Groovy Fantasy

Hello.  Welcome.  Well, that was Christmas!  Hope you had a good one.  Hope you are relaxed, recharged, restocked and have survived all food and snacks and cheer.  Were you lucky?  Did they listen when you asked for pretty papers, packs of cards, dies, ribbons, buttons and bells?  Or did you get socks?

Actually I did get socks.  Some very nice socks.  Christmas socks to go on joyful happy feet.  After all they are very useful.  But so are dies and papers.  Hee hee, I got some of those as well!  Happy dancing in Christmas socks.  I did cover my bets by ordering my own and they arrived Christmas eve.  Oh, happy day.    Build a flower dies from Cheery Lynn and as usual they are better than I was expecting.  My Big Shot hasn't ever been used so much.  I have been cutting petals, sepals, anthers, leaves in colours too many to mention.   I started slowly but now I have a myriad of strange and wonderful flowers.


I know, very groovy flowers.  I got a bit carried away trying out colour variations but this is for a friend who is having a bit of a hard time so I hope these bright crazy colours will bring a smile.  I used a steel blue base card and added a layer of Bazzill dots Grape Jelly.  I scrunched some burgundy tissue paper across the middle of the card to give texture and interest.  The flowers were cut from Basic Grey Nook and Pantry Rolling Pin paper using Cheery Lynn Build a Flower 1 dies.  I liked the crazy dots.  I used purple construction paper for the centres and mini silver brads.  The flourishes are cut using Sizzix Flowers and Vine #3 and the sentiment is an Art Impressions stamp.  


Hoping to bring a smile with my groovy happy flowers.  Joining the fun at
