Nothing goes to plan.......

I was looking forward to an afternoon of crafting until my son called asking me to babysit for a couple of hours.  Now don't get me wrong, I just adore having my 4 year old grandson over to visit but it means any chance of crafting goes out the window.  He wants to join in..... which is great and we have had some great afternoons playing with stamps and stickers.......but when I am in the mood to make a masterpiece (LOL), I like to do it without interuptions.
Anyhow..... after dinner ( yes, Son and Daughter-in-law invited themselves to join us) and after they had be honest they just ate and ran as Daughter-in-law is pregnant and was really tired, I sat down to some peaceful crafting and this is what resulted.
The stem of the flower was a Marianne creatable die and the sunflowers are 3D stickers from Docrafts.  I used distressed ink around the image and the tag and sentiment were from my stash.
I am going to enter in the following challenges
Anything goes  =  say it with flowers
one stop craft =   photo inspiration
 Cowgirls  =  Anything goes
