Hello friends

I'm back from my trip to Stourbridge, a lovely demo day and
so nice to catch up with friends, thank you for coming along.
It was motorway madness driving home, 
road closures, roadworks - grhhh! 
Still, home now safe and sound.  Thankful to see Bella.
I'm not sure she missed me, she stayed with my parents 
that meant lots and lots of treats!

While I was away I was demoing the Wine Country Collection,
so be prepared for quite a few wine related projects coming your way,
cheers eveyone!

Let's start with Time for Wine A2 Card Front.
This is one complete die and the perfect solution to creating an
instant card.  I thought I would girlie it up a bit with pink.
I've used the die twice, cut silver foil card to create the tiny drop shadow.
Onto the card base I used some Distress Oxide and blended it a little.

Overlaid the die cuts so it looks like the pink is in the bottle and glass...
(and perhaps a little bit spilled over!)

Added pink twine and little flowers and leaves - oh yes,
it is the time of the 'little flowers'! 

I feel this collection has been overlooked for its usefulness.
I could be biased as I LOVE wine but its great for many occasions
and especially those hard to make men cards - minus the flowers if you wish!

Time for Wine A2 Card Front is available on the website here
and if wine is your tipple take a look at the Wine Country Collection,
you can view them all here.

Take care friends, what are you up to this Bank Holiday Monday?

Hello Christine, lovely card. I agree that there is no pleasure in travelling; especially at bank holidays. We will be playing badminton for 2 hours to keep us going (lol). WakeyL

Hi Christine glad your home safe & sound it's not fun driving in lots of traffic. We have 4 roads closed where we live diversions after diversions to get into our road.
Lovely die set & how you've used it your card is so pretty. Shame I can't have my Bacardi & coke anymore with the tablets I take.
