Bold Blossoms & a few other pattern papers

Hi there,

Yup I am getting back into crafting again (phew!).  In amongst snake kid wrangling. For your viewing pleasure (I hope) I have the last Pattern Paper set that I was asked to do something with.  I am so glad that I have managed to do it justice.  I think having access to Pinterest has helped me in a HUGE way ;o).
 Ok here are some more cards that I've made with the different pp packs I was given.  Starting from the top left we have:  Rose Bouquet, Bold Blossoms, Twilight Florals & another Bold Blossoms.  I am loving trying out new ideas & stretching myself to leave my comfort zone.  As I have to use supplies that can be easily gotten from Daisy Chain.  Which means my beloved stamps (mostly older Hero Arts) have to have a bit of a rest.  But don't worry Later today I'm hoping to play in some online challenge blogs.  
 I love this LO of Emsy!  It just seemed to flow really easily.  I used Bold Blossoms pp for this LO.  I must admit I used a sketch/LO from Pinterest as my base.  I then had to make a quick trip to Daisy Chains to just get the dark brown bazzil.  Well good intentions don't count do they?  I ended up spending just over $30 instead of $2.  The Butterfly mask was too hard to resist no pun intended (well maybe just a little).  Plus I gave in & brought a Butterfly punch,  I've been wanting one for ages.
 This Post-it note & pen organiser I found on Pinterest (yes I'm an addict to that site).  It was really easy to make.  I just had to "tweak" it a little, because I can never just follow the instructions!  I added a box? for the  pen to sit in at the bottom so it stays inside the folder & I added the sleeve to keep it all together.  This is also another Bold Blossoms pp.  The base is a Bazzil Dot green.  I am going to make two more of these for Emsy's teacher & teachers' aide.  As part of their Christmas baskets.

Well that is all from me today.  I have uploaded these cards (with tags) to my Flickr photostream here.  If you want to see what I used in detail.  Have a great week ahead xoxoxoxo
