Less Is More - Lucky Dip

Afternoon all, hope you are having a good weekend so far - it is a little bit chillier here in the east today with a bit of a bite to the wind.  We have been spoiled this week so normal temperatures have come as a shock!  Still, it is still a beautiful Spring day, and a good reminder what time of year it really is.

This week, LESS IS MORE have a Lucky Dip challenge and have provided a Photo Inspiration.  I admit to a huge beaming smile when I saw this earlier.

Credit where credit is due, and I must thank the wonderful Debby for directing me to this stamp a couple of weeks ago, so a big thank you hunny, I love it.


There are many flowers that I love, but my particular favourite is the humble daisy, it just fills my heart with joy as they are such happy flowers and always a sign of sunshine and warm days.  I know many lawn lovers hate them but I like nothing better than to see a green lawn full of these little loves.

The stamp is a single daisy head from Hobby Art, which I masked and multiple stamped.  A touch of colour with ProMarkers and matted on a piece of soft green paper from Prima.  A Hero Arts sentiment and a few pearls to finish off.

Right, I'm off to finish an exciting project (for me) that I can't tell you anything more about until Easter Monday!

Gorgeous card Squirrel, isn't it wonderful what you can do with a simple stamp. Love how you've coloured the daisies.

I've not been around much this week thanks to internet connection problems but on the plus side I've had a lovely catch up with what you've done this week.
