Saturday...............

has dawned cold and miserable - grief will Spring ever arrive and will the sun shine again?? Don't know about you lot but I'm getting fed up of this weather I need to see some sun............. lol

I made this last week at the Papermaze crop......I know you're supposed to scrap at crops but I hadn't had the chance to prep anything and if I'm honest we rarely get anything done other than chat, drink coffee, chat, eat cake and spend money at the shop!! lolxx I did get my puzzle back tho' - well all apart from one piece and we all know who was late with that don't we Vanessa!! roflxx I will photograph it today and show you all - it really does look wonderful together xx



I've left the majority of the card blank plain and stamped swirls from a Purple Onion plate in the corner, the flowers are OLD! they are from the original tin of prima hydrangas I bought eons ago and the centres are from some bunches from around the same time - a floristry pin finish that section off. The image, "Daisy" is a Sugar Nellie stamp by Elizabeth Bell and available from Funky Kits, who are also kindly sponsoring the fab goodies at TYI this week. This has been shaded with my watercolouring pencils, the edges were distressed and then inked with chalk ink. This was then layered onto a plain sheet of basic grey paper.

TFL xx
