More Flora

Good morning to you all.  I seem to be having a bit of a botanical theme going on this week as I have done another card with a plant on it!

The image is Eating Artichokes by TLC Creations and it comes with the sentiment.  The digital papers are Flourish by Carina Gardner from The Sweet Shoppe.  I have followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday using the following items:

Inks: Copics
French Pastry Doily Cheery Lynn
Spellbinders Grand Nesties Ovals, Beaded Ovals, Small OvLS
Ribbon and Gems from Stash

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
Love to Create - Anything Goes
There She Goes - Anything Goes
Sentimental Sundays - Anything Goes

Well I managed to get a morning crammed full of baking and cooking for Easter yesterday. One mishap I made a double batch of scones and I was just cutting them out and putting them on the baking sheet when I realised I had used the wrong flour! They all had to go in the bin and I had to start again!!  Today I am off to the gym in an hour (early bird catches the worm) then I am taking my aunt out for lunch.  I hope you all have a good day wherever you are. Thank you so much for looking, I will see you tomorrow - take care xx
