Mondays flower

Well here is Monday nights flower, the New South Wales floral emblem........The Waratah.  It is not too hard as long as you keep your wits about you LOL.........I seem to have got my computer problems fixed, I just killed the computer!!! so am relegated now to the laptop....the other is five years old so not sure whether or not it is worth fixing.  It still goes, so I may have to hook it up today and work it til it dies, it seems to overheat and then knock itself off for a day, then comes back on as if nothing has happened....weird and as to the modem worries, I fixed that, it was a firewall that was actually on the new modem so I disabled that and now I can come visit!! yeah me...........
Love Jenni xx

I also made a paper flower using the scrunching technique, was pleased with how it turned out, my blogging friend Patti Jo sent me the instructions how to make it, you can check out her wonderful blog here

I can see now that one of my leaves has come astray but haven't time to re take the pic...but will fix it now

flip top birthday card

One of the ladies that comes to my class brought some cards in for me to see and kindly let me copy one of them, I love how this card opens to display the little tag inside....really easy to make too.........Thanks Jen xx
I hope you all have a very Happy Easter, mine is starting a little rough, my hubby was painting the kitchen last week, took a switch plate off the wall to paint behind it, caused a spark and knocked my computer off, when I tried to restart it just wouldn't have it, I left it overnight and next morning it started again, the internet connection lasted until 3pm and then died, after a lot of there and back with my service provider they decided that it was the modem that had given up the ghost, off I went to buy a new modem, came home and with great difficulty installed it, the internet is fine on every part except blogspot, it lets me come and visit you and look at your cards, but if I want to leave a comment, it says connection timed out, I then have to close my browser and restart, go straight to my blogspot and link to yours then quickly write my comment then when I try to go back, guess what? yep, connection timed out, if there are any computer gurus out there I would be greatful for any help, I think from delving in to things that it is being blocked by a firewall but am not really if I don't comment on your cards for a while you will understand why.....

As per your request ladies, a very easy flower along with a box......Lilliums have to be the easiest flower to make and the box is fairly simple too so should be an easy night for you!!. The little butterfly was punched out of small balloons and small hearts....... The photography leaves a lot to be desired today, I am struggling with a flareup of my Lupus at the moment, too much sun while on holiday I think, not to grumble there are others much worse off than I am....

Very late Wild Iris

This is the card I taught tonight, I got back from holidays (had a great time!!) at mid day, hairdressers appointment at 2.15pm and card class at five, what a day! but all my ladies really seemed to enjoy this one, I have a bush of these in my garden and they always look so pretty, only one flower with lots of leaves but they still look good. Have to get cracking with next weeks now.  I will be round tomorrow to check out all your blogs, I have missed my craft!!
Love Jenni xx
