Floral Spray. . . . . . .

Good morning everyone. Hope you are all doing fine?

Welcome to Jan Cook who has kindly pressed "follow". Thank you for joining our merry band.

Been missing a few days as had Nesta's Dad's funeral and samples for John's forthcoming shows to get to grips with.
I hope that John has got you all excited and eager about seeing his new range.
Needless to say, there will be some new stock added to my website on Thursday when its allowed to go live.

I did take the plunge and have been fringed by the hairdresser. Yes, Jackie, I am about half a stone lighter for having about 18 inches off my front elevation lol!!! Yes folks, I do have very long hair. Elaine, I cannot show a photo as I am in a Duck Protection Programme.

Now, those of you who have been paddling for some time know that I like a floral or two. This card, I made for a lovely friend and blog chum (so I hope that she doesn't mind me showing it) a few months ago when she had some sad news. 
No sentiment, as it was my way of sending flowers.

Cream, lilac, green and purple card
CE Aztec Flowers embossing folder
SB Bitty Blossoms (Just for a change lol!!)
Sue Wilson Chrysanthemum dies
Britannia medium rose die (For the fuchsia - see tutorial at top of the page)
SB Ivy Die D-lite
Various other foliage dies
Spectrum Noirs
Paper string

Doing floral cards are also a good idea for people in hospital as they are not allowed real flowers any more.

Talking of flowers, I am concerned at Maureen and Wendy's  plans to descend into my garden with the use of parachuting knickers. At least they won't be using Maureen's "smalls" as I think the resulting eclipse of the Sun would alert my security staff.
I hope your plans have been approved by the Health and Safety Executive ladies and that you will be wearing helmets, steel toe capped boots and fluorescent jackets (otherwise know as Saturday night in Wendy's household lol!!!).

Anyhoo, better get back to the samples as will have to be handing them over to Sir John tomorrow.

Be good.

Ps...........Jayne, you can see the blog post about the crutches and hedge by clicking here.

  3. Hi there Ang, absolutely stunning card, what an amazing amount of work making all those flowers, beautifully designed card, I'm sure your friend loved it and was cheered by it. Kate x

  4. Hi Mrs D,Absolutely beautiful and I am sure your friend was delighted with it.I hope all went as well as can be expected for Nesta and family.Stay healthy Love Barbara D xx

  5. Talking of fringes Carousel comes to mind Hope I am not now going to be singing that all daynow If you hear of mass stampede out of Donington that could be the reason#
    Absolutely love the card Flowers really are your forte

  6. Morning Amg,
    Wow! a stunner, I'm sure your friend loved it too.

  7. In answer to Kate's comment- your friend really loved this card. It is stunning and the picture doesn't really pay justice. It really is a work of art - and still on show! Hugs Christine x

  8. Hi Ang

    A very beautiful card. Love the design and the flowers are exquisite

  9. Hi Ang,
    The flowers on your card are absolutely amazing. They really are better than going to the florists as you made them yourself, so they are more special.

    The story about the crutches made me laugh so much! I haven't managed that yet but I admit I have been unsteady a couple of times and each time I've thought about your story and chuckled about it! To read it was brilliant! I can just imagine doing that!

    My knee keeps swelling so the most comfortable thing to wear is baggy tracksuit bottoms (very glam) I tell people I'm prepared for going for a run!

    Your blog is fantastic! If laughter is the best medicine I shouldn't need the crutches very long if I keep reading your blog!
    Take care and keep on laughing! xx

  10. Hello Ang,
    What a beautiful card! The floral bouquet is lovely as are the colours you have used! It’s really lovely! I like it - can you tell?
    Now Maureen can cause problems in that balloon! Air Traffic Control were involved last time - as I recall!
    Love and thanks, Myra xx

  11. Lovely card and beautiful flowers 😊x

  12. Hello Ang,
    What a beautiful card today. It really is gorgeous - I think we are all suckers for flowers. Hope you are keeping well.
    Talking of flowers, thank you Jayne, you have solved a dilemma. As Wendy and I float silently over the wisty I'll use a crutch to "hook" it up - don't tell Ang. By the way, crutches are a wonderful tool for tripping up people who annoy you!!! lol
    Myra, must you tell everyone about my run ins with the Authorities and, as I remember, you enjoyed the experience ha ha.
    love Maureen xx

  13. Beautiful card design and flowers. You definitely have a flair with flower decorating. Hope you will do more flower designs for us here in the pond!

  14. Stunning card Ang, love it,
    You having withdrawals now as F1 finished???

  15. A paper masterpiece Ang your flowers are so beautiful. I still have the card you so kindly sent me on display it is so pretty. I hope you sre not regretting having your hair cut. Too late now I know but I have just been reading how Anne Marie Hunkydory is having her hair cut short to be used for making a wig for a child suffering cancer or other hair loss. Good win on Sunday though the race was a bit boring!! Bye for now love from Jackie xx

  16. Hi Ang! Sorry I have been slow in checking out blog posts lately! Wow! These flowers are so beautiful - much better than a real bouquet. Hope all is well with you. Sounds like you are busy. Have a great day.

  17. NO ONE does flowers as well as you do, Ang! This is gobsmacking in every way!! Hugs, Darnell

  18. Hello Ang, WOW, this card is incredible. I have always been in awe of the floral creations you make, they are just gorgeous. Thanks for a good laugh too, the comments have all sorts of images going through my head. Take care everyone. Bx
