DIY flowers

Morning all, I'm back!  I've been out of touch for a bit, packing for a 4 day camping trip, then camping, then recovering from it.  (mountains of laundry, yikes)  I'm still not feeling very crafty, I think because it's just so darn hot here.  If you look closely at my card, the yellow stuff in the background is my lawn.  Or what used to be my lawn...


Anyway, the challenge at Fab N Funky this week is make your own flowers.  Feeling not very creative, I just made some simple lollipop style flowers out of die cut circles.  The cute birdie is from our sponsor, Doodle Pantry.

Challenges:
Sketch - July Sketch for you to Try
Circles - Top Tip Tuesday
Buttons - Tuesday Alchemy 
Wings - Card Cupids
Use a Doodle Pantry image - Doodle Pantry
