Good morning one and all. Hope that you are all fine and dandy.
Its been all systems go at The Pond with samples to be made for John, hooves to be serviced, car insurance renewal to sort and the dreaded tax return.........its all good fun!!!
I must apologise for some of the quality (or lack of) in my photos but the light was dreadful and I had to rush to get them in the post. It has been nice to be back helping Mr L again.
Now, I was a happy girl getting to go all floral again with John's new Blossom die..........you may have all noticed that I am partial to a flower or two 😀
Cream card, smooth and linen
JND Blossom die
JND Gerbera Panel (with flowers cut off it as I don't have the gerbera die)
JND Leafy Flourish
SW Catkin Stems dies
JND Loving Sentiments
Variety of distress inks
Burgundy satin ribbon
Jelly tot gems
I wanted it to look like a bouquet/bunch of flowers, hence using the catkin stems to form the stems of the flowers in the bunch.
All flowers were made with the blossom die except the burgundy ones.
I loved making this card and was very happy with how it turned out.
That's me for today as off to make some crochet pouches to send to Paws Across the Oceans. Its a group of crafters who are making items to go to Australian animal rescue centres to help the poor animals who have suffered so terribly in these awful fires.
A lady called Jayne has set this up on Facebook during the last few days and its gone mad. She has been on TV and radio as a result and lots of folk are helping out.
If you cant sew or knit/crochet, they are accepting donations of fabric or wool.
Hope that you all have a fab week ahead. More florals to come shortly.
Ps........... here's a snap of a beautiful sunrise I captured from my bedroom window a few mornings ago. Bought a smile to my face.
