Sarah Hurley's Challenge - Flowers xxx

Hi everyone,
Well I'm official a plonk!
I slipped in the train station yesterday and twisted my wrist and bruised all my other arm and side!! Today its the must awful colours of the rainbow and typing with one hand is harder than i thought! Was so embarrassed and then was trying not to cry, hubby says I'm not allowed out on my own again! Probably serves me right for going out and spending his money hee!
Anyways it's Thursday again and that means it's time for another Sarah Hurley Challenge! This week our lovely theme is
"FLOWERS"
So that could mean just adding them to your card, a flower image or like me a whole wee pot of them hee!

Ingredients:
Christmas Cheer Cd
Card from stash
flowers - Wild Orchid
Sizzix leaf and flower dies
Kebab skewers wrapped in florist tape
Ribbons from stash




For the flowers and leaf I mostly used up alot of scraps, including the fab brick pattern that look great if I do say so myself!! After making the wee pot that i had to hold for 10mins to stick, hubby asked why I just didn't use a toilet roll tube?? Next time tho hee!!!!
I hope you will join us this week and use your "flowers"! Check out the fab Dt's creations for some inspiration and remember you don't need to use Sarah's products but we would love it if you did!
Hugs
