Boho Blossoms and Five Petal Flower Punches


What a fabulous long weekend (Queens Birthday for those of you outside of Australia) it has been. The weather is as always this time of year, just perfect.

My friend Jill and I had our market stall yesterday, boy it was really quiet. Lots of people away camping was more than likely the cause. Still, Jill and I enjoy ourselves anyway, chatting and having coffee and discussing future plans for JeMbellish.

While I have been busy working on a secret project (you will have to wait a couple more weeks yet before it will be revealed) I have managed to whip up a quick card for today's post.

For this card I decided to pull out a couple of punches I haven't used before. Stampin Ups Boho Blossoms and the Five Petal Flower punches.

I made this a square card because I wanted to use up some of the Stampin Up 6x6 designer paper pads that I have that my wonderful Mum, Shirley- Anne, sent up to me a while back.

The flowers and stitching on the pink circle behind the image have been hand drawn with a white gel pen and I also drew some detailing around the edge of the scollop circle with a pink stampin up marker.

I am linking this card up to :

Cardstock - Barely Banana and Whisper White from Stampin Up
Designer Papers - Pattern Pack II Designer Series Paper from Stampin Up
Scollop Circle Die from Stampin Up
Sentiment from Kaszazz

Earlier this week I received this award from Lisa over at Mess2Magic. Thanks Lisa it was really sweet of you to send this on to me. Sorry it has taken me so long to play along.

The rules for this award go like this:

  1. Thank and link the person who gave you the award

  2. Display the award on your blog

  3. Tell 6 lies and 1 truth about yourself or vise versa

  4. Nominate 7 others and leave a message letting them know

Here is my list of 6 truths and 1 lie

  1. I'm a cat lover (I like dogs too)

  2. I miss my family

  3. I'm ok with turning 40

  4. I have travelled all over the world

  5. I could do with losing a few kg (diet starts the day after my birthday!)

  6. I love blogging

  7. I once flew over the local mountain range in a bi-plane
See the end of this post to find out which one is a lie!

I would like to pass this award on to the following people, some are blogs I love to visit every day and some are new followers to my blog.

My Birthday Blog Candy is still running (finishes on the 21st June) click here to enter.

Oh, I nearly forgot........... the one lie was about travelling all over the world, I have never been outside of Australia!

Thanks for stopping by today.
