Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

I went to see John Lockwood demoing at Chatham yesterday, and it was brilliant I could watch him all day, and every day as he is so very talented , and a lovely person too.
My Daughter, and her fiance took me, and my hubby, and afterwards we went for lunch.
While there my Daughter bought me John's media plates  wasn't I a lucky girl.
Got home very tired though.

Couldn't sleep again last night because of my RLS it seems worse if I am over tired.
Didn't get much sleep either Saturday night with the excitement so I expect that was why I was so tired.

So last night I started this card, and finished it today.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
I started by matting, and layering my card with pink card , and Ivory pearlised card.
Then I die cut a Nbus die from Creative Crafting World Doily Die set that I bought from C&C.
The Thinking of you also came with the set, and the flowers were made with another part of the set.
Quite pleased with how this one turned out.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

So pretty and feminine, beautiful design, those die cuts are gorgeous, this is a lovely card Jenny.
Glad you had a good time on Sunday at the Open Day, I went for a little while with my sister, couldn't really get near the demos though as we didn't have very long there! Did manage to buy some stamps though! :))

Beautiful card, Jeeny, gorgeous colours.

Sounds like you had a great time at the demo and what a lovely treat from your daughter. Hope you get a good night's sleep tonight. xx

What a delicate & lovely feminine card this is, with the sweet doily die. The dimensional sentiment stands out so nicely, but your pretty flowers and ribbon twirls just add that touch of elegance. Loving this paper too, as well as the tiny pearl flowers as trim. Nice bling with the blue rhinestones. How good of your kids to treat you to such a marvelous day. Hoping the RLS will leave you alone so you can rest better. At least you are productive when you can't sleep! TFS & Hugs

A very pretty, delicate and feminine creation Jenny, it's perfect for your Think Pink theme at Allsorts challenge, many thanks for joining us.

Sorry you are in pain, sounds like you need to rest - I know it's not easy and we are our own worst enemies, but know only too well what it's like when you don't get a proper nights sleep.

But pleased you saw John demoing, he's great to watch and has such a laid back approach to crafting.

A really pretty colour in lovely colours. Sounds as if you really enjoyed watching John demonstrating and I'm sure you will have fun with the mixed media plates. Take care, no fun losing sleep and takes a bit of catching up now and then.
