Well, it's the last day of the holidays for us, back to school tomorrow. Crafting will have to move way down the list of priorities when I am back at work and studying again, but I did manage to get time to make a couple of cards yesterday.

The Flower Shop card uses BG papers, Prima Crazy Daisies and MM and K & Co rub-ons and various brads. The canopy is simply scored and scalloped on the edge and looks really effective IRL.

The second one uses two backing papers, the green one is absolutely lush and I can't remember what it is or where I bought it but I would love some more if anyone knows. The lilac one is a Pink Petticoat free download and the scrolls just screamed out for a flower! I made the flower with strips of organza ribbon glued together with pva and snipped at the edges. The remainder of the flower is built up using various die cuts and punches and a white heart brad. I love these colours.

Off to the barbers now for the regulartory pre-school haircut for DS who moves up to High School tomorrow. Where did my baby go?????
