Clever Punches

Hi there!

Paul here, I hope you are all well.

Just had a message from Barb asking me to post 
her blog today as they don't 
have any WiFi in Macy's!!!!!
Mmmmmm, very strange!

Anyway, over to Barb!

Hi there.
Thanks for popping in.

The other day when I was prepping for the TV, 
I received a beautiful hand written letter 
from one of our lovely customers, 
Roger Smithies in Rochester.

He wanted to share some of his art with me, 
and to show me what he had done with our
Groovi Corner Punches.





How clever is that!
When is a corner punch, not a corner punch!

Wonderful artwork, beautifully framed
using our corner punches

Roger has used Groovi Corner Punch No.3
but I am sure you could do the same with all the others.

So, lets have a little offer and knock 20%
off the price!






If you already have the corner punches,
why not have a bit of a play and see what
you can come up with and share your 
results on the Clarity & Groovi Worldwide pages.

Love & Hugs,

Barb

  2. Wow fantastic cards from Roger. Great use of the punches. Fancy Macy's not having wifi! At least we know that Barbara has arrived in USA!

    1. That's funny I just said to Paul "Hope you are having special Mum/Daughter time"!!!!!! Aye head, body no working here today....

      Hi Paul, thanks for posting. Hope you are well, and not camped out at Clarity 24/7. You need your rest time too.

      Hi Barbara, Macy's as in Miracle on 34th Street Macy's? Didn't know it was real! A bit of retail therapy will do you both the world of good, especially if mum is paying!!!!! 😉 Hope you are having special Mum/Daughter time.

      Lovely cards Roger, very clever use of the punches. I have one, don't know which though, aye not used it yet... In my defence, I attach my parchment in different ways!

      I'll be thinking about you both all day tomorrow, and sending as much positive energy and thoughts as I can. Love you, and big bear hugs for you both xxxxxxx

    1. Hi bloggy friends - it's not been too bad weather wise here today, still rather chilly, but not much rain. I took Neill out today - so that we could both vote, He almost slipped on the wet pavement but luckily he managed to keep his balance! It was busier than I have ever since it and apparently attendance has been high all day - which is really good! Sending you all love and hugs, Gilly xxx

    2. Hi Gilly, lucky Neill didn't go down. Done my bit too. Love and hugs, Pam xx

  18. Brilliant idea, have all the punches, so will give it a try soon as I feel better, having lots of dental problems at the moment & pain killers making me feel woozy so can't concentrate. Love, hugs & healthy positive thoughts to Barbara & Grace xx
