The Flower Challenge #68 Use a Number


Hi there crafty friends, we have a new challenge for you over at 'The Flower Challenge' and this month it's 'Use a Number', as well as the usual flowers of course too.

The talented Kailash is our Guest Designer this month, see our blog to view her amazing card!

Here's what I came up with, hope you like it. The rest of the team have made some fabulous cards too, see our blog to view them all.

So sorry I haven't been leaving you all comments, my health hasn't been great lately, then I had a fall too.... but I will visit you all asap. I promise. Just to say I really do appreciate all the lovely comments you leave me.... each and every single one !

We did get to finally celebrate Easter with all our family in the end too, pics at the bottom. I thought I had hidden about 135 small choc eggs but we stopped counting after they found about 180ish! 

A few pics of our garden also which looks so pretty in Spring I think and smells of bluebells atm. which are everywhere.  Er and Yes my OH IS obsessed with garden ponds ;)

Now come and see my card and of course....enjoy your week whatever you have planned ;)

Viv, I'm so sorry you haven't been feeling well - and a fall on top of that? I hope you're feeling better now!
I love your gorgeous 50th birthday card, delicious cake [with my fave Cadbury eggs!], darling kids and extraordinary gardens! I'd give anything to have a pond again!

Viv all these photos again reminding me how much I want to come over and visit your amazing garden. And I think I would be in for a treat or two from one of your amazing cakes. Now you have topped it all with that amazing card, so beautiful to look at. Keep healing my sweet friend hugs Aileen

Your card is stunning, Vee, and I love the cake! Thank you for sharing all the wonderful family pics and those of your award-winning garden ... I would never be in the house except to sleep! I'm very sorry to learn you've been ill and that you had a fall. I hope you are well again soon! Love and hugs, Dee

Love that vivid watercoloring of the florals , Viv, a beautiful 50th card for a lucky someone! It was so fun to see part of your Easter celebration with the kids and That.Cake. Wow, you are so talented in many ways, obviously including gardening. What a divine place with so many beautiful features. I hope you're feeling better so you can get out and enjoy more time in your garden and, oh yes, creating more beautiful cards!

Dear Vivien: I'm so sorry you are not feeling well, my friend, and to make matters worse, you had a fall, Please, please give your body a time to heal, no sense in rushing or stressing with comments and stuff like that, we are here to help in any way we can, even if we are scattered all over the world.
And your card is gorgeous, I always love when you heat emboss your images in silver and then watercolor them, the birthday girl who will receive this card will be thrilled!!
Again, take care please, ok?
Sending love and healing vibes your way.
XO
Maria.
