John Next Door - Christmas - Release 2

 Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How has your week been. For some of us it is a long weekend. Being retired we tend not to do things at the weekend or on a bank holiday. But of course these are the best times to see our daughter and son-in-law. That is what we are doing on Monday. It will be nice to see them. 

Here are the samples I made for the second release of Christmas dies from the John Next Door range. The launch show is on the Craft Store on Sunday at 6.00 pm. I didn't get many of the dies to make samples with but the ones I did are beautiful. 

The NOEL dies and the frame are new. The Small Poinsettias and the Small foliage were in the first release. I have pretty much swapped over the Crafts-Too Linen card and gloss card and glitter card. 

There is a sneak peak of some papers on this card coming soon. 

I wanted to do the letters in a line. It did make a very long thin card. 

This has to be my favourite die set. The frame and the tree come together. 

I do love red and green on Christmas cards. There is another sneak peak for some stamps that are coming soon. I did foil the sentiment with my Kaleido. 

I do like gold and silver too. Really there aren't many colours I don't like. This reminded me of a programme I used to watch when I was younger called the Singing Ringing Tree. 

Can you spot the mistake in this photo? I put one of the cards for the limited edition kit and left one of the second release cards out. Oh well most of them are here. 

Have a good time.

Happy Crafting
