Blooming Marvellous .........


....... is the current challenge at Artful Times and as most of us use so many flowers in our pieces one I think everyone could join in!


....... and especially me ....
the flower-aholic!

I needed a card for a friend so made this from some bits and pieces which were sitting around the desk and added a doily and the lovely blue Pion Design Paper.  


I keep a stash of these flowers ready made to use on cards, nearly always cream with a bit of vintage photo edging.  They always come in useful.

So that's my entry for this lovely challenge. Do pop over to Artful Times and have a look Neet and Von's lovely pieces and also some super entries.

I hope everyone is enjoying some good weather or is it raining EVERYWHERE!

Oh stunning!! I always love your flowers, but I really adore how you put them together this time with the bits of cheesecloth and the stickpins!! Great card!

Not just raining but pouring here at the moment, - I wonder whether Spring is going to pass us by altogether this year...:o(

Perfect flowers as ever Jennie and with those pins and fabric, they look divine. I also love how you use the papers too - I need to take the plunge and have a go with papers more - find them a little scary to be honest!
(Pics of your holiday look amazing - sooooo brave!).
Hope you are well.

Completely lovely, Jennie - your flowers, as ever, are stunningly beautiful... and with these colours you were always going to win my heart - delicious!

We drove all the way from the Czech Republic through foul weather, but the very worst was the final stretch home from Dover... driving rain (one might call it, in the service of a terrible pun!).
