Non Idle Hands! .....

Good morning everyone!  I'm still here.....just working like a borrowed mule and trying to keep my head down and hands busy.  Like I promised.....my hands have not been idle.  I don't have the time for anything major creative, but when I sit to rest from my chores.....I've been creating flowers!  I love doing flowers and using them on my cards and so here are my new flowers.





This is only a few of the things I've been doing.  These flowers are all over my work area and getting ready to go into a flower jar.  Most of them were made using the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Die but you can make most of them if you have punches.   The large flowers are the Prima Camelot Rose Duplications that I learned to make on YouTube.  Just key in Camelot Roses Doop and that video will come up for you.  Some of the flowers have UTEE on them and others just have Distress Inks on the Edges and Glimmer Mist and then some Ranger Stickles on the edges for some shine! 

I work awhile and sit awhile which is typical with my age group.....while I'm sitting, about 15 minutes worth, I can either cut out some card stock or ink edges or assemble, or whatever.  I was beginning to feel like I had to totally stop creating and only work, but I find I can still do a little of both. 

I hope you enjoy these.....I'm loving making them and can't wait to have time to make some cards and other things using them!  Have a wonderful day and I'm off to tackle another item on my list!

These are so gorgeous--they look real! What a nice thing to have scattered around at this time of year when everything outside is starting to die off. I know they'd cheer me up!
Enjoy checking all those jobs off your list, and don't forget to take some time out for you too!

Beautiful flowers! My goodness, whether or not you ever decorate anything with them, they must be such a wonderful creative interlude (in between those tedious chores). I know you'll put them to good use, those, and I'll be here looking when the time comes!
