Flower Power

Good morning everyone!  A big thank you for all your suggestions yesterday regarding text boxes I have been able to get rid of the box so thank you!! Also another thank you to Chrissy who sent me some information on how to change the font on your blog which, as you can see, worked a treat - thank you Chrissy!

I've gone with a flower theme for today's card, just to remind us that Spring is somewhere around the corner!!

Mmmm a bit bright I should have warned you!!  The image is a Woodware stamp which I have coloured with my Copics.  I added some Liquid Pearls to the dots on the image and also the stamens.  The papers are MME "A Mother's Love".  I have used a Martha Stewart PATP punch - Cherish - for the mat and then embossed it with a flower embossing folder.  The flower is a Joycrafts die with a Card Candi in the centre.  The ribbon is originally from Create and Craft its a huge roll and I have had it a couple of years.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Make it Monday - Anything Goes Linky Party
Pretty Little Ribbon - Anything Goes
Stamp and Create - Spring is Coming
There She Goes - Flowers

Well I cracked on with my invitations yesterday and I am quite pleased with my progress.  I am normally a last minute and panic type of worker so it feels good to be ahead of the game for once.  I will probably do some more later today, first some housework though - sigh!  Thanks for coming by my corner of blogland, see you tomorrow - take care xx

Ahhh, this is so bright and cheery! A welcome burst of sunshine in Vancouver's dreary February!

Love the colours you chose and that great plaid background paper.
My snowdrops are just starting to bloom so I guess Spring is finally on it's way!
