This is a stampers ten make and take that we did a while back. One of my favourite sets, I love the flowers on this set, and the leafy flourish. The flowers were stamped on to scrap, cut out and then given a little shaping before fixing to the card. Below I have shown two options for finishing the centre of the large flower. The first one is more practical for posting, with just a little shaped circle inverted over a blob of pva. The second has stamens made by snipping a strip of card into a fine fringe, then rolling up and spreading the fringing to make a much more dimensional centre.
A couple of days ago, I think I somehow pinched a nerve in my back or hip, and was in a lot of pain, and was having trouble bending, sitting down and standing up. I was very slowly and painfully working my way out of bed a couple of mornings ago, and saying to Amy (8 years old) that I was like an old woman. Her reply: "Well, you're kind of old - you are 50!"
Feeling much better now though. This afternoon I leaned forward whilst sitting at my desk, and felt something go twang - all of a sudden the pain and stiffness was vastly reduced, so guess whatever was pinched is un-pinched now . . . thank goodness!
