Uni and Fretwork Accents

Hello friends

Yesterday was a full day visiting Greenwich University with Elliott.  
The campus is absolutely stunning.
That's Canary Wharf in the background.

 The buildings are recognisable for being used in
so many films and TV shows - Pirates of the Caribbean, Les Miserables,
last week's episode of SS GB!

The sky was determined to be grey but at least it didn't rain.

Inside these buildings is modern classrooms and lecture halls.

We had a tour, opted for lunch in Greenwich and then a presentation of the 
course that Elliott would like to take, three years of Digital Media.
I confess a lot of the terminology went straight over my head!
I've decided he'll be jolly useful to the website though :)

And talking of website and crafty stuff here is today's card.
This is one of the new dies arriving next month - Fretwork Accents.

It is a cross design which I have die cut twice, white and silver mirror card.
Overlayed to create a flower design.  A pretty brad to the centre and
typed and die cut sentiment.
So this could definitely lend itself to Christmas couldn't it!?

Back to my cabin today to come up with more samples and demos
for my forthcoming telly shows.

Take care friends.

  10. Hi Christine
    What a stunner of a card. I'll have to look out for these dies. The University looks great, a bit like ours in Oxford steeped in history.

  11. Hi Christine, A lovely card !!
    The buildings at the University look awesome, and I can understand that they have been used in lots of TV and films.
    Enjoy your prepping.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  12. Love the card Christine. Pleased to hear you liked Greenwich Uni. Looks a lovely building.

  13. Lovely card Christine. Very pretty background paper and die.
    Our historic buildings are so beautiful, and aren't always appreciated. We certainly don't build anything like them nowadays.!! X

  14. Super pictures the buildings look so grand. We are certainly lucky with our heritage. Do the students appreciate them though? Like the card you have made but you mentioned the "c" word!! Best wishes Jackie x
