Pretty floral arrangement from a friend

Hello lovely blog buddies,

Life has been rather busy of late... there is a lot happening, we have had to move Aleeza to another school for reasons that were causing us much stress. Anyway, she has taken the transition really well. It was her second day today and I feel proud of my little girl that she is handling the change so well. She was rather well settled in her old school and I have much gratitude for all the positives she gained there but change her school we had to.

Here is a picture of a floral arrangement that a dear friend got home to lunch. I LOVE flowers and I was delighted with it so I thought I must share it on my little blog. This lovely lady actually has a passion for flowers and does her own flower arranging. She has done a diploma in floral arrangement and is really talented as you can see.

Down below is a card similar to one I had made a few weeks ago. It is a Paper Mania stamp and I have used my Prisma pencils to colour the image. The three presents are stickers from my stash.

I wish you a pleasant Tuesday.

Sorry to hear about your stressful time moving Aleeza to another school. Pleased to hear that she's settled in though. They seem to adapt better than wee do.
Your birthday card is so bright and cheerful. Lovely colouring with your pencils, too x

ooooooooo! Gorgeous floral arrangement! I would be smiling from ear to ear, too! The anthurium blooms are especially lovely. We don't get those very often here as it is too warm for them in Florida. The roses and carnations are pretty, too. I especially like the artistry used in creating the arrangement. So glad you shared your gift with us. I can smell the scent of your flowers! hugs, de
