If Friends were Flowers…


I’ve kinda lost my mojo a bit lately and I’ve been looking for it everywhere but I just can’t find it ;) I figured I’d force myself to sit down and make a card to see if I could kick start some creativity and the easiest way to do that is to follow a sketch. I picked last weeks one from Card Patterns, I substituted the buttons for flowers to match my sentiment and as I didn’t want to cover my patterned paper too much, I used a piece of vellum for the semi-circle panel with my new border on top. Oh the flowers were made from the 6 petaled flower from my Flowers 2 set which I curled a little and stacked onto a brad then backed with some leaves from my Branches 1 set.

So, your freebies today are the border and sentiment shown in my card, I hope you like them and will find them useful in your crafty projects :)

    Happens to the best of us….and you are one of the best – often wondered how you kept up with all that designing stuff.

    Love the cut file and card, do miss you and your designs and get withdrawal symptoms if can’t download at least one thing a week, have made a super card for my Mum with one of your older designs, looks stunning
