Day 8 - A little Springtime

Hello Crafters,

Thankyou for popping in for another dose of January inspiration.
Today I have another sample that I made for the Pick of the Day shows from yesterday.
This is a sample that I made and Nancy demonstrated it on the Tuesday evening.

 I used the Lacy Daffodil embossing folder and also the die that matched. They are both stunning and with such little effort you can create some gorgeous designs.
The embossing on the tag was made using the border die from the set and the pocket is the corner die,
the pattern has been really enhanced by gently rubbing a chalk ink over the embossed area.
Chalk inks are excellent to use for this purpose as they leave an interesting matt finish.
The tag has been simply tucked into the corner and the sentiment added.
I enjoyed making this and it is certainly one I would make again.
I hope that you can pop in again tomorrow and leave a comment for me if you have the time.
Bye for now
Jo xx


  1. A lovely classy card Jo, I've not used chalk inks on embodied areas before so will have to dig mine out and have a go.

  2. cheap ray ban sunglasses australia Willow cheap ray ban wayfarer sunglasses branches stood a few crows whine whining, I heard the screams of a small building, flew cheap ray ban sunglasses ray ban sunglasses sale australia australia toward the distant croaks. A moment later, a man came out, his hair disheveled, covered with dust, his face dark, deep-set eyes, scruffy beard, covered with flies. More disgusting is his hands, ten cheap ray ban sunglasses australia fingers nails which cheap ray ban sunglasses australia are all sick of red sludge.

  3. Lovely card and tag Jo , the colours are so uplifting!

  4. Hi Jo
    I love, love, love this card as Daffodils are my absolute favourite No:1 flower of all time & I adore every variety of them.
    Such a pretty card & suitable for so many occasions.
    That's it, now I'll have to get the T/L Lacy Daffodil Embossing Folder bundle & matching die.

    Beautiful card as always
