So I am blogging the first of the samples for German TV HSE 24. there are two cards here mainly because I put an English greeting on the first one by mistake (as per previous blogs!) I was asked at the last workshop how many time I have a go at a card before I get it right. Well sometimes, if I am REALLY lucky, it all goes to plan on the first go, but mostly I have to do it two or three times. This one, however, took me many, many attempts.
I had the idea to do the star and knew the pattern, so thought it would be relatively quick - WRONG!!! I eventually got the pattern perfect, it is not easy to line it up perfectly (especially with my eyesight!!) and showed it to Simon who said that it wasn't square on the card and wasn't good enough to send in, so back for another few goes. Yaaaay! I got it centred and the pattern was good. Unfortunately, I had a tiny crease in the card which magnified to a big line once I had inked round the edges, so rather than do it all again, I put my greeting over it and sent it in....only to discover a couple of days later that it was supposed to be a German sample!!!!
So the second card is the same thing all over again!
