The two that nearly got away..

Good morning, and thank you for joining me today. ...it is 9-20 am and I have walked the dogs, had breakfast and just hung some washing out. So before I start my craft jobs for today I thought I would share two samples with you that nearly got away.... I made them for Barbara and her show for USA...

They were an extra make so I am afraid there was no time for step by step photos...

The first one was to showcase the mask and the wonderful stamps, the moonshadow, silhouette trees and mini flock...

I wanted to try and make an evening scene, where the castle is lit up, with lots of spotlights....

Here is a closer look...Lots of stamping....First and second generation....

For the second one , I wanted to use the tree stamp....but not as a tree...

You know me....as a wreath....

And here is the finished card using numbers from the alphabet numbers set.....

Cool idea for a man .....what do you think ?

As always I love to read your comments...you see I love my little blog .....as although I do put things on social media I do find some people can use it as a form of bullying...it can be such a horrible world....

So I love to surround myself with lovely friends...some coffee, cake....and we can just chat and share ideas....

Have a good day all....and be kind to each other....

Hugs.....

Jo. xxxx

  4. Beautiful Jo. I do love all the wreaths you create, You have a wonderful style. Shame if people are cruel but just ignore them. I agree a great male card, stored in my memory now for difficult men in family. Thankyou. xx

  9. Just love the spotlights on the castle . Think I'm a long way off from being able to get that effect . A cup of coffe and cake sounds delightful. I'm going to try a walk the weather here in Virginia is unbearable . It's 95 f and humidity of 50% and heat index of 105 . Thank you God for air conditioning .
