Wee Florist

Well, the short term memory so very nearly bit me on the bum again today ..... but I got a reprieve!  One of the ladies that I sit with in Church (they have semi-adopted me I think, and there we are like the three Wise Monkeys in the front row) said to me "you have remembered that it is Doreen's birthday on Tuesday?" - well of course I hadn't remembered Joan, don't be daft.

Anyhoo, Doreen had gone off to chat to someone so when she came back to collect her things I wished her a happy birthday for Tuesday.  "Tuesday?" she said, puzzled "It's Monday week, the 8th!".

Thank you Lord for hearing my prayers!

So, I got busy this afternoon and had so much fun painting this one:

So, I have used:
Stamped Image - Wee Stamps (Sylvia Zet) Wee Florist
Medium - Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Sentiment - Hero Arts
Papers - Prima "Botanicals" (magazine freebie)
Extras - Martha Stewart pansy border punch, Doodlebug pearls

And here is she is close up - Toad was on the Wii Fit and could hear me muttering as I did her hair!

Right, that's me for today - I'm off to get dinner roasting.  Hope to see you tomorrow with my DT card for Without Words October Challenge.

Big hugs, Sxx
