Big flowers

I've finished my planning for next week and decided to give myself a little craft break. This is another flower I stamped and took on holiday to colour with my promarkers, so I just needed a card to put it on. The stamps are all Elusive images (Graphicus) from the Ruby Tuesday, Butterfly poppy and butterfly daisy collage sheets. For the backgrounds I used distress inks in Antique Linen, Dried marigold, spiced marmalade, tea dye and brushed corduroy. I also used Vintage sepia versafine. I put the glitter on after seeing Glenda's beautiful creation here.
Work has been great so far, although very, very busy. I have a wonderful class with only twenty children in it at the moment, but I am expecting numbers to go up as we are the only school in the area with spaces in the infant classes. I'm hoping I can do things like planning etc mid week next week to leave the weekend free for Harrogate. I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to going as it is the only show I will have been to this year. Off to plan Tuesday's staff meeting now. Have a good Sunday!
P.S. I've just found out Sunday Stampers theme is Life, and I think this fits the bill, so I'll enter it on there too!

Hi Sally

Fabulous flower, your colouring is perfect.

Lucky you with a class of 20, most of our are pushing 30.

I'm feeling guilty Brenda, cos the junior classes are 32,33, and 34... I have had 27 or 28 for the past 3 years though, so I'm not expecting it to stay that way for long!

Hi Sally. What a stunning card. That flower is just fantastic. Glad work is going ok.
May see you at Harrogate, it's only a few miles from me so I had thought I might slope along and be tempted by lots of lovely things!!
