Hi guys! Still feeling under the weather, but did manage to get out of bed today, even answered a few emails, but not caught up on them all yet. Thank you for all your well wishes, they mean so much. I know that you would understand if I missed a blog post, but I have to blog, it is so much a part of me now. I am putting off the comment game drawings until I feel better as that does require more energy than I can muster at the moment. I hope you will understand. The good news is that there will be loads of winners when it happens! For today's card, I started with kraft card and cut all the aster flower toppers out of it in a random pattern. I repeated the smaller one. I stamped my sentiment in the lower corner and wrapped some Bakers Twine around the card above my sentiment and tied it through a button. I used a white gel pen to make faux stitching lines around the edge and all the flowers. I cut out matching flowers out of black and took off the inside petals on all of them. I used a black and white decorative paper to put behind the kraft card and show through my aster flower openings. I placed the black flowers over the matching flower cut outs and added a fancy button in the centre of each of them. I pierced the edge to complete the card.
The last of the cruise pics as I didn't take too many, but Nigel and Leonie and the rest of the C & C crew were enjoying the final night dancing and having a good time.
