It’s a good job it’s not What's On Your Work Dest Wednesday today because for some reason unknown to me I suddenly decided it would be a good idea to rearrange all my card making paraphernalia and where I’ve just pulled everything out of my cupboard you can barely see my craft table.

Definitely a bit different from Wednesday!!

I’m expecting to take me a couple of days to get it straight again as I have to take my brother into hospital later this morning to have his other cataract sorted, so there’ll not be much progress today.

But I have the whole day tomorrow free, so I shall set to with a vengeance!

But that aside, what to day actually is, is the Daring Cardmakersdare day and its Rein’s turn to challenge us.

Rein would like to see lots of bright and cheerful Sunflowers on our card and right now poor Rein need a bit of cheering up. The poor love has had a bit of an accident and has badly bruised her face………hope you’re feeling better soon hun. (((hug)))

I’ve gone with a simple DL card turned on it’s side and then added the mounted image, which incidentally is from Rubber Stampede, so that it protrudes over the top edge.
I then added some tiny Brown seed beads to the centres of the Sunflowers and some sticky backed pearls to the paper to add some texture.

Hi Ana, I can’t find a link to your blog so I’m having to answer here…….I hope you come back and see it.

Thanks for you lovely comments about my work; I’m pleased you like my creations.
If you read down to the bottom of my posts you will see that I always (well nearly always) give a list of the things that I’ve used to make the card or project.

I hope this helps and good luck with your mum’s card
