Saw a great card over at Blush Crafts by Vicky here http://blush-dolly.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/red-white-and-blue.html and had to give it a try it looked so easy yet striking. This is my version - thanks Vicky for the great inspiration.

Got all painty for the background of this tag and thought the carnation I made yesterday went well. I cut out the butterfly by hand as I couldn't find a stamp the right size. This tag is for a swap with my friend and I know she likes this style - good job I had an apron and gloves on when I made it though - I'm such a messy worker LOL

Wow, Clare is the queen of flower tutorials and put together a great video showing how to make a lovely carnation. This is my attempt and I'm really pleased how it turned out. Thanks Clare!
My DIL, Nicola, has been very busy rushing around doing a hundred things at once so I thought I'd make her a card to put a smile on her face. I love the way her arms move and the wheels she runs on!

Now here's a picture of a paper "Seedsman's purse" I made ages ago and forgot all about posting. I can remember the name of the tutorial because it was so unusual and I really liked how it turned out but I can't remember where I saw it and of course, the piece has been sent off to a friend at the other end of the country so I can't have a look to see how it was folded. I wonder if anyone recognises it? It was made from one sheet of 12x12 paper and formed a neat little pocket to hold some goodies which was then closed with the flap and tie at the top.
