Creamy lilacs and Pink Roses for my Mum...

Well!   It's not her birthday 'til Friday but my Mum just HAD to peak which means I can put it on my blog early!   I couldn't attend :-( Jane Gill's class on Lilacs but my mate SarahK did and she showed me how to make them - but I like cream lilacs as well as lilac lilacs.   Pink roses and the other flowers (absolutely no idea what they're called!).    It took me a while, but I was really very pleased with the finished product.

Floral Punch Craft is time consuming and beautiful and I must confess to only really sending these cards to people who truly appreciate the effort that is put in; but once you've learned the basics a lot of it can be done on a tray in front of the tv.

Hope you like it!    HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUM XX

Phew finished it!

My boss is leaving and I was asked to make her leaving card.    The mojo is missing just a bit at the moment, so of course, I've left it all to the last minute...   The roses and other flowers I made from a Craft Creations pearlescent paper stack, the leaves are a Leone-Em punch, deeper purple card is Bazzill Forget-Me-Not, the sentiment was produced on my lappie and cut out with Stampin Up punches.  I even made the box myself....  Doesn't look to bad even if I say so myself!
