Count down to Launch begins here! Competition Time!

Hi there!
Thanks for popping in!
Things are hotting up here above the garage, I can tell you!
Preppy – snippy – happy – dappy!
3 SLEEPS BEFORE THE LAUNCH OF OUR GROOVI GO !

This little demo, inspired by a masterpiece which Karen Jackson sent in, nearly sent me over the picot edge.
(Picot should be submitted to the Collins English Dictionary as a new urban swear word, 
synonymous with poxy, another affliction).
Here’s a sneak peek of one of the Tina Cox plates, included in the Groovi Go! Kit. I decided to teach myself how to lay out Groovi images in a box, in order to create areas for cutting out.
Like Karen, I just picked one single element
– the damselfly. 
A certain lady is celebrating her 80th birthday very soon, 
so I thought this would make a perfect little gift.
So I started in the middle, and just kept adding damselflies, 
turning the parchment, and making sure they touched.
Fast forward….simple whitework on the wings….
And then the games began…
Join me on Monday morning HOCHANDA 9am 
for a breakdown of the process.
Or maybe just a breakdown!
Snippy snippy snippy…
Necky hurty…
As Rosie always says,
how wonderfully satisfying is that lovely snipping sound,
click, click, click…
And what a sense of accomplishment when it is done!
My Mum will love it.
BECAUSE  I SPENT TIME MAKING IT FOR HER.
She will appreciate that more than anything I could buy her, 
I know that. 
Mind you, halfway through, I was going spare, wondering what possessed me to try something like this today of ALL days!!!
In fact, 
I think we’ll have a caption competition!
Post a fitting caption below, and we will pick a random winner on Sunday. I will announce the winner on Monday on Telly at 9am,
and will send you a £20 Clarity gift voucher.
Got to be in it to win it!
Love & Hugs,
Barb

  1. I am very intrigued about this new launch… Will have to check it out in a few days' time, I suppose!

    Great photo – your expression did make me laugh. As for the caption… "It was at this stage that Dave decided it was time to confiscate the scissors".

  2. I always enjoy the satisfying sound of snipping. I have just spent 2 hours cutting out about 200 butterfly shaped peppermint creams to go in the wedding favours for Saturday so my necky hurty too!
    My caption is "just wait till I catch up with Tina Cox, her and her snipping!" Xx

  3. Schnip Schnip Schnip! Who’d of thought schnipping could be so addictive and so much fun! Or, is it the coffee, oh no, the poxy coffee, shcent me over the edge again!
    Love the snipping Barb. Your Mum is going to love it xxx

  4. Your mum is going to be so chuffed when she opens your card on her special birthday.
    Glad you got the inspiration from one of Karen's samples, her parching is just mind blowing when you see just what she has made over the years.
    My caption is
    " Here Mickey I ain't half got the hang of this picot cutting I will be known as groovi goofy before long "

    This is beautiful, your lovely mum will be delighted to receive this and will appreciate all the hours spent achieving it. I hope your neck isn't too sore tonight. Now my caption is " don't stop me know, I'm having such a good time, I'm having a snip!"

  13. Your pic makes me smile so much, I can't tell you! I've been on the wrong side of those "proper" tutors in the past……my caption would be……."let the snipping begin, no formal training required 😉 – practice, just practice!" C xx

  14. Beautiful work. So much nicer to give something that time and effort has gone in to making rather than shop bought.
    My caption would be “All that piercing and pivoting is sending me a little bit dotty”
    You picture did make me laugh
