Sunflower Wishes......

 Do you ever stumble across a sentiment stamp and build a card around it?
I often do that, this is quite an old stamp of mine by Inkadinkadoo and I spotted it lying around and all of a sudden it was imperative to use it! I love the font......

So I used this daisy type flower stamp from the Rosie Posie set, I think the sequins look a bit like seeds....I stacked the leafy stem one on top of another so that it made the tall stem of a sunflower....

It's another bank holiday weekend here in the UK - amazing how quickly they come around when you are not going out to work and longing for a long weekend break. When you retire, days sort of merge into each other, and I'm sorry to say that Bank Holidays are a bit of an inconvenience really. I can predict confidently that on the Saturday of a bank holiday weekend I suddenly realize that I need my hair cut/go to the doctor/go to the bank on Monday. This weekend it was the hair disaster that struck. How can that happen? One day your hair is fine, falls perfectly into place when you blow dry it, the next day, something has happened overnight and you can't do a thing with it.

I still can't tell you about my new job. No fault of mine, but I am itching to get started now.

See you tomorrow and have a lovely long weekend if you are in the UK x


  1. Cannot wait to hear about the new job......

  2. Love the card.
    Bank holiday weekends never work well for me. I work full-time & have care responsibilities so a normal weekend is never long enough for some of the home tasks I need to complete but you can bet that anything that requires more than a day to complete outside will be scuppered by our wonderful British weather. The fence needed staining but we have had 3 days of rain and although it is sunny today, the wood is wet and there isn't enough time to get it all done...ho hum.

  3. I find since I retired that I hardly ever know what day it is! Life is just one long bank holiday - great for crafting! Love your card Enfys and that sentiment stamp really is something special. Pat x

    Beautiful sunflower card! I saw a Misti to this weekend at a scrapbook retreat. It is a great tool.

  5. Love your Sunflower card, it makes me smile, thank you for the smile this morning! Anxious to hear about your new job!

  6. Love your card, that is something I have never done Enfys! Probably never will lol. Know that hair feeling, its amazing, I have one good hair week a month, the rest of the time I would need to wear a hat!

  7. I love your sunflower! I think that I may even possess that sentiment stamp.

  8. Lovely card! I really like how you use the stamp and I will have to try it....nothing like having a great news to share and you CAN'T! pretty soon the excitement is going to fade and your going to forget to tell

  9. I thought I was the only one with those hair issues! I have suffered with "I need my hair cut ... today... now..." LOL That's the reason that Don first cut my hair! .He got tired of the whining. Lol and he does a pretty good job too! He used to cut his daughters hair when they were young.
    Love the card, and that font is cute. I, too, build cards around sentiments or images in my head. I never know where they come from. Have a good day, and hair cut tomorrow. Hugs, Jess

  10. Lovely card Enfys.Like the way you have created the sunflower and great sentiment.
