Sunflower Friend

Hello and happy thursday. How fast has this week flown? Just want to welcome my new followers and take the opportunity to thank each and every follower for making blogging so fun,your comments really lift my day especially when I'm working and can't get to craft!!

I made a quick and simple card today to enter in a couple of challenges. I am away for the next few days so wanted to have something to share with all my lovely friends!


Fantabulous Cricut - Let's be Friends
My Craft Spot - You make me smile
The Kraft Journal - Walk in my Garden


Family and friends are the sunshine of life and I think sunflowers represent sunshine, (stay with me!), so hence a sunflower cut at 3"  from Stretch Your Imagination and a Hero Arts 'friends' stamp stamped in the middle and surrounded by brown micro beads seemed appropriate for both challenges.
Tim Holtz kraft stash  and vintage photo inking. Flower popped on 3d foam. Clear epoxy dome over sentiment.

Have a great rest of the week,see you Sunday.
Hugs,Jayne x

  16. I love it Jayne! Sunflowers are one of my favorites and I love how you used the micro beads for the texture! Is the card base an elegant edges cut or did you use a punch?
    And I agree, friends and family are wonderful!
