Making Flowers

Hi Ya! Happy Sunday to you! Hope you enjoyed your day of rest. Other than walking 3 miles in the park today with the heat and 75% humidity my day was just lovely. My hubby helped me with the cleaning chores by cleaning the tubs and toilets! whoohoooo. My two least favorite things to clean. He is just the BEST! Then Friday night and Saturday was so much fun because we got to babysit Grandbaby Logan. He is soooooo sweet. I loved every minute.
A little while back I won 9 packs of different colors of American Crafts 5x7 Cards and Envelopes.
I never make that size card so I had be a little intimidated, I decided that was just enough of that and got those babies out. I will have some to show you all week. This first two are basically the same card but one I used flat flowers and one crumbled flowers. I just tore circles with some card stock and some, I waded up til I got tired of that, then just left the others. I broke out some polka dot paper and the Janome Mini and got crazy. Hope you like. Thanks for your visit!!!!!!!
Cheers!

These are really sweet. I haven't tried this technique for creating the flowers but I really like how they turn out and will have to give it a try sometimes.
