Blue Flowers

Hello there...

There was a dreadful fire in a London tower block this week which touched my heart... Looking at how quickly the fire spread and the billowing smoke, I couldn't help but think of 9/11... So many lives have been lost and many changed for ever... My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved...

I haven't done much crafting for myself this week, though Pat and I did have a creative and busy afternoon on Wednesday, but today I had to make a card for a friend and neighbour who has a birthday tomorrow....

I pulled out my MFT stamps and dies for this one, citron distress ink for the BG and my copics to colour the flowers

I still have lots of those vellum leaves around - I cut tons for the wedding invitations I did so I'm using some here, along with a little silver thread and some Nuvo drops

Rather than just inlaying the centre, I wanted to add a little interest by tilting it and I'm pleased with the result... I hope she likes it too.

You remember I told you that we are off to The Netherlands in July to visit Stella as our husband's football teams are to play each other? Well, it seems the Mayor of Groningen was not happy about the match and cancelled it Lol! We are still going of course, everything had been booked and paid for but the guys won't get to enjoy a little bit of rivalry.

Have a lovely day and enjoy your upcoming weekend
