Challenge #10 - Flowers or Trees over at As You Like It

Hello everyone. Haven't been a good blogger recently, have missed not visiting you all but hopefully I can get back to normal  and craft.  The craft room is more or less finished and while I was at it I decided to carry on and clear the clutter from about every room in the house. Nothing like striking the iron when it's hot and it was steaming lol!  A mamouth task and kept thinking to myself why on earth did I hang on to all the stuff and for so long! My boys always wanted to know why I kept it all. Hopefully get time to craft now and hopefully the aches and pains will settle down after the punishment I have given my body of late. 

Okay I'm back with a card for 
As You Like It Challenge

and
this fornight 
we want to see you use
your
favourite flowers or trees
and
please remember to tell us why



We have a fab sponsor for you this next fortnight who has generously donated a $20 voucher




Right, first card made in my new craft room, oh boy was it strange getting used to where everything was and in no time had as big a mess as when I worked in a smaller space.  I decided on a Pennyblack flower stamp so love them, have many of them but so loved this one when I saw it. This one is called 'sweet pleasure'. Not sure what kind of flower it is but looks pretty good in any colour. Lives up to it's name I think.

Marvellous card Carol. Love the stamp. I'm glad that I'm not the only one who can mess up a craft space making one card. When I'm finished it looks like a bomb site.
