Paper Floristry...

My turn over on the Craftwork Cards blog again today, here's one of the cards I made for their recent launch of the Paper Floristry kit on Create and Craft TV. I love making flowerpot cards, and all the little blooms just cried out for one......

I just love this colourway, don't you?

I told you I had a few nice surprises, how clever of the postman to bring me these two cards all the way from Florida on the day of my birthday! From two of my craft group over there, Cheryl and Bev, I really appreciated them making me cards and sending them all the way across the Atlantic. Miss you both lots!

We live in a small gated development, so any deliveries have to be announced by the driver via our entry phone. The phone kept ringing! First of all was this gorgeous bouquet from my crafty partner in crime Kath, totally unexpected and quite delightful. Thank you Kath (the flowers have opened over the weekend, and are the perfect colour for my kitchen) 

and from friends Dick and Gilly.......

and from son Edward and Lidia. By this time the house resembled a florists shop and I was running out of vases.......

The bell rang again. More flowers? No, it was a man delivering a Stannah Stairlift. Now for those of you not from the UK, this is a company that makes motorized chairs that transport you upstairs. They advertise constantly on daytime TV, showing happy smiling (old) people sitting on their chair moving slowly and safely up the stairs. For a mad, panic-stricken moment I thought my children had bought me one for my birthday (they would think that was very funny), but no, the delivery man had the wrong address. Breathe.

See you tomorrow x


  1. How timely that the delivery man had the wrong address on your birthday! I can only imagine the thoughts that went through your mind at that moment. Bet this story gives your kids a laugh.

  2. Gorgeous flowers on your card and IRL too, lucky you. That made me laugh about the stairlift x

  3. Beautiful card Enfys and such a lovely lot of flowers for your birthday.
