Here is something I made earlier.

Too long ago (we must do it again), my friends came for a stamp over, much laughter, food consumption ( chocolate, obviously) and to be honest very little creating, ensued! Christine however was very busy getting her convention swaps ready, punching up a storm and kindly bequeathed me all the bits she punched but didn't need, saying " I know you will make something with these". Well here they are. Flowers!
I have cased one of the cards in the new catalogue (page 10), sadly I didn't have all the items used because they are not available yet so I improvised with my trusty Papertrey Ink supplies.
With the addition of a few punches of my own, I came up with five flowers.

Doesn't the centre of the one above remind you of a Rowntrees pastille? These are new from Kaisercraft and come in a range of colours.
This last flower is my favourite, however it is a bit big for a card so I will have to save it for a scrapbook page. Dashing off to work now although I would rather be in my craft room, ahh, such is life, we do need to eat after all!

You are SO clever, my friend; what a crafty way to use my cast-offs. Yep, it's been way too long between stampathons; let's try to organise another. Love your cards; the colour combo is exquisite. Now, back to work so you can buy more chocolate xx

Gorgeous cards, Kerry and the flowers are fabulous. The second one is my favourite. Will have to get a lesson on these!
