Best Wishes

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I misted through the Being Square Mask onto Black Card with CS Pastel Purple Chalk Mister. I used Phill Martin's in the box technique for a fine mist.

I dusted with an Anti-Static Pad and stamped the Woodware Best Wishes Banner using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS True White Detail Embossing Powder.

I coloured in using CS Summer Garden Watercolour Palette using a Water Brush.

I completed my card by adding a 5mm White Pearl to each corner of my background, matting onto Coconut White Card and then onto a Black Card blank.

Lisa Horton is launching a One Day Special on Hochanda this evening at 8pm with some brand new stamps (summer gnomes!) and matching Pop-ems. You can find the items I have from the shows on my website here (I'll add items as I find out what they are). There's 10% off everything (excluding workshops) on my website till midnight on Friday as I'm away for a few days. Orders will be posted out from Friday afternoon onwards. Discount will be applied automatically at checkout.

In case you missed it yesterday (I know many of you don't get chance to visit over the weekend) - I'm launching a One Day Special on Hochanda next Monday (22nd) with Sue Wilson's Stained Glass Window Collection. If you have these dies, have made cards with them and would like for them to be shown TV, I would love it if you would send them to me. I need them by Saturday 20th May. Make sure that you put your name on the back so I can give you a name check if your cards are shown. If you would like for your cards to be returned after the shows, be sure to pop your address on the back too. Please email me at and I'll let you know where to send your cards. Many thanks to those of you who have already been in touch 😊
