Anything BUT a card

Hello again, thanks for your visit.
Today we start a new challenge at Make My Monday.
Amy has chosen for the challenge
Anything BUT a card
Please pop over to check out the creations from the DT,
it would be a shame to miss them.
I have had this small chest of 3 drawers for a long time, 
I knew I wanted to paint/deorate it but didn't know until recently
what I wanted to do. All edges are painted with an orange acrylic paint. 
The papers I used are by Graphic 45 -Rare Oddities paper pad.
I adore Graphic 45 and Halloween so they are a perfect combination. 
Thanks for popping by.

Favourite Flower and Why

Hello, at long last it appears as thought my chest condition has 
resolved and I can now function in a comfortable fashion. Health issues have
been a concern for the past two months,  so pleased to be back crafting
and blogging.
Today we begin a new challenge at  Cardz 4 Galz, Ina G our DT member
in Australia has chosen for us
Favourite Flower and Why? Yes you must tell us why you chose
your particular favourite flower. 
Please take a look at the blog, it seems that Roses are the most
popular choice of the DT, though there are others. 
For my card. I used a background paper from my paper stash.
The stamp I used is a Bluebell from Chocolate Baroque. 
Coloured with Promarkers.
The reason I chose the bluebell, is I love to see them in the pathways
and wooded areas, they smell so lovely and fresh. For me they are the first 
signs of the beginning of Spring. 
I look forward to seeing which flower you have chosen.
