***** Flowers *****

 Hi folks,

Hope all is well with you and yours.  
We've had a few sunny days here this week...feels wonderful after the gloomy January we experienced. 

Today starts a new challenge at

Fab'n'Funky Challenge # 589

hosted by our lovely Pat who has chosen the theme of 

"Paper Piecing"

I've chosen to paper piece a die cut.  I first cut the Whimsy Stamps die using the dark green paper, then cut the watercolour design paper using the same die. Then I hand the flowers, finished the edges with MFT ink.  

The sentiment die is Poppy Stamps - Poe Script, Gems from my stash.


Hop on over to the blog and see the wonderful inspiration from the team,
and join us if you can.

hugs,

**** A little Valentine ****

 Hello folks,

It's been a very long time since I've been able to blog. So Sorry for the delay. Both Hubby and I have been ill and it's taken a long time to get back into the swing of things.  On top of that my pc was hacked again and I just got around to getting it cleaned and ready to go. I hope to visit you all soon.

It's time for a new challenge at

Sweet Stampin

where we would like to celebrate Valentines or Galentines

I've used a HettyClare image and Hero Arts stamp for the sentiment.



Thanks for visiting today.  
There is wonderful inspiration from my teammates on the blog.
I hope you get a chance to pull out those stamps and join us.
Hugs,

**** Fall ****

 Hello folks,

  Hope you are enjoying the weekend.

I  loved this digital image from Julia Spiri and decided to colour her with copics and polychromo pencils.  I'm so happy with the outcome.  It took me several days....colouring when I could squeeze in a little time.  I stressed over the colour of her sweater so checked a colour wheel and decided on mauve.
