Crafty Cardmakers 38.4 - Floral

By 'eck! Doesn't time fly when you're havin' fun....? LOL!

It doesn't seem a week since I wrote up the last CCM blog theme and here we are again!

So much lovely stash and so little time to play - I've really enjoyed this week and seem to have got loads done just because I had one day off?  Mad, but that's what it feels like. I even managed to slip one cheeky challenge entry in too, even though I think it was too late to be drawn.

This week at the lovely Crafty Cardmakers, our theme is 'Floral' which just means there has to be a flower presence. How much and how is up to you!

Our fabulous sponsor this week is Joanna Sheen

How cool is that?  Joanna is offering a £10.00 voucher for the winner of our challenge. Don't tell me we don't have some great sponsors....!

For this week's floral theme, I used a selection of blooms from 'Wild Orchid Crafts' and papers from stash in moss greens and pinks.

The punched edges and lacy border are all Martha Stewart and the distress inks both from Adirondak (Olive and Sepia). I coloured the organza ribbon, which had been cream, with the olive inkpad. 

The image, which is mounted on Bazzil, is my own digistamp, drawn from a photo of my husband and my granddaughter Ada.

Oh and Ada came out with another lovely little snippet for the memory box!

She went off with Mummy & Daddy to see Antony's family including the youngest offspring, Antony's sisters humongous baby,Frankie, who is about three months old.

'Little' Frankie was sitting on Great Grandma Joan's knee, having not long had his last feed and did a little posset, (...y'know, a little milky puke out the side of his mouth...) .

Ada, wide-eyed and horror-stricken cried out 'Nanny, Nanny....' to which Grandma Joan asked 'What's the matter sweetie...?'
Ada answered, 'Nanny! Frankie's melting.....!' 

Don't you just love them?
