Birthday Flower

Good morning fellow bloggers and crafters. It was quite sunny first thing but  I'm just looking out of the window and watching the most enormous black cloud approaching. I hope it drops it's downpour soon because later this morning is my friends funeral and we don't want to be caught in that.

My Card

My craft room is in such a mess that I decided to have a clear up yesterday. The result is that it is ten times worse at the moment and there is a barely a clear surface anywhere!! However, I did find this packet of flower shaped cards and I have no idea when or where I got them. I covered the front with a scrap of paper from my bit box which is called "Sangria Afterglow Petite" by Karen Neuberger - the edge was still on so I could easily identify it. The sentiment circle is from Craftwork Cards and the the pink flowers were in my box too. I have a feeling these were bought from Lakeland many years ago. I have just noticed that it has slipped and is now wonky, so I will have to correct that. A few pearls from my stash finished an extremely quick card.

Well that's all for today. I am not looking forward to the day ahead, but it must be faced. 

Hope to be back tomorrow with something a bit more imaginative - if I can find room to work! LOL.

Love and hugs from Christine xx

  18. Hi Christine, I hope everything went as well as could be expected yesterday, so sad. As for clearing up craft rooms, the same happens to me and I end up in a worse state than before! I really need to take the time to completely empty it, rearrange it and put it all back neatly, but that would be a good few days craft time lost..what does a girl do? :) I love your card, so pretty, hugs, Carole Z X
