Flower Bear


After the disappointment of last week of not getting Michael Buble tickets, I have managed to get tickets to 'Midnight Tango' to see Vincent and Flavia (from Strictly) at the Leeds Grand Theatre, next August - that way, as H is on summer hols by then, we can do a long weekend in Yorkshire visiting Alan's Dad and he can babysit, while we go out, yippee.

I thought i would do a non Xmas card today and after seeing the lovely Nikki's / Coops (thanks hun)amazing tutorial for a triple oval easel card on Crafts And Me, I just had to have a go and although i only have the Spellbinders Large Ovals, I will definetly use this idea again. The image is one I recently purchased, the papers are My Minds Eye - Tickled Pink (a combination of 6x6 and 12x12 papers), Swirly bit is Memory Box - Macarena Corner, as i didn't have a swirl that was small enough. Flowers are cut with a Fiskars punch, Sentiment - Stampin Up - Oval All, but not cut with punches, as i couldn't find the scalloped punch !!!

Oh lucky you Sam, the 'Simoni' in the flesh, I so love to watch him and Flavia strut their Latin stuff.

What an unusual shape for a card, it's really very eye catching and pretty.

All packaged and gone to the post room.
