Hello Spring !! :-)

Hi all :-) Happy Tuesday !! I hope you’re all well and looking forward to joining in with our new theme over on the Papertake Weekly Challenge :-)

This week Dawny has made us a fab sketch to follow but if you’re not keen on that one you can choose any previous one ,,, just let us know which one you used ! :)

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a fab $20 voucher on offer for one lucky player :-)


I followed the sketch but made it rectangular instead :-)


I used the fabulous Simon Says StampMarch Card Kit. I stamped the stems using Hero Arts Grass Chalk Ink. I then stamped, coloured with Copics and fussy cut the flowers. I inked the edges with stormy sky distress ink and then stitched them all on my machine, I  wrapped some twine around the card ( in keeping with the elements on the sketch ,, sort of :)) and popped the whole panel up on pop dots.  The cute little bee is a new die from Memory Box ‘Jolly Bumblebees, and the sentiment is from the stamp set in the kit :-)


Thanks for looking :-) the girls have made some gorgeous cards so please hop on over to the PTW to see them :-)
