Thinking of You with flowers

Evening Everyone,
No crafting today, just lots of tidying up and sorting out.
I also went and had a bit of a rant at a Flood meeting in the village this evening.
The road has finally been re-opened after 6 weeks. However none of the things that I asked about at last weeks meeting had been sorted, even though I was assured that they would be attended to. They obviously hadn't passed far enough up the food chain, so I ranted lol. Too late for some of the things now the road has been opened but at least I made my feelings known.
This is another of the cards that I made during my Blue/Brown phase at SirStampalot.
There is always something waiting to challenge me, this time it was the lovely floral panel stamp that you can see in the centre of this card.
I created a patchwork background with some scraps of card. See I really am trying hard to use up bits and pieces :O)
The individual stamped flowers and sentiment are from another of my 'challenge stamps'. They are all from Hero Arts, and I used Distress inks with them.
The paler flowers have been stamped using second generation inks, and the leaves are from a Memory Box die, all available from SirStampalot.
I forgot to put the washing machine on earlier, so I am waiting for it to finish before I can go to bed. (My bedding is all in it!!)
Never mind I can have a lie in tomorrow. I wonder if Janice and Andy will have gone back to their later starts now I am no longer there to give them a wake up call?

  1. Glad the road is open again now, this is a lovely card, i am trying to find some punches i can do this patchwork style with. xx

  2. I just used an EK Success square punch, but Woodware do square punches that would work just as well.
    Punches are much quicker to use for this than nesties although they would work if you have the square one.
