And That's A Wrap!

Hello friends
What a brilliant day yesterday...
as I arrived the sun was shining and a cruise ship sailed along the River Thames.
(photo taken from the car park near my shop)
The filming took place in the High Street.
I made some enquiries and it is apparently a university project and should hopefully be featured 
at a film festival - not quite a blockbuster but from small acorns... 
 The cars began to arrive... 
 At one point they needed more lighting and power so we had extension leads
running through the shop, I said it would be fine as long as the shop was featured in the filming! 
And while all this was happening Nikki was busy teaching her class!
It was superb and everyone enjoyed making their cards.
 The flowers are stunning... Vintage Floret stamped with Open Vintage Floret Stamp
and Mini Vintage Floret Stamp.
Gorgeous window image, also featured using this stamp - Raindrops on Roses Window.
Mary displaying her lovely card (that isn't a real bird on the birdcage behind Mary!)
Valerie laughing - at this point Elliott had appeared in the shop and 
was threatening to photo-bomb photos!
Valerie's card - you can really see the beautiful intricate details of the Raindrops on Roses die.
The Classic Leaf die with matching stamp - brings foliage into a whole new dimension! 
Sandra displaying her gorgeous card.
A resounding success with everyone and huge thanks to Nikki for travelling 
down to Gravesend - we want you to return soon Nikki!

Other news..Mother's Day!
I'm saving that to tomorrow blog post but delighted to report my boys did me proud -
but thinking I may have to give up on the tidy bedroom idea!

Also stop by tomorrow for the news of who won the knitted squares 
baby blanket - I asked Nikki to pick out the winning raffle ticket.

Take care friends - wishing you all a great start to the week.

Hi Christine, all the cards look lovely, looks like the ladies all had a great time! Shame it wasn't a blockbuster, but like you say 'little acorns;..howver...the film that my little group made whilst studying film at uni, was so bad I cringe when I think of it...I was always more interested in the theory rather than practical, thank goodness! Lol, Carole Z X

Wow, Christine, your ladies really made the most beautiful cards, I bet they were really pleased with their efforts. Great to have the shop featured in any film.

Sandra said...

Wow what beautiful cards ladies,Nikki clearly was truly inspirational. I love the pretty dies and papers used in the card project, the shape and 'tag' style was lovely too, something different, would be a great way to give tickets or a voucher!
I am sure that Elliott is like a little celebrity when he joins the fun at the studio! Such a courageous young man and a true inspiration to others!
I hope you had a lovely Mothers Day Christine, you surely deserve it xx
Hugs to all

The cards made by the ladies yesterday are all absolutely gorgeous. The 'Raindrops on Roses' really is one of the most appealing 'Heartfelt' collections I've ever seen. I am severely tempted to splurge! Thanks for sharing the photos.
