Hi Bloggers.

John Lockwood is launching a Justrite One Day Special on Hochanda this evening at 8pm. Hochanda should be back on Freeview Channel 39 from 6am tomorrow morning so you should be able to catch the launch show on repeat at 7am tomorrow.

I thought I'd share this dinky little card that I made for the Trade show back in February which features some of the products on the show -

I started by stamping the Justrite Reversed Crackle Background onto Coconut White Card using Red Geranium Archival. I cut it to size by using the largest die in the Justrite Four in a Square Dies. I cut a frame our of Black Card using the largest 2 dies in the set and added the die cut to my background.

I stamped the little heart (3 times)  and the sentiment from the Justrite Loving Sentiments Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Red Geranium Archival. I cut them out using the little circle dies in the Four in a Square Die Set (you get 4 circle dies in the set). I added them to may card using 3d Foam.

I assembled the card as shown piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

I'm offering 10% discount on items I have in stock from John's ODS. You can find them here. Offer applies till midnight tomorrow night.

The winner of the card from Freebie Friday on 19th April is ...........................
