Gooooood Morning!!

Got no idea why I am in such a good mood..went to docs yesterday and I have the flu and tonsillitis for the second time in 2 weeks! Grrrrrr!!

Anyway, I am soooo loving making my own flowers at the moment, I have come up with another new one....made out of doilies!! Wotcha think? I had these in cupboard for ages, and they fell out of the cupboard at the weekend and I was going to bin them, but hey ho, thought I would try recycling them! I quite like it. Also getting recycled is that rope that you can see - it was on a label of a dress that I bought, wasn't gonna bin that!

Recipe: Doilies, recycled rope, corrogated card I've had for years, Martha Stewart punch, Papermania brads

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Whoa, how can you be this creative when you are so sick?? That's amazing in and of itself, and these flowers are even more amazing. I've been having fun making my own flowers lately, too, but haven't done anything like this. Thanks for the inspiration, and thanks for sharing with us in the Tea Room this week.

These are fabulous. I too just found some doilies the other day and didn't have a clue why I bought them. I don't even remember buying them. Would love to know how you made them... Simply gorgeous. Your creations are so stunning... Love, love, love them... It could be because I love flowers.
