WOYWW #309

Good morning everyone and welcome to my Wednesday WOYWW post!  If you don't know what WOYWW is just head over to Julia's blog and have a look around.  She is the creator of this blog hop and has all the details listed on pages along the top of her blog if you would like to participate!

I started out yesterday, just making flowers and then I was going to decide what I wanted to put them on.


As you can see, I actually cleaned up a bit before I took this photo.  Then I got word my neighbor's brother passed away and so suddenly I need a sympathy card so these flowers took on a whole new life...


I picked out some quiet paper from Heartfelt Creations and of course these flowers are made using their Arianna Blooms stamps and dies.  I added just a bit of bling because it just needed something more and the bling was just lying there in plain sight.


I added some white seed beads and flat back pearls for the centers and of course a bit of glitter on the petals.  

In keeping with Julia's rules I will stop here and not have such a lengthy post this morning.  She likes us to keep it short and sweet.  So I'm off to link up at Julia's and then to start my visits for the morning!

Afternoon, Glenda. I've popped over for that chat so put the kettle on and I'll fetch the cake!!!!! Wouldn't it be great if we could, lol. Your flowers are absolutely beautiful and they've made a very special card which will be very much appreciated at such a difficult time I'm sure.

Thanks for stopping by....DH had me off early this AM to the city, shopping for garden items, between storms. I forgot to post my blog to Julia's, until we got home. Your card is so pretty. I try to keep Sympathy cards on hand but now behind on birthday cards and graduation. Spent a LOT of time enjoying the outdoors with no wind it was great to get things done. Have a great week.

Hello my friend! We are on the last leg of our trip but just had to pop in to see what you were up to! This sympathy card is gorgeous and of course your flowers are always perfect! Can't wait to get back into my cave and start creating some of these flowers but don't think I have the Arianna set so guess I'll have to place an order first! LOL ... Hope you have a fabulous day! The weather here in KY has been upper 80s and gorgeous all week. Talk to you soon and thanks for always inspiring me with your creations!
