This weeks new card

Evening all, hope you have all had a good week and are enjoying this hot spell we are having. I have had a bit of a better week than the last one, Andy and I went to the cinema in the week to see "The Wolverine" and I have to say WOW, it was fantastic. I love superhero films and Wolverine is most certainly a superhero. The effects in the film were absolutely amazing and Hugh Jackman was as usual magnificent in the role. We went to the small cinema in Woodhall Spa (The Kinema In The Woods) which is an experience in itself. I'm not sure if I mentioned it before but it is a fabulous little cinema that is stuck in a time warp and I don't mean that in a bad way, it is just like stepping into a the 1970's (when cinemas were still amazing places to visit) .
We then had a couple of rest days which got us ready for a trip to Tattershall, which is another small village just outside Lincoln. We were going to the opening of a new craft shop, and when I say new I really mean newly re-located from Coninsby. The shop belongs to Jo Channon who some of you may know from Create and Craft and her husband Mark. They have moved to a bigger premises and although not massive it is a lovely little building that feels a lot more spacious. The shop is made up of  4 or 5 small rooms and one of the rooms is a demo room.
For the re-opening Jo managed to get another Create and Craft favourite to come and do some demo's for her and that lady was the wonderfully talented Sheena Douglas. By the time we got there she had already done a few demo's and had stopped for a lunch break, so we had a look round while we waited for her to start up again. She did a couple of demo's while we were there but we couldn't stay very long as we were both in so much pain, but we enjoyed what we saw. If you are interested in seeing what she did you can see a detailed description at my hubby's blog (here).
We have just been watching the BBC to find out who the new Dr Who is and Andy is very excited as he had said during the day that he thought Peter Capaldi would be perfect and then low and behold, they announced him. Can't wait for the new series.
 So now on to this week's card. As you can see, I have been inspired by the wonderful Sue Wilson again. The base card is cream and on that is another piece of cream which is pricked around the edge. Then on that is a piece of brown, then a piece of cream cut into three and then I have used a Nestie frame with a co-ordinating stamp. I have then used some brown ribbon, a dazzler, another die for the swirls and some hat pins to finish it off.
Hope you all have a good week,
Bye for now,
