Feeling Flowery

Wow, it's been a long time since I've posted. What in the world???

I've been talking with a lot of people lately about gardening. I don't get it. If I have to be outside during the summer, there had better be a great looking guy (preferably Robert Pattinson) fanning me with a giant palm leaf. If I can't have that, I flip the central air on and stay inside. Besides, I've been known to kill all kinds of plants. Sometimes I think I can hear them scream when I come near them. I think I'm actually doing them a favor by not participating in gardening activities.

I thought I would make a card featuring a flower that I wouldn't have to take care and couldn't harm. It was really simple. All you need is a little bit of Fascinating Petals and some imagination. I cut a circle and covered it with the petals. Then flipped over the circle and started cutting around the circle. You just have to be careful that your cuts aren't completely clean. Otherwise it will look too circle-y (new word). I cut a stem and some petals and there you have it! This card would be great as a sympathy card as well. The petals come in different colors too so if you don't like purple, there are other colors to choose from.

Connie is doing the Make 'N Take this Saturday. It's gonna be a good one!



  1. Welcome back to the blogging world. I love the flower card. You have a great sense of humor and show us the greatest cards. Keep it up.

  2. I like the flower card too and am going to try it. I'll let you know how it turns out. Thanks for showing it off. I'm actually surprised you had time for a post with all the hard work you've been doing in the store. I just want to tell you it looks great!
