Sunflowers for Heidi

At the beginning of September it was Heidi of Simon Says Stamps Birthday so I made a Simon says Stamp Birthday card for her.

The wonderful flowers which I usually used for daisies are now sunflowers, I used yellow card but used an orange inkpad to make some shading in the centres. I also did that for the centres but obviously not with orange.

The Cluster of Leaves which I use a lot especially on 12 by 12 scrapbooking did get cut up a bit to fit my card.
I used Stitched Rectangles for the white centre mat and I stamped Happy Birthday from their stamp sets but I made this card a while ago I know it was a Simon Says Stamp set but for the life of me can't work out which one.

The patterned paper is MFT and the Scallop mat is Avery Elle.

Last weekend we went away to Norwich we had never been to Norfolk at all but I think we returned and I arranged to met my crafty friend Marianne and Hubby. We went for a meal but to be honest we could have eaten anything we were that busy talking. Graham took a pic which I have downloaded from FB.

Trouble was I woke on Tuesday morning with a sore throat which lasted a couple days, just when I felt ready to go and make some cards one of my dodgy shoulders decided it would have a bit of meltdown so more forced resting. Its not quite right but its better than it was and just have to be careful not to over do it.

But I have piles of cards with inserts now but from now on when I photo a card I'm going to put an insert in and not wait till I nearly have hundred cards. Once I found where the safe place for my Christmas card I had a count up and I'm still halfway done, so be warned Christmas cards need to made as often as possible.

Sunflowers are a fave flower of mine and I love how you've created these from a different die!

Hope your shoulders recover soon. I had good intentions of doing inserts as I along . . . that resolution went by the wayside along time ago! LOL!

Good luck!

Hugs, Sarn xx
