Thinking of You Blues

Good Morning all.

I'm here with a little inspiration for you today in the form of my favourite floral set - Fresh Cut Florals from WPlus9 - and I'm happy to report to fellow fans that the add-on set "More Fresh Cuts" is currently winging its way across the Atlantic along with lots more goodies from WPlus9, Avery Elle, Lawn Fawn and our new brand Newton's Nook! 

I've taken the set on the sympathy card route today and arranged a whole host of blue flowers in a cute urn die from Joanna Sheen.

I kept it fairly monochromatic using a blue-green for the leaves which reminds me of those lambs ears leaves I used to rub the white furry coating off as a kid!  After die cutting all the flowers and stems with the co-ordinating dies I went to town playing florist arranging them in the urn using the florists trick of 1, 3, 5 for the focal flowers and berries and filling in around with leaves.  Mounted onto a woodgrain background for added interest and finished with a banner stamped with a sentiment also from Fresh Cut Florals.

I hope that gives you some inspiration ready for when the new stock arrives - hopefully I'll be able to get the shop open towards the end of next week - I just need to get a few things sorted and then we'll be good to go.   Thanks for your patience - and for filling in the survey - I'm working my way through your comments and will do my best to meet your requests.  As with all things we'll need a little time to grow into all the new stuff we want to do so bear with us.  I'll answer some of the comments and requests in a post next week once I close the survey and announce the winner of prize - so if you haven't done it already this may well be your last chance so if you have 5 minutes to spare fill it in now Make the Day Special Customer Survey

Thanks and Happy New Year!
