Dots before my eyes!

Hello friends
Happy Monday to you all!
I had completely forgotten to share this card with you, created a month or so ago for 
Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine.
It is what I call a 'panel card'.  Panels of patterned paper matted onto cardstock and then just a few embellishments.  The sentiment is stamped and inked onto Lacey Ovals.
I was asked yesterday what paper I use that looks like hessian.  I can confirm it is from Glitz Design and called French Kiss - all of the collection is gorgeous!  Hold onto your purses if you go shopping for it.
I managed to get quite a lot done in my studio over the weekend which feels satisfying.
I even squeezed in a visit to Bluewater to sort out setting up Wi-Fi in the studio - I now have a nifty little gadget that means I can connect my iPad there and a further four other devices if I need to.
It is portable too so I'm going to see how it deals with a commute to London.
 I can now reply to emails quicker when I'm out and about because typing them out on my phone 
always takes a little longer.
Hope you all had a good weekend.
Take care.

morning Christine - fab card - just shows how different the dies look with fancy papers - I am guilty of using a bit too much plain colours.

Morning Christine
Thank you so much for answering my question on the papers, never heard of glitz designs so im off for a look. This whole french kiss kit looks stunning.
Lovely card, sometimes i find busy papers overwhelming but you've shown that just using a little can make a layout.

What a lovely card Christine. Can I add that I love the way you get 3 projects appear at the bottom of your daily blog, it's such a good way to see things that I may have missed previously.....very clever.

Hi Christine,
This is the first time I've left a comment on your blog. I just wanted to say that I like making 'panel cards' too. They can be great for using up smaller pieces of stash. BTW Yours is lovely!

Planetsusie said...

Hi Christine - this card is lovely - a simple design (if you don't mind me saying) but looks so good with these papers. I think those flowers are glorious.

Those hessian papers are beautiful - I think I would just sit stroking them though - not sure I could bring myself to use them!!!!! LOL

Hugs to you

Sue P xx
