Lemon Surprise

Hello again!
Todays card is a simple lemon card for any occasion. I love this colour. It is quickly becoming a favourite of mine. The flowers are ones I designed using the medium Kikyou punch. For the centres I used two of the small cosmos punches. A very simple flower. Then added a couple of ferns.

Framed flowers

I'd love to show you a beautiful framed flower arrangement made by my friend Angie. She has called these flowers Penny flowers. These are all handmade sculptured flowers and leaves as are all the flowers displayed on this blog. I received this for my birthday last Tuesday. They are so lovely in real life.

My Birthday and a little about me

Yesterday was my birthday and I had a fantastic time with family.
I also got my haircut really short from long. I feel rather bald but just in time for our beautiful hot Queensland summers.
I got a new camera for my birthday so hopefully my photo's are going to look more clearer.
I also want to take the time to thank you for commenting on my blog. I love to see comments from other parts of the world and to also see your blogs.

My DH Doug has made me a beautiful card for my birthday. He is such a talented man.
When I work out my new camera I will put it on to show you.
He has been having treatment for cancer for the last year and has improved so much that he is now in remission. We are both cancer survivors. Two years ago I had a double mastectomy for breast cancer. We have so much to thank God for. We are nothing without Him.

hi there!
Today I want to show you a fabulous card I got from my dear friend Patti Jo.
I just love it and how it sits. It's not my birthday until the 15th but I am so impatient when I get a parcel. Especially when it comes all the way from the USA. Yes! next Tuesday I will be a spritely 60 years old. I have photographed it twice to show how it sits. How neat is that? Thanks so much Patto Jo. You can see Patti Jo's blog

pink Haze

Hi there!

Today I have made a very pink card using the new spellbinders Labels six.
Down the sides I used the Spellbinders Grand 12" Classic lace border and just had half of it showing.
The flower was made from Penny flowers called a Double Daisy. It has a fringing in the middle.
The box is decorated with the cutout of a Spellbinders Scalloped oval and I just added Cuttlebug corner dies to it in the same colour.
