Flower Power

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend.  Actually saw some sunshine today and the temperature was certainly on the up.  Let's hope this cold and chilly spell is over for a while.
I did spend some time in my crafty room today.  I am busy trying to get ahead on my DT projects as my crafty room is going to be out of action from next Thursday for a week.  We are doing some decorating upstairs and having new carpets fitted in the bedroom.  So all of my crafty stuff is having to be boxed up and packed away for a week while the work takes place.  Will certainly be a pain not being able to craft for a week.  But on the up side I will be able to have a good sort out and finally arrange things how I want them.  Will try and remember to take some pics of the before and after.

Anyway, I did get this card made today which is another request from my sister.

For the image panel I used a lovely stamp from Little Claires.  I stamped it several times off the page to fill the panel.  I then coloured with promarkers and added some stickle dots for a bit of bling.  The papers were all in my scraps box so can't tell you who they are from.  I matted onto some purple bazill card.  Used a martha stewart punch for the bottom border and a spellbinder die for the sentiment tag.  A purple ribbon and bow finished the card along with some buttons.

Thanks for popping by and welcome to my new followers.  I hope you enjoy your visits to my blog.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.  Off to have a blogging session now.
