Plant a Flower - for Daring Cardmakers

This week over on Daring Cardmakers, the challenge is Plant a Flower. Pop over to see the lovely samples from the design team. 

Here is mine - playing around with pencils again, I used a Clearly Besotted stamp, then masked it to sponge in a distress oxide ink background. I die cut the oval using a Spellbinders stitched die, then a frame from the left over inked piece using the same die set. I used a tall thin card for a change - I rather like these, its quite effective to put all the elements towards the top of a card, and leave lots of white space below, but they are quite challenging to photograph

Not much in the way of news here this week, apart from a TV suddenly developing a multi coloured barcode over the picture. So that was a day gone, trying to phone the manufacturers helpline. Then another couple of hours getting through to the repair people they recommended (who did a sharp intake of breath when I described the fault, and recommended buying a new TV). Then another few hours researching the best TV's, followed by searches for the best deal.....I swear I have listened to so much canned music whilst hanging on waiting for a human to talk to, that I can't  get the dratted tunes out of my head!

So the new TV arrived. Perfect, super picture. But wait, it was too big for the console the old one stood on. Sigh.....back to the phone, back to more canned music and people telling me how important my call was to them. If I am that important, answer my call for heavens sake.....

The new larger console arrived in a coffin sized box, so a few not so happy hours were spent assembling it, the legacy of that is a very sore back. Not much time for cardmaking this week as a result of this, now I have projects to make, and no time to watch the new TV 😀


  1. This is a beautiful card! So sorry about your TV ordeal. Hope your back is getting better.

  2. What a delightful card this card is ... it's so colorful and happy looking. I know it will make the recipient smile immediately when they receive it. I can totally relate to your story of the TV and TV console, been there, done that (terrible experiences at the time, but I can look back with laughter now). Oh the stories I could tell - but I'll save you the effort of reading the book I would have to write to share them ... you're welcome! (wink, wink, wink). I'm glad your story has a happy ending and hope you'll soon be able to sit back, relax and enjoy your favorite TV programs. Hugz, Carol

  3. Your card is perfect--and certainly not indicative of a not-so-perfect week. I like the taller, slimmer cards, too. They are the embodiment of my personal aspirations--to be taller and slimmer. lol
