Card for a very dear friend

Yesterday and today have been the hottest days of the year so far... so I did a little bit of quiet crafting . July is a busy month for family cards so I thought I better start ... this one is for my very good friend Ellen, so something soft and feminine was called for:

I used my favourite Crealie Modern patchwork die for the base card and a lovely hydrangea die from Impression Obsession made the flower.
I love making paper flowers, moulding them and shaping them .... this die uses a very simple  flower shape .... but a lot of them &  putting them  through my ebosser was a bit of a chore but now I have found the answer for all my small dies : The spellbinders sapphire, it is so small it looks like a toy but its a real little workhorse and made short work of the 120 little flowers I used

So that's 1 card down 7 more to go.

While I have been blogging the weather has changed from hot & humid now I think there is a storm brewing so I best go down and close all the windows because we've been promised thunder , lightening and hail stones when it arrives .... that's a whole years worth of weather in one go ... a very good start to July . Happy crafting xxx Anne
