Well firstly I would like to thank each and everyone one of you for your wonderfully warm messages of safe journey! We are now HOME and I've got to admit that whilst it was trying, the journey was worth it if only to be reunited with all my craft goodies which have been here for nearly 2 weeks! When I have more time I will hopefully add a few pictures we took along the way however suffice to say that the journey was mostly smooth apart from 2 hours of golf ball sized hail stones along with torrential rain through the Pyrenees on the Spanish french border. I think my little blue car is still shaking and checking his scratches as I write this! The remainder of today's pots is a scheduled one readied to go today as are the remainder of this week to give me a little breathing space. There may be something new on Saturday as the gorgeous new striplet from Sue Wilson i bought last week was waiting for me on the door mat along with a few other purchases i had made along the way! Once again thank you from the bottom of both our hearts for the warm wishes which I am sure helped make the journy, relatively, smooth!
Still on a summery kick with another flower, now I know I am not, classically, a flowery type of crafter but the simple effectiveness of these spellbinders create a flower dies really appealed to me. The Iris die is one of the easier to die cut at least as it uses a lot less petals than yesterdays sunflower.
I made up the Iris using Twinkling H2O's to paint the yellow onto the leaves, these show against dark cards so are perfect for giving a highlight on the purple. The ivy and leaves are cut form a sheet of shimmer card form DoCrafts from my stash and simply arranged around the edge of the ovals to balance the flower.
