Gone all flowery

Well my garden is in bloom but with the expected winds and rain this week, I supect they will all be mullered before too long. This weather needs to stop as even though its rainy, it is still quite humid here and this makes the grass grow like it's on some super growth hormones!

Over on Michelflo Monthly Challenge blog, the theme this month is "Blooming Birthday Wishes" and this gave me the opportunity to use up loads of flowers that I have hoarded away in my flower embellishment drawer ..... yep, the drawer is HUGE and crammed full. Since I decided to have a "mid-year resolution" which is to either use up all my unloved stash or sell it or alternatively give to the school Craft Club, I decided this months challenge was the perfect place to start.

I made 3 different coloured tags all "Blooming" full of flowers and following the same design:

Dies: Marianne swirl and Nellie Snellen scalloped rectangles
Flowers: Wild Orchard
Butterfly: All that stamps
Ribbon: Pebbles Inc
Swirl stamp: unknown
Sentiment: Stampin Up

Dies: Marianne swirl and Nellie Snellen scalloped rectangles
Flowers: Wild Orchard
Butterfly: All that stamps
Ribbon: Ribbon Oasis
Swirl stamp: unknown
Sentiment: Stampin Up 
Dies: Marianne swirl and Nellie Snellen scalloped rectangles
Flowers: Wild Orchard
Butterfly: All that stamps
Ribbon: recycled from a present

Card Candy
Why not pop over to the challenge today and join in. The prizes are FAB ..... so much K&Co stuff it's unreal!

I am entering my card in to the following challenges:

Make It Monday - anything goes
Allsorts - in bloom
Crazy 4 Challenges - create a tag

Write, off to do some "school work" and then am intending to sit down in front of the TV, do some blog surfing and cabbage matter watching,
