Sunshine at last ...

Hi Everybody,

At long last the sunshine is here and today it is streaming in through my windows.... and don't you feel better when it does.

Makes me want to go out and do things to enjoy the day. If you live at the other end of the world and it's raining for you .... I'm sorry !!

On the Blog ... Flowers, Ribbons and Pearls ... I have started to do a Friday Freebie and that means that each week I will be giving away one of my cards.

All you need to do, to be in with the chance, is leave me a comment

At the end of the day one name will be drawn and the winner of the card will be notified in Saturday mornings blog post

Then you will need to email me your postal address and the card will be on it's way to you.

This sunny yellow card was on offer last Friday and there will be another one this week so why not add your comment and see if the card will be on its way to you

In the background I have been busy working away adding all the video tutorials that were previously with The Art Studio to a special page on Card Making Magic.

That is now underway and three of those Spellbinders Classes are now for sale.

They are very reasonably priced and will show you how to get the best from your dies.

Once you have bought the class through PayPal you will be taken to the Thank You page and on there you will find the link to the class and a password for you to access it.

Keep the Thank you page and the password safe and private and then you can go back to the page whenever you need too. Spellbinders Tuition

The other classes to Spectrum Noir will be added as I progress so I hope you will check on a regular basis for those.

If you previously bought the class with The Art Studio then please don't buy this group as they are the same ones.

But as The Art Studio was closing down I need to find them a new home.

I continue to have a "Give Away" as often as I can and there have been some really good prizes on offer.

Some of these prizes have been purchased by me but others have been very kindly donated by companies and I will always tell you which they are.

We have had prizes from Wild Orchid Crafts, Crafters Companion, PolkaDoodles and Funky Hand as well as many others and each one has had an excellent response.

The next one will be going out in May and if you wanted to take part in that then you will need to be a follower of the blog

If you visit the blog then please leave me a comment ... especially if you are entering the draw for the Give Away Prize.

Flowers Ribbons and Pearls

I have been adding many of the cards that I feature on the blog pages in Etsy.

They are very reasonably priced and all made with the best quality materials and this is another area that I am hoping will grow.

Please take the time to visit and should you buy something from me then please also leave a review of the card and the service you received.

And if there was something that you particularity wanted then there is a section on Etsy where you can make a custom order.

The link opens a new window to my Etsy Shop

Updates ...

YouTube continues to grow and is now at ... 3,584,126 views with an amazing 17,679 followers... and I couldn't be happier.

If you visit YouTube please let me know what you thought of the video tutorial you have watched in the comments box below it Facebook is also there for you to click the "Like" button and leave me more of your comments, stories or questions... and that has also notched up over 3500 followers.

A really big Thank You also goes to everyone for all your emails ... I love reading them and I am never too busy to respond.

But please add your email address correctly or I won't be able to do that ... so if you have not had a response then maybe I have been unable to send a reply back to you

And finally ... can I ask that if you do add photos to the Gallery Pages that you identify yourself the same each time you do.

So if you are say Christina Griffiths from Blackpool UK that the next time you add photos you don't become Chris UK ... as that is very confusing.

I may have several Marys, Emilys or Annes and in order for me to add your photos to your page and not someone elses then I need to know exactly who you are.

And I cannot accept entries from Anonymous either ... so please add your name

Thank you in advance xx
