Good Morning my Crafty Friends,

My last post was the day before I went to London for a few days with my Sister to see Mama Mia. The show was absolutely fabulous, really enjoyed it although I was not feeling 100%.

Returned home on the Thursday, chest pain getting worse so went to A&E. I was admitted for tests & Pleurisy was the diagnosis.  Antibiotics and painkillers was the treatment and when the pain was under control, home to recover.

So here I am, hoping to be back tomorrow with my DT make for Dream Valley and then round to see what wonderful creations you have all been making.

Paper Flowers

Good Evening,

Thought I would share a selection of cards I made recently using Sketchy Flowers from DigiStamp Boutique which I paper pieced. The sentiments were from the Black Floral Set also from DSB

The paper used on this card is Boho Chic from First Edition

The paper used on these cards are Back to Basics IV 

I must say I got really carried away making these cards which are snapped up really quick.
Some I paper pricked round the image others I edged with sketchy lines.
I did make some using the poppy image but they disappeared before I got a photo, might make another to share some day soon. I'm on A/l next week so may get a chance then.
Can't wait as going to London to see Mama Mia with my Sister and staying over for a couple of nights. Must practice my singing & moves !!!!! 

I am going to enter:
