April Flowers

Evening Everyone
Have you had a good day?
We have been bathed in beautiful sunshine here, in fact it has been really quite hot. Oh well I've said it now so that will be the kiss of death to it lol.
We had another fabulous class at Davina's today where I showed them how to use the Punch Around the Page Punches by Martha Stewart and also how to create some 3D flowers.
As always we started the class with another Tag for their book, complete with written instructions for them to stick to the back of the tag as a reminder of what they have done.
I was quite amazed, and a little embarrassed to realise just how many of the Punch Around the Page punches that I actually own when I packed them up to take to class.
As an entire punched square wouldn't fit onto the tag I cut it in half, and this is the card that I made with the left over half.
I have used background papers from my stash to stamp and emboss the flowers,
and I have used a Hobby Art sentiment on the right hand side of the panel.
The flower centres are Card Candi.
The punched panel was spritzed with Goosebumps Texture Medium, I love that stuff, it is what has left the white splodges on the punched and sponged panel on the left hand side of the card.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges
Allsorts where they have 'A Passion for Flowers'
TTT Challenges where 'April Showers bring May Flowers'
Wags and Whiskers where they are looking for May Flowers.
I am hoping to catch up with some DT work tomorrow before the Grandchildren get back and I start my babysitting duties.
The 'Big Kids' are off to Alton Towers for grown up playtime.
I'll stick to watching TV with my feet firmly on the ground thank you very much :O)
Thanks for stopping by.
