Pretty in Pink...and Gold!

Hello friends

Thursday - city day for me but I'm on a countdown
to the weekend, it's a busy one.
We've got Elliott's birthday on Saturday and then I'm at 
Hochanda Sunday and Monday launching the Glimmer,
I've been sharing a few sneak peeks and videos on social media
and I will be doing a full blog post shortly.

Thank you so much for your understanding regarding our change to 
postage on the website.  
In an ideal world we would have kept it free forever but when we did 
the figures (using all our fingers and toes!) 
we realised we were actually losing money on certain orders.
So it meant a lot to see nice messages of support - thank you.

Today's post features my project for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
It's a pretty in pink card.
It features Creative Photo Corners in Gold and the die set is Swirl Tags.
I really think adding the corners adds a nice frame to cards,
works wonderfully on tags too.

There's a full step by step tutorial over on the Scrapbook Adhesives blog
if you have time to take a look.

My little flowers are popping up everywhere, this time I used different colour
distress inks to make a variety.

Items used today with clickable links:

Take care friends and please stop by tomorrow,
it's Friday Die Day.

Hi Christine
Lovely card! Postage is so expensive so I quite understand your change. Your minimum order is very generous and I'm sure everyone can fins something to bring an order up to the free post level if they want to! I for one will have NO trouble in reaching it! As my favourite online craft supplier, I have a clear interest in ensuring you prosper. You always offer such value for money.. Anne O

This is a beautiful card Christine and your flowers are so sweet. You have a real knack for knowing good placement for them.
I totally understand the cost of postage these days and it is getting ridiculous. You cannot bankrupt yourself to offer free shipping and I think anyone would understand that.

I love Spellbinders and a few months ago I won a $50 gc but sadly could not afford to use it because the shipping on any/all international orders was $45, regardless of the size of the order. I was ordering more than $50 worth and so was my DIL but it didn't matter. Being a grandmother with no income I had to "let it go" because of the shipping fees. So in this case, nobody won:(
It didn't add up (even using my fingers and toes), to be much of a prize for me, so I get it.

Hi Christine the photo corners make a nice framing to your card which is so pretty. The foiling glimpses look great so I'm looking forward to the shows. I've seen that you are coming to Keep on Crafting in September and I hope to come over to see you but as mum is still in hospital I'm not sure at the moment. Best wishes Jackie x
