Afternoon blog peeps, here's a couple of real quickie cards I've popped together using some of the Floral Fantasia die cut toppers from Kraftyhands. These cards literally took less than 10 minutes to put together.
Using only stock backing papers, core'dinations, sizzix and memory box dies, a little distress ink (Victorian Velvet) and some bling you have a couple of stand by birthday cards for those times when you've forgot someone you shouldn't!
The toppers are so versatile and you get 12 of the toppers in the set for just £1.80! Bargain!

Garden wonders

I've been out in the garden this evening with my secateurs! One of the benefits of growing your own flowers in the garden is being able to have fresh cut blooms in the house.

I've filled vases with pink hydrangeas in one and red crocosmia and bright yellow lysimachia in the other.

Hmm now there's some inspiration for some card making I think!
