Time to Flourish...........

Time to Flourish Card by Clare Charvill Graphic 45

It's a wet old day here but a glimmer of sunshine just walked through the door.  Beckie, Oli's old girlfriend bought a huge smile to a dismal day.  It was lovely to see her and have a catch up on all her news.  She's been a real busy bean :-)  
To say I was over excited yesterday was an understatement.  I've been looking forward to a delivery from America and its here.  Sent with oodles of Graphic 45 love from Portland.  Thank you Diane, Charee and Aimee once again for your amazing generosity.  

 I'm up to my knees in the Christmas collection but had to take time out to have a browse thought the pads.  If you haven't seen the Time to Flourish collection yet, here's a short vid and some close up pics of the papers.  

The whole collection is full of the most amazing detail and stunning imagery that Diane and her team of designers create for us to get crafty with.  Every page takes you on a journey throughout the seasons, and many of the pages coordinate with older collections too.  There's an addition to the collection time, a full 8 x 8 calendar pad and separate one with cut outs and patterns. A definite for the Christmas pressie list if you haven't ordered already. 

Talking of Christmas I have to head back to the Night before Christmas and get a wiggle on with our album for the retreat next week.  I've set myself a target of two more pages, cut out, instructions written and videos done before I head over to Daisy's Jewels and Crafts later for a jam packed Christmas Sleigh class.  Looking forward to seeing you if you're coming along. 

Have a lovely day and look forward to catching up again soon :-) C

  3. Morning Clare from a dismal and foggy N.E. Those papers are so beautiful and whilst i will get the 12x12 pad, there is no way that I'll be cutting into them; probably frame some to display around the house. However if I win the lottery i might buy a few more and cut into THEM. Enjoy your weekend and try not to work too hard. Can't wait to see your projects. Hugs xxPauline A
