Sweet Blossom

Evening all.  How has your Monday been then?  Must admit, it was a bit of a shock to the system this morning!  And I made the mistake of optimistically putting ordinary shoes on rather than my boots - bet you didn't know that Squirrels could skate.

Anyhoo, fed up with the cold and damp and grey, I have a Spring themed card for you tonight


This is Sweet Blossom from Wee Stamps - isn't she just so gorgeous?  I'm not sure if I have done her credit with my painting but she gave me a happy hour or so while I tried!  I've kept the card very simple, just echoing the colours I used in the image, as I did not want to drown her out with stuff - I think there are times when the image should be allowed to speak for itself (that, and I don't do stuff/fluff very well).


Papermania papers from an old collection, and a Personal Impressions sentiment.  I did the matting layers with plain white card and a Pink Carnation ProMarker to try and get it to match in but now I think it might be too pink, lol!

Looking forward to dinner tonight - leftover beef casserole - it's in the oven now and the yummy smells are torture!  Can you tell that I only had Ryvita for lunch?.

Hugs, Sxx

She's lovely Squirrel and the papers are so nice and bright. Hope you enjoyed your tea. We had leftover ham that I made split pea soup with yesterday and then had the ham for tea. Bargain! Two nights meals and 3 days soup. Wouldn't I just love to be at home to cook and bake and craft every day!!
