February's winning ticket, chocolate and sneak peek

Hello friends

Thank you so much for your die storage suggestions,
really great ideas.  I'm definitely looking into changing the way
I store my matting dies as they are probably my most used dies
(along with mini poinsettia and little leaves!)

The last day of February so I need to announce the winner ticket from
February's Charity Kit. 

And it is...

Please take a look and if you are the winner please email me
with your address details and I will then whisk out a goody bag to you.

The demos and samples for next week's shows are coming along,
I'll be doing Pick of the Day which is a lot of shows, two late night ones
and then a full day starting early - a fair amount of coffee required!

Here's a sneak peak of one of my cards and yes it's my favourite flower right now
and I've teamed the die cuts with Anna Griffin paper.

Today Elliott and I are heading to London as it is his six monthly MRI.
They come around far too quickly.

Once done it I'm sure we will need a treat, last time we stumbled 
across a cafe that sold amazing cakes and chocolates.
I have been considering giving up chocolate for lent ....
I'm thinking this rash thought will pass shortly though!

Right...pancakes first :)

Take care friends.


  1. Hi Christine and Elliott.
    Thank you for the inspiration.
    Good luck today Elliott.
    Take care Kitty.

  2. Hi Christine
    A very pretty sneak peak, I'm looking forward to the shows next week.
    Hope the scan goes well for Elliott, you will both deserve a special treat afterwards.

  3. Interesting sneak peek! Good luck at the hospital Elliott & enjoy the cakes afterwards.


  4. Gorgoeus card. Nice to hear you have lots of shows coming up. Good luck for today and enjoy your treats and pancakes xx hazel

  5. Good luck today. My old family priest used to tell us not to give something up for Lent but do something useful and nice for someone else. x

  6. Hello Christine
    Good Luck today, I will be thinking about Elliott and hope all goes well!
    As for giving up Chocolate, just think you are eating it for me to stop me having Migraines! Well thats the theory anyway!
    Love Marg

  7. Lovely sneak peak, well done to the lucky winner ,

  8. Morning Christine, A great sneak peek, I'm glad your prepping is coming along nicely !!
    Good Luck to Elliott and have a great 'snack time' afterwards.
    Talking about Lent, I drink that much coffee that last week I got the idea to give up coffee for Lent !! within ten minutes I had gone into 'panic' mode, so I think I had better think of something else to give up for Lent. We will be having pancakes tonight for Shrove Tuesday.
    Congratulations to the Winner.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
