A Variety Today!

Hello Blogland friends,
Yesterday's fabric pretty flower - I just used the fabric on its own, no backing.
As I assembled the flower I added some glue to slightly gather the middle and then added a brad.
Fabric makes a nice alternative to felt but I think I'm still in love with cutting felt! 
In fact, this is just a little sneak peek of a little project I'm making for someone in my family...
Now do you recall this card? 
The phrase 'Imitation is the best form of flattery" was coined by an Eton chappie named 
Charles Caleb Colton - well Charlie I couldn't agree more!
A lovely lady called Gemma who follows my blog, got in touch with me after I featured this card and said she would like to make it.  Unfortunately the stamp I used was out of production but clever Gemma improvised - she used an alternative stamp and instead of Carnation Creations for the flowers she opted for the smallest die in Grand Peony Creations and isn't it superb!
The flowers are cut/embossed from paper that Gemma printed from a Polka Doodles CD.
It is so pretty in pink too!
Thank you Gemma, 
I'm thrilled you sent me your photos and allowed me to feature them here on my blog.
Back tomorrow friends,
Take care,

Hi Christine, see your designs are so great that we all try to replicate what you produce and can be inventive when we don't have the dies you used. Some are better at it than others but we try.

Morning Christine,
You inspired me to try felt which I must say was very successful will have a go a fabric now.
Gemma's adaptions are lovely too. We all need some help some time.
Have a good day.

Christine, was unable to post message yesterday re. fabric flower card. I loved the simplicity of it. Very 'summery' and fresh. I'm a great fan of Kath Kidsons designs and all went together so well. Best wishes, Carolyn. x

Your flowers are really pretty Christine. I have been looking for something to brighten up a very plain top - think I might have just had some inspiration!!!

The cards above are all beautiful and it just goes to show what can be done with an idea.

Hi Christine,
What a fab post today. I adore your flowers, both yesterdays and todays felt ones. I think the project your are creating is going to be something special.
I love Gemmas casing of your beautiful falling flowers card, so delicate and so pretty. Also it goes to show that you can use a design on many sizes of cards and still it can look fabulous.
Thanks for sharing Gemmas cards with us, I love to see what everyone is creating.
Regards Linda x
