Less is More week 129-theme-FLOWERS



All right folks, own up, whose hanging on to that storm?!!!! We need one to clear the air down here, Friday and Saturday were lovely and I even managed to catch up on the dreaded housework  :)
I've got three cards to show you today, come and see: This week's LIM challenge is
For our THEME this week 
we would love to see
Hand made Flowers
You may use any medium you like... felt, paper, card, acetate, fimo, embossing powder, whatever you can conjure up!

I made two cards, for the first one I made a ribbon flower and used paper clay to make the leaves.



                 For the second one I punched out some flowers and used liquid pearls for the centres.


Finally I made a card using the House Mouse cd for a friend's birthday who likes cutsie cards.


I had to go to the dentist at lunch time to have a crown put back and thank god for mirrors. I had to wear goggles during the appointment and before I left I popped to the loo and looking back at me in the mirror was a PANDA!! The goggles had fogged up in the heat and my mascara had ran and there I was chatting away and no one said anything:)

Thanks for visiting it's much appreciated:)

They're all beautiful designs, Val. Being a flower lover, I have to choose your first card as my favourite. I love your idea of using paper clay for your leaves. I bought some and haven't used it yet. But your leaves have inspired me.
We were woken this morning at 6.30 with a loud bang. The thunder storms have definitely arrived here xx

These are beautiful but your ribbon flower one is the show stealer for me ! x

Monica said...

Thanks Valerie for the visit and telling me what paper clay is... I live in Indonesia and much as we do get craft supplies here (at a great premium) we don't have the same range as the West.
Happy crafting,
Monica
