Flowers for my friend

After an afternoon spent stamping, and with the help of the clever and talented Debbie P, I have a potted present to give another friend tonight. This lady and I have been friends for more years than I care to count, since starting school together, and she loves pink flowers. Debbie found a tutorial for making the pot, and I raided her stash for pink paper and inks. Funny how the plans I had for using another flower image didn't eventuate??? My favourite SU Eastern Bloom just looks right to me. Two of the flowers are embossed with white, and two with pearl. The details are picked out with silver and white gel pens. All the leaves are courtesy of Debbie who patiently punched out ovals and scored them down the middle, but its hard to see them in the little gaps. I tried out my new Versamark chalk stamp on a piece of acetate for the sentiment. The ribbon came from the busy room and was j-u-s-t long enough.


  1. Just gorgeous!! I love the Eastern Bloom set too and how you layered the flowers is perfect... and such FABULOUS details! I'm a Debbie follower and SO enjoy her kind heart... :) Love your blog... SMILES! Michelle :)

  2. Hey Carolann - you've done an AMAZING job with this - it's inspired me to give it a go too!!! It was soo much fun having you over yesterday - we'll be doing it again soon for sure!
