Dryer Sheet Flowers

We've all seen those flowers made from dryer sheets by now I am sure ... I am always a day late and a dollar short but here's my spin on these. The tute I saw had circles of various sizes for the flower. First, let me point out ... I have never seen a flower that has petals in the shape of a circle. If there is one, please tell me about it. I would love to see it! So that is why my flowers have circles in the shape of flowers. :) You do take a circle, fold it a few times and then cut a curve on the end and wah-lah! Flower! :) Then, in my "ema-gination" flowers have leaves! So I made some oblong ovals and shaped these into leaves. The tute I saw used a misting spray of some kind ... I do not think the gal identified what she used specifically other than calling it misting spray. I do not have that ... misting spray ... none ... of any kind. :( So I improvised. I used Tim Holtz distressed inks in Fire Brick and Peeled Paint. I stamped the dryer sheet cut outs. :) Stamped and stamped until I achieved the color I wanted. :) I also used Robin's Nest Dew Drops in gold color. The PP is Stampin' Up. The button and CS is from my long hoarded stash ... of course! The sentiment comes from Raisin Boat's Formal Phrases stamp set. Because ... in case I have not told you this before ... I love this stamp company! :)

I made this card for my friend, Ana. Her husband had a heart attack a few weeks ago and I have not seen much of her because of that. I wish I felt better and stronger so I could go see her more often. She lives clear across town and that is really not an excuse ... everything in Lubbock is 20 minutes away. Lubbock is a small city and has lots of freeways. This makes me a bad friend ... doesn't mean I do not love her or think of her often because I do! :) I have a few shortcomings and this is one of them. Sometimes ... I am not a good friend! :(
