Minamilistic,tutorial,and a sweet kiss

Hi guys sorry for the late post but,its been one of those days today,firstly to my DT card over at creative craft challenge,were the theme this week is minamilistic,We got too choose,some beautiful,digis,and this is what I came up with.
I made a rossette,added some lace,and then used a Kanban die cut and attached the sentiment.
So we hope you can join us again this week,for our challenge,we had lots of lovely entries again last time so many thanks for your wonderful support. The link is HERE.
Next my tutorial for the slider easel card I made,hope you can follow this as I had no measurments I just went by eye,so here goes,







Here is the final card,if you have any problems,just email me and will be happy to help

So there you go,the finsihed card,I add ribbon to my,card slider which makes it easier to pull,and any additional,holes etc do before you attach to your main card,and you can also add a message,where,you pull up the card,like in my previous,post I forgot on this one,but you can easially add it later.
Now finally the NEC was amazing oh I had a wonderful time,met dawn,glitter girls,joanna sheene,stef,and howard he he,he asked to have a photo,done then asked me if I was married,ha ha,you can see the photos,here, Lisa went up to dawn for me I was too shy,he he,but had no need to be as tell you dawn is one of the nicest,kindest people you are ever likely to meet.

This was the second photo he asked lisa to take another one,ha ha,
Look at the chap in the background on the next photo lol

Tell you it was an amazing day Dawn was just briliant we were chatting for ages,Howard too he he,really loved every single minute of it,and will def be going again ,I bought myself a new,glass tonic mat ,card scarpbooking papers and lots of other odds and ends.
Sorry its a long post,Well I have not been on holiday for over,20 years,so think I deserved this day.
Oh thanks for my new followers,too bless you girls wow,have over 400 now,
Thank you all,love cherylxxxxx

Dolly Daydreams said...

Hi Cheryl , am playing catch up have missed so much of your work. First your DT card is lovely I do love a bit of simplicity and I just might take part . Secondly your slider card is amazing but even with instructions don't think I have a hope in hell ! Fabulous details, colours and embellishments you certainly are the queen of these.
