A blog post - hurrah!

Hello friends

A blog post - hurrah!
In my defence I've been away...
yes I've been to The Craft Channel studios again having way too much fun ...
I mean working!
Just to let you know my shows will be with a variety of great presenters,
Julian Ballantyne, Anthony Heywood, Dawn Bibby and Debbie Greenwood.

And a reminder of those channels etc please visit here.
I realise that not everyone has certain channels but please be assured
they are working 24/7 to try and make The Craft Channel available to everyone.

Now a project!
I've put together a card using Fancy Lattice as a background.
I used A2 Matting Basics B to create the frame,

Pierced Ovals for the centre piece and the flower is from Enhanced Pennant and

Scripty Sayings stamp from Lawn Fawn has crept in again...!
So a neutral card with a little colour.
Is it verging on Autumnal?

I will be back soon...I promise.
In between I need to check out what that youngest son of mine has been doing...

Take care friends.


  1. I love your neutral card! Certainly feels cold enough to be Autumn! I have the launch of the channel in my diary I am so looking forward to it

  2. Lovely to see you blogging today Christine, you must be so busy with your TV work for Monday's launch!
    Gorgeous card today, I love the lattice and colours you have chosen, as well as the Lawn Fawn stamps - my favourite at the moment!
    Not sure about Autumn just yet.....they say it's going to warm up again tomorrow, so we shall see!

    1. Hi Christine,
      What a beautiful card. I love the Lawn Fawn script, I think I may just have to have a look at that and add it

  8. Hi Christine, I know all the presenters and they are all fab-u-lous. I hope that Virgin get The Craft Channel, I can't wait.
    I'm loving your CAS card, it's amazing that I have been painting with Dulux Soft Truffle, and it is the same colour as your lattice die-cut.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  9. Hi Christine
    You look so comfortable introducing the channel - such a natural! Can't wait to see some shows! Best wishes, Anne O

  10. Hi Christine lattice dies are all about today with Tattered Lace introducing one but my Spellbinders one had plenty of use and I love what you have done here but can't think of Autumn yet as I am only just getting the case out to go on holiday at the weekend. I'll be back to see what you have been getting in a months time! Best wishes Jackie x
