Flowers

Evening peeps,
Bit of a late one tonight, first ever Friday night post. Only because I haven't downed a bottle of wine for a change, but never mind!!

Flowery offering this evening. I bought these chipboard messages from The Range the other week, as part of a collection that's been discontinued - I think it's called Sugar and Spice. Thought they were quite cute so rather than put them away, time to be a bit creative.


The flowers are made from a flower shaped nestability, cut from 6 pieces of paper from the Quite Contrary collection from My Mind's Eye (love their papers) given away with a recent Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.I chopped them into 6 individual petals and made 6 cards in total. The ribbon stem is the 1" satin ribbon sold off in the Papermill closing down sale and the button is from my box, bought goodness only knows where and when.

Not really got any particular occasion in mind, just nice to send a note to a friend occasionally.

Will be starting my new address cards v soon - signed the contract yesterday, paying the deposit tomorrow, should be getting the keys on the 8th of June!!!
Have a lovely weekend everyone xx
