Floral Thanks


This card is for three challenges:

Case Study, inspiration provided by September muse, Kathy Racoosin:

Paper Smooches SPARKS Trendwatch:


And colour inspiration courtesy of colourQ:


I'm a bit last-minute with this challenge, because yesterday I decided (after months of thinking about it) to convert the spare (tiny) bedroom to a craft room, so while DH was out with the dog I set to with the hammer and screwdriver, dismantling a built-in bed, removing doors, etc. and by the time he got back the room was pretty much gutted.  He's kindly offered to do the decorating - he can't wait to get rid of all my tat crafting stash from around the house.  I haven't told him yet that it won't all fit in.  One thing at a time ;)

  1. Delicious, Shirley, the colour on the bloom is gorgeous, almost texturey! How wonderful a whole craft room ... does the one thing at a time include an extension to fit in all your stash?? Anita :)

  2. Ha, ha! Lucky you. My hubby would sympathise. I've been thinking of using spare room upstairs, but it's impossible even with air-con in summer.
    I love your card - very different colours - the blue frame is gorgeous and I love the neutral colour of the leaves.

  3. The 'stitching' around the label has such a impact!
    Beautiful card!

  4. Love the faux stitiching Shirley - beautiful use of the ColorQ colors! Love your "decorating" story! It will be so nice to have most of your stuff in one place.

    As far as DH goes....well I'm sure we all have our significant others on a "need to know" only basis...right?

  10. Now that sounds like some super fun news - does anything beat a new craft room? Hmmm, maybe some new furniture and baskets and shelves. And of course some new stamps. And dies.
