A wheelbarrow full of flowers...

Evening all...

Sorry for the lack of blogging this past week.  I've been off work ill, i've had some horrible bug which really has knocked me for six but I am back and feeling back to my normal self!!

So...before my leave of absence I was telling you all that I had lots of commissions coming in left right and centre.  Well I've finished them over the weekend - and now guess what? I've got four more! It just doesn't seem to stop and I love it!

So my number one fan ordered a birthday card for her Grandma and Grandad after seeing the ones I made for my other friend.  As it was for her, I knew I had to make them extra special - so I set to work.  Tonight I am going to show you the "Grandma" card.

I knew that if I wanted an extra pretty girly card I know I had to use my Pink Petticoat stash.  I used an image of a wheelbarrow stocked up with some beautiful flower pots which I coloured in using Promarkers.  I love the prettiness of the yellow its so fresh and bright without being too in your face.  I used kraft card and another Pink Petticoat release - daisy bouquet in daffodil.  I finished the card off with my homemade sentiment ribbon, some button twine and a couple of adhesive pearls!

I liked the outcome so much, I recreated it for my mums friends Birthday in pink!

For this card I used a sentiment tag which I stitch on when stitching the background. I really like these, I think I'm going to be using them more often.  I finished this with bakers twine and a beautiful bright pink button.

So what do you think?

I hope you're all ok! I've been keeping up to date with all the blogs - they've been cheering me up whilst recovering.

I'll be back tomorrow, with "Grandad's" card.

Take Care
