As You Like It Challenge (DT) Favourite Flowers

Yes, yes, I'm still hanging around, like the smell of boiled cabbage.

It's time for another new themed challenge with the
and this time it is Favourite Flower/s 

I like most flowers, perhaps with the exception of orchids (I find them to be  a bit creepy) and those odd ones that translate from the German (or so I was told) as "willy on a plate".  Anything that grows in the garden is good with me.

I made this one for my dear mum for Mother's Day

As You Like It Challenge (DT) Pearls or Gems

 I had started this year with the plan of blogging more often, but here we are into April and I'm actually blogging less than before.  Sigh.  Must try harder.

As it is a Thursday, you just know I am here with my DT card for the new challenge over at

and the theme this time is Pearls or Gems (please explain your choice)

There's a time and a place for blingy gems, and that, for me, is Christmas for that little bit of sparkle. For the rest of the year, a more subtle effect is required, and that demands the softness of pearls.  I actually shocked myself by how many of both I have stashed away!

So for this little chap I have used
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) as watercolours
I've used a selection of old Nitwits paper pads (because the colours were right and they make me think of spring tulips)
A little snippit of Lawn Fawn 6x6 Really Rainbow
and some pink and blue pearls from my bottomless stash

Our sponsor for this theme is the lovely Tracy at

Do come over and share your fabulous makes with us
