Making Tulips

 I haven't had much time for crafting obviously, so I am sharing with you one of the projects I made for the Fiskarettes Facebook page - I know not everyone goes to FB, so here it is...

I made the flowers by punching circles, then scored them, inked and folded over...

and the base of the flower was made by punching a scallop circle, I inked it in the same green as the flourish stamp (which is a really old stamp by ???)
Then cut off about two or three scallops to form a stamen, The sentiment stamp is by Inkadinkadoo 

A few of you have asked how the house move is going - it was going swimmingly, then just as contracts were on the point of being exchanged, along came one of those stressful hiccups that seem inevitable with house moves in this country - you are so dependent on other people selling their houses in the chain, getting a mortgage etc, that if they fall at a hurdle, so do you. So at the moment, we are well and truly snookered, hoping that in the end all will be well. So in the meantime, the stuff in the crafty cupboard is staying firmly on the desk instead of in boxes, and I shall carry on as normal - a bit blue, but it will all be okay in the end......

See you tomorrow x
