Another Cuttle'd Card

Good afternoon.

It's lovely and sunny here and I am beginning to think of spring, which could be why I have spent most of my crafting time today making flowers.

I enjoyed using my Cuttlebug Folders on yesterday's cards so I thought I would use one again today. I also used up some card from my scraps drawer - which is a good thing as it is just about overflowing.

I am entering this into:-

Cupcake Crafts Challenge - Flower Power
Crafty Creations Challenge - Make Your Own Flowers

This card is for a family member who is feeling a bit under the weather. I hope it helps to cheer them up.

Hugs, Clare xx

Hi Clare, this is simply gorgeous...I love the colour combi...and the nestie flower...I have a terrible habit of not embossing after cutting them...just lazy I guess...
I did see the call over at CSB...I don't think I could do it though...I don't work well under pressure, my better card's are the ones I make for fun really, and I still think there mag is way to advanced than I am...

I have been making samples for Secret crafters special day on's been a really stressfull week...and I don't want to see another card for a maybe not that
I am almost finished, I plan to visit Wendy tommorrow...I need to relax and have a conversation...I feel like the mad proffessor stuck in my craft room all alone all
Thanks for thinking of me though Clare...that was really nice

speak to you soon

I just wanted to tell you how much I love your card! For some reason, it seems that it is much harder to find Get Well cards than it used to be. Your flower is beautiful - this would certainly cheer up anyone's day!
