Crafty Cardmakers - floral


Huge apologies for being such a RUBBISH blogger recently - I've just been so busy!  Last week I had orders, and a demo on Saturday that I had to prepare for.  I was sooo nervous, I always am, but always end up having a good time - some lovely ladies came to the demo and Donna was also demoing so it was great to chat with her.  Jo Channon was demoing too and she was really lovely, and far better at demoing than I'll ever be!  So, I'm playing catch up with you all now - I'm going to have to get a blog list on here so I can keep up with all my favourites.  Please don't think I'm ignoring you if I haven't managed to visit for a while!

Anyway, today is a new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and this fortnight we'd like to see your floral creations.  Now, my original idea was completely different - I had an image all coloured, then I've been so busy I didn't get chance to put my card together... when I finally sat down to do it I couldn't find the image I'd coloured, it's disappeared!  I'm fully expecting it to turn up today, now I don't need it obviously!  I didn't have time to colour anything else, so I've made this (embarrassingly simple!) little set of 5" square cards, with flowers and big gems from my stash, and some new Dovecraft papers.

As there's 3 of them, they fit the '3 of a kind' challenge at Ooh La La nicely, so I'm entering them there.
