I'm Barbara Sherwood known to my friends as Barb. Phill has asked if I would help out with keeping his blog up to date, as you all know he struggles with time, so I'll be sharing some of the cards I have made for his TV shows.
This will allow Phill more time to design and produce lots of new and exciting products for us all to enjoy, but he will still be posting on his Blog as often as he can.
I go to Phills' workshops in his shop every Thursday and have learned so much from him, you'll probably recognise some of his style in my own work :-)
Some of you will have hopefully seen my card samples on his Create & Craft shows, and many of you will also have seen me on his stand at Craft Shows.
I hope you will all join me on my new crafting journey (blogging is all new to me)
Well that's enough about me ..........
The card for today is one of my favourites..........

I started by cutting 2 layers for the base. The first layer being plain white card stock which I sprayed lightly with Mister Spray. The second layer is Chic Floral Paper, the top half floral with the bottom half reversed and embossed. I then put a divider by using a strip of Crochet Ribbon across the join.
Next I cut the dies, I used the two largest dies from Set B and the 2 largest dies from Set A
Taking the largest die from Set B I used P.V.A.around the edges. The largest die from Set A I decorated with Twinkles.
The next layer which is the second largest from Set B I left plain. The top layer is the second size down from Set A which I stamped with the Birthday Verse.
Finally I added a couple of stick pins to the top of the sentiment.
