"Say it with flowers!"
That's was the advertisement slogan to encourage you to send flowers to your loved ones - to say "I love you", "Happy Birthday", "Get well soon", "Congratulations", or even "Cheer up"!
Well this month, in honour of the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog's sponsor - Miss Arts Papercrafting School, we are investigating the power of flowers on our blog hops. If you've joined me from Kim's blog - then you're on track. If you've just happened by, you can find the start of the hop here.
To ring the changes this month I decided to make a greetings card rather than a layout - to send my love and congratulations half way round the world to welcome my brother's new baby boy. I've used my July Counterfeit Kit and several flower punches to create a soft, dimensional border; I also had to nab the Cosmo Cricket tiny alpha stickers from last month's kit as they matched better than this month's alphas! Not a particularly traditional baby card - I'm hoping it will stand out from the crowd!
Having punched out a load of spare flowers, I put them to good use and made another card ... just because. It's good to have a few cards in reserve when you feel like getting in touch with someone; I'd far rather receive a postcard or a letter than an e-mail. Wouldn't you? Speaking of receiving things in the post, Julie Kirk is running a Going Postal series on her blog here - lots of fun ideas, including making "Hello" cards!
