Hello Everyone..

It is Friday today and I made a, [what the family always called my Mothers when she made it]..A Nana pizza..[ not cooked yet]

Spaghetti cheese and did add onion as I like it, but the kids didn't back then and she would have done anything for my kids..

So onto todays project which is flowers..

I think this was the first one I made out of 4..

Flowers from my stash, leaves die cut in grey card stock and added Gesso on their edges.

Pearls, cotton string and bits and pieces that I cut out of papers I the birdcage and flowers down the bottom..
Distressed the edges too with scissors which I found rather stimulating...and messy!!

I decided to add this second card as well, as it is in pink too...

These were some of the leaves I die cut and painted....

The other pink card I made, this one is real pretty...

This was taken getting it all sorted as some of those papers should not be there..

There is a side view, all distressed as well and a few layers..going to be tricky shoving this through the post..

Any last photo today was my little helper who was bored and came up to say hi!..and be annoying, as all the flowers went flying when she had had enough..

Gotta love her though, she is a lovely girl..

So there go, flowers, leaves pizza and a cat..

Thank you so much for stopping by and I will see you tomorrwo..

Good morning or evening Chrissy, well first your pizza looks amazing but I never heard of that topping before, it looks interesting and I bet all kids will go crazy for 'Nana's Pizza'....
Gorgeous flowers, beautiful cards, do love a bit of shabbyness and as for miss Holly, she got lucky when she found you, she is so sweet. Have a lovely Easter weekend.xx

Another gorgeous floral card. And your helper is soooo helpful. Mine is the same way because she is so lonely. One one hand it drives me crazy, but we do love them.

This is another gorgeous creation but you shouldn't put your helper in there as she will steal all the compliments!! Tasty looking pizza too Chrissy. I am sure you spoil your Grandkids just as much as your Mum did your kids xx

These flower cards aren’t postage friendly, but a part from my Christmas cards most cards I make are given in person. So these will be hand delivered cards:) I think I need this leaf die, where is it from? Beautiful layering and love the added string detailing.
