When I was about 5 years old I told my mother that I wanted to be a florist when I grew up. The years passed by and I became a teacher, moved to the outback in Australia and enjoyed teaching before becoming a mother. When my children were old enough to go to school, I taught on and off as a relief teacher and a guitar teacher while teaching stamping and scrapbooking at the local craft council. Since moving to America I really haven't felt the call to get back to teaching and for the last year I have enjoyed stamping and blogging. I've given alot of thought about what I want to do with my time especially after my kids leave home which isn't too far away and funnily enough I gave serious thought to becoming a florist! A few weeks ago I started an online Floral Design course and have completed the first module and am really enjoying this new venture.
After completing my first two arrangements I knew I had to make matching cards for them! So, I thought I would hijack my blog on Fridays...Floral Friday...and show you some of my arrangements with their matching cards. Some weeks I might just post cards with flowers...and as I use flowers on the majority of my cards this won't be too difficult!
Today's arrangement is a Basic Round silk arrangement. Module one was working with silk blossoms and the rest of the modules work with fresh flowers.
