Dec 292011

It’s a rainy windy day here in Seattle, and the forecast is for more rain and then more rain and then more rain as far out as the forecasting goes.  So thought it was the perfect time to use some of my big, bright and beautiful flowers to add some color and cheer to the day.

Boy do these ever make a statement!

Love this sentiment.  Even though it is from Inkadinkado’s “Thank You Words” set, I think it would make a great Valentine’s sentiment.  And with my DH’s favorite color being purple… well I may already have his Valentine’s card done.  Although, the flower may be too much for a guy?  Have to think about that one…

And finally, here’s a couple of cards made with these new (to me) fabric flowers from Petaloo!

Staying dry and having so much fun doing it!  Thanks for dropping by today.

Happy Crafting!
