Why oh why do I have these brilliant ideas that do not take into account the fundamental flaw of if it can go wrong it does!!
I actually started this card with plenty of time to enter into the current Rudolph Challenge which is about to now finish if I do not get my skates on. As weather has been so nice I have been making the card outside on a small fold down table that I can easily move around the garden to follow the shade.
Had in my mind to make a sunburst design card so selected the needed papers and spent an afternoon rustling up 4 different pattern designs and then put to one side to continue finishing off with an embellishment and sentiment.
Decided that the one for the challenge would have a poinsettia on it and found my John Next Door stamp and matching die set and having stamped and die cut inside as didn't want to lug my big shot downstairs and out into the garden I then took the flower parts outside to adhere to the card base.
Cue the sudden east wind that gusted the said shapes into the air and deposited onto the gravel around the table. A mad scrabble ensued to pick up before another gust took hold. I did have 6 petals but could only now find five and then spent ages hunting for the last petal which should have shown up quite clearly. Couldn't find it anywhere and as I had put everything away up stairs I finally gave up looking and finished the card with only 5 petal layers..
Another round up of flowers in bloom in the garden.
Stay Safe and well and away from crowds. I am quite happy pottering around in the garden and in no hurry to stick my head up over the parapet even if rules are being relaxed as from Monday.
