Lyra die

Hello All
The BBQ went very well. The rueda lesson was great fun, with over 100 people joining in! I call it Scottish dancing or Barn dancing  to Salsa music. There is a "caller" shouting out the moves and the rest of us do that particular move and pass partners on etc. It's brilliant when it goes right and a laugh when it all goes pear-shaped
I am very flattered that some of you want to "borrow/use" my "Growing Together" design and yes - feel free. I don't sell my cards on a commercial basis, so no problem at all. I made it originally for a friend who was moving in with his girlfriend

Today's card is for a friend who loves my Art Nouveau cards and Rennie Mackintosh designs
5x7 card blank
My Craft Studio Art Nouveau cd 1
Sue Wilson Gemini collection - Lyra
Black card lightly scored with a Hougie

 Another variation with Sue Wilson New York collection - Times Square added

Quick note I am meeting a blog friend Maria A on Saturday. I met her through Sandra's blog (I think you all know this one) here. We are meeting in John Lewis coffee shop in Watford at 10.30ish. if you're in the area, please come and join us for a natter
Take care eceryone

    another wonderful creation.
    So perfect for the person who loves that era.
    The Gemini Die works so well for that doesn't it.
    Would love to join you for coffee, but sadly too far from me.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
