The Flower Challenge Reminder #50 - Use a sentiment

It’s the middle of a rather soggy November here in North West England and that means it’s time for a reminder about our challenge at The Flower Challenge and it’s an easy one this month, “Use a Sentiment

I’ve had a pretty hectic month with work and taking my Dad to hospital appointments and so I went for an easy option for my reminder card and used up some of the left over flowers and leaves from my original challenge card this month. This time I stuck to just the purple flowers. Sometime ago I made a bunch of card blanks with sparkle paste spread through a stencil and so fished one out of my stash for the base. Sentiment from The Paper Boutique and some foam tape to raise up some of the flowers, and job done! 

I hope you can all join in with the challenge this month, crafting has got to be a good way to take your mind off the current world chaos. Working for the NHS, I’m hoping that our service doesn’t get stepped down and staff redeployed to front line services again, which is looking increasingly likely, so for me crafting is a great distraction. Stay safe, remember hands, face, space, craft!

The Flower Challenge #50 Sentiment

November and the weather is certainly getting more wintery! Definitely time to stay snug indoors (not that we’ll have many other options in England from Thursday!) and craft. It’s time for our new challenge at The Flower Challenge and it’s an easy one this month, “Use a Sentiment

I made a bright card using two Altenew stamp sets (if I could find where I’ve put them, I could tell you which ones!) that I stamped and fussy cut elements from to arrange on the leaving card for a colleague, along with an old LOTV sentiment stamp. I used an Aall & Create stencil and distress ink to add some background interest, it is more orange in real life! It had to be an 8x8 card to fit all the messages in! 

As ever, I can’t wait to see your cards this month, check out our rules and if you can, please include our cue card in your post. Stay safe, remember hands, face, space to craft!
