Hi everyone,   I hope that you have really enjoyed this glorious weather these past few weeks, but have still had a bit of time to craft and play too!  I spoke with my daughter earlier and she said that the weather in California was damp and overcast with a few showers too.  Imagine that, England's weather is better than California's!  Could this be global warming turning the tides, making all the cold places warm and the warm places cold?  Who knows?!  Even though we have had this amazing weather, I did still spend a bit of time in my craft room making some samples for an upcoming POTW, but alas, I cannot show them yet.  So I have been combing through some previous samples I've made for past shows that haven't made it onto the blog for some reason.  This Native American sample is one of the cards that I made when I was "winging" it last month.  The POTW had sold out in record time so C & C brought back their exclusive dies to finish the shows for the week.  I put this card together for a demo in between shows.  I rather like the way it came out, all things considered.  It is showing several really great techniques, the out of the box, faux stitching  and the faux leather masking tape technique.  I hope you like it!  All for now, Sue x
