Say It With Flowers

Hope you are all well and enjoying your weekend.  I am having a busy few days at the moment decorating.  We are decorating my youngest daughter's bedroom and my craft room in advance of new carpets being fitted on Thursday.  At the moment all of my crafty stuff is packed away in boxes in the dining room.  I didn't realise I had so much stuff until I had to pack it away.  So much stuff that we are having to eat our meals on a tray in the lounge as can't even see the dining room table lol.  Just can't wait till Thursday so I can start putting things away and getting organised.

Today's card share was made using some free craftwork card stamps that I got with a crafting magazine.


I decided to stamp the flower image a couple of times onto patterned paper.  I was then able to cut them out and decoupage them up for dimension.  The papers were another freebie from a magazine (really ought to start writing down which magazines I get the freebies from).  I added some card candi to the centres of the flowers and also to the sentiment.  I finished the card with some ribbon, butterflies and gems.

I am now going to try and get round some of your blogs.  My apologies if I don't manage it but been painting all day so a bit weary now.  Thanks for popping by and for any comments you leave.  Would love to know what you think.

Oh hun, I had to smile at what you wrote about eating off a tray because you can't see the dining table for crafty stuff! I dread having work done at home for exactly that reason - the answer is to stop buying stuff, but that's soooo hard!!!

Your card is so pretty, what lovely papers! I love the butterflies and lush ribbon, too.

Have a fun time redecorating, it will look fabulous when it's done!

love Mags B (the other one lol!) xx
