A Non Christmas Post!…….Baby Blossoms

Morning all! Hope you are well?
Well i thought a different project today, as you may be a bit fed up of the Christmas posts from all us crafters but we have to think early for Christmas as my Friend informed us via Facebook the other day there is only 158 days till Christmas!
So in my before mentioned Birthday order from Stampin’ Up! i ordered the Baby Blossoms stamp set in clear mount, and i had hardly inked it up so on Saturday while Mr.C and the girls went out for a ‘‘Splash Walk’’ i got myself situated and got inky.

Now what do you do while you craft?? Do you listen to music? or have a TV or DVD running in the background? Normally for me its a DVD of some kind and this weekend it was series two of the legendary 70s comedy “Are You Being Served?” which is one of my favourite all time programmes i love all the risky double entendre and the non offensiveness of it all.
And there’s me off topic again! Useless aren't I?  Can you imagine living with me?
So here is my project it is not using your traditional colours for flowers i have used Crumb Cake with Chocolate Chip to stamp the rose heads and the leaves are Certainly Celery and i have used the Pear Pizazz Seam Binding to add texture;
The Celebrate! sentiment came from the level 2 Hostess Set from the Mini Catalogue, called Something to Celebrate.

I also made a stack of pillow boxes to match;
And here is the completed set;
I think that they look pretty effective if i do say so myself!  I think that they would be perfect for a lady that ‘just doesn’t do girly’

Until next time

I 'do' girly and I still love this set! Gorgeous colour combo, and I adore the ruffled seam binding on the card.

When I craft I like to have nothing on (tv I mean, not naked!!!) as I really get to enjoy silence with Phoebe around :) I love that you watch Are You Being Served though, such a funny show :D
