A huge thank you to Lyn and Karen

Karen Richards Concertina Book Album 

This is a special post today as a huge THANK YOU  to two very special ladies.  Back in April I asked my lovely friends Lyn Jones and Karen Richards if they would make some samples for the G45 show on Create and Craft in April.  It really stretches your creativity to make all the samples for the shows  and having done it quite a few times it was lovely to have some support this time and to be able to showcase Lyn and Karens work too.  The show flew by so quickly we didn't get a chance to share all of the fabulous pieces on air so today's post is Lyn and Karens, who together are the Creative Spirits.   Take it away girls ……….. x

  1. Oh these are lovely and what talented friends you have Clare!!! I spent the afternoon making a pop up card with Botanical Tea papers!! Since my mom is gone I gave it to my neighbor as one friend wishing a Happy Mother's Day to another friend!!! She was absolutely thrilled with it. I forgot to take a picture so will have to borrow it back or take my camera across the street and take a quick pic!!! She gave me a big hug and said oh my gosh I will keep this out and look at it all the time!! Anyway thanks for sharing your friends beautiful works, talk to you soon.

  2. these are stunning and so beautiful made.

  3. Hi Clare, What a super idea to show us 'up close' the wonderful card samples which you and your friends produced for the C&C show.. Like many viewers,I am always trying to get a look at your samples whilst the sale pitch is being spoken. I always feel sorry for guests when they have put such hard work into producing their samples only to be (in some cases) quickly discarded and yours are so detailed and inspirational that it's a delight to see them. Thank you Hugs Pauline A x

  4. Hi Clare, Karen and Lyn your projects are stunning !! well done, Clare, for showcasing them for us.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  5. lovely ideas for cards and projects using the wonderful G45 papers. Well done to Lyn and Karen.
