.

Pat S Witney said...

Hi Christine
I'm glad that you had a lovely day yesterday at the show, and that the traffic fairies were good to you. It was lovely to meet you at last. I didn't manage to see you demonstrating but did see some of the projects you've put on your blog before. Look forward to seeing again in the future.

Wendy Nesbitt said...

Glad you had a great day. Probably wouldn't have thought of this die but can now see the possibilities. Would also work well landscape. Wendy N

Valerie said...

Happy Sunday Christine, the sun is shining and I am just about to craft. Love this die I can see how useful it could be. So it may have to go into my shopping bag, unless I win it. Hope your days is as bright as mine is going to be. Valerie

ElizabethS said...

Hi Christine, so glad you had a great day yesterday and all went well. Bet you enjoyed your Bella cuddles last night.
Yes I agree, the chevrons can be masculine or feminine and your card is really pretty.
Have a lovely Sunday - I will as I will be crafting.
Elizabeth x

LoraineC said...

Lovely sunny day here, but feeling a bit sorry for myself today!! Horrible cold and a swollen knee ( not sure what the link is ha ha). Glad you had a good day, I agree this die would be good for a mans card I always struggle with ideas for men!!! Home alone today as hubby and daughter are of to Wembly so it's just me the dogs cat rabbit and some crafting. Enjoy your Sunday xx

Sue Dunn said...

Good morning Christine. Glad you had a good day in farnborough. Im catching up with you whilst in Mexico on holiday. It's early morning here and still dark, but about 20 degrees warmer than the UK. The chevron die looks very pretty the way you have used it and I agree it would be perfect for male cards too. Have a great weekend. X

Sharon said...

Thank you for the chance to win this lovely die. This will look beautiful with flower arrangements on it.
Best wishes love Sharon x

lydia jordan said...

Morning Christine,
Sounds like you had a great day yesterday and met some of your blog followers.
Thanks for the chance to win this die it's one I have looked at but wasn't sure if I would use it very much, but seeing your lovely I think it would get a lot of use.

Lesley Thomas said...

Oh, wow, what a great venue, I wish I could get to a show like that. The only one we have in the country which is anything like that is in Belfast. (the other side of the country, but I do make the effort to go).

Love your card, it looks as if it would be a very versatile die.

joy said...

That is a huge space for a craft show! I love your card using this die. Thanks for the chance to win.

Maggie C said...

Hello Christine,
Just too far to come and say hello but it would have been great to see you demoing in the flesh (if you see what I mean!). Loved this card when we saw it before and really love this die so thank you for the chance to win it. Fingers firmly crossed. xxMargaretxx

Mrs. O said...

Really like the sample card with thediagonal chevron die! Love that flower, as well! Thanks for all of your inspiring designs!

Andrea said...

Thanks so much for the chance of winning this die. Lovely card too

Anita Braddock said...

Beautiful card love the chevrons and the layering you have done is perfect. Love the pastel color choice. Love the demonstrations you do for us all. thanks for sharing.

nattyboots said...

Hi Christine
Just catching up with your fantastic blog ,some lovely ideas and tips .
Take care

Bejay Roles said...

Hi Christine
Happy St. David's Day! I'm glad you had such a great time at the show, I just wish that we had them down here in Cornwall. It seems all the companies that arrange these wonderful shows seem to think that the country stops at the Tamar Bridge...nothing ever seems to get to the craft wilderness that is Cornwall. I think though that it's the only reason I don't like living here in the south west :).
I love this die and actually have it on my ever growing wish list and I love the card you made with it, especially using some of the waste at the bottom to give some depth. x

Laura O' Connor said...

great die today ,and a stunning card you have made with it ,Laura O

Hi Christine,
I love the use of the die, so simple and yet so effective.

Cazann49 said...

Hi Christine,glad you enjoyed yesterday. I have never been to a proper craft show, because of my health issues, so it is lovely to see pics of the show. I love the card, and would love to win the Chevron Die pls. Have a fab Sunday. Love to you and the boys, and Bella as well of course! xx

Barbara said...

Lovely card, fantastic colours and I really do need that die.

CraftyJo said...

What a shame Farnborough is so far away from me - looks like it would be so much fun. Thanks for the chance to win that fab die :)

ros hodgkins said...

Hi Christine, this is one of the mid release dies that for some reason I missed. It looks to be a very handy male card. X Ros

Littlelamb said...

Like this card. Somehow I missed you demonstrating yesterday. Met Sandra and Sue and they said they had seen you but you were not demonstrating when I looked. Glad the traffic was good to you. The M25 can be a pain at times. Have seen this die before but had forgotten about it.

uneasyjune said...

Lovely card sadly couldn't make it to the show

Kristina B. said...

That's an awesome die! Wish we had more shows like that around here in Michigan

Ann said...

Hi Christine

The show looks fabulous plenty of room to move around glad you had a great day.

Really like the card the die looks gorgeous.

hugs Annxx

Sandra said...

Hi Christine,
Just want to say what an absolute pleasure it was to finally meet you yesterday! The show was very good and very well organised.
You will be pleased to hear that Paul found an Alan Key (why are they named after Alan)? And took my guillotine apart, removed a piece of jammed paper, tightened it back up and.." cuts perfectly, so he would like to thank you for saving him £30 or more, I would like to thank you as I can now cut perfectly straight card and paper!
I would also like to thank you for taking the time to leave a comment on my blog, what a kind thought!
I look forward to meeting you again very soon!
Love & hugs
Sandra xxxxxx

graham Brand said...

It's a great die, so versatile. I love how you used it for your card.

Ann Morris said...

Hi Christine, a great die with many uses and i didn't think one flower could look so effective.

lovestamping said...

the show looks interesting. Just a pity I live in the North East!
The chevron die is definitely useful for male cards and must look up the die you used for the leaves. Thanks for sharing.

Teresa Doyle said...

Thanks for the chance to win this die. I love the card you made with it and yes, I imagine it would make some lovely masculine cards. Glad you had a good day yesterday. (That arena does look HUGE! haha)

AnneRD said...

Hi Christine, glad you had a good show, it looks a very impressive venue. The card is lovely and the die a good one for making cards for the men in our lives. Loved the paper piecing element. Anne x

Carole Z said...

Glad you enjoyed the show Christine, what a fab card and die, hugs Carole Z xx
