Beautiful Sunflowers.

 Good morning all, this post is scheduled for Wednesday 15th. Not a happy day for me and my boys as today is the funeral of my ex- MIL and their grandmother. This is the first funeral that my sons will attend and is a sign of getting older and having to deal with the unpleasant side of life.

Rather than be morbid I have chosen a bright and sunny card that will hopefully lift spirits and look forward to the future, as despite sorrow, life does continue to go on.

This card is just beaded around the topper, which is from LOTV. I have used 3 beads:- yellow, green and clear. I cut up some circular peel-offs into 4 and stuck them in the four corners. Backed onto some pale green card and then yellow dotted paper.
A close-up of the beads although in this image you can see the pale green beads so well as the flash has bounced off them.

Thanks for stopping by and see you again soon. x


  1. Morning Jan,

    Hope today goes well for you, it can't be easy but you have to be there for you children. Will be thinking of you.

    Fabulous card, love the bright colour and those beads are gorgeous, it must have taken you ages to sew all those on, I would never get it looking as neat lol!

    Love & hugs

  3. Hi Janice
    Another beaded spectacular. You are so neat and precise.
    Its fortunate that your boys have got to this age without the need to go to the funeral of a loved one but I guess that won't make it easier.
    Hope you all got through a difficult day.
    Best wishes.
