Say it with Flowers

Afternoon All and thanks for popping in.

It would seem that Mum has had a mini stroke, and 
today they are doing more tests. 

Been busy up at the Village Hall Coffee morning today, 
took my mind off things today
and sold some of my Mens cards today.

Here is the card for today.

Been a bit difficult taking a photo of the card - not sure why
not as clear an image as I would wish. 

I stamped the flower image with Versa-mark and sprinkled with 
embossing powder on A hint of Gold card stock. 

Used Cosmic shimmer watercolours to paint in the flowers.

Used Distress inks to colour in the background lightly with colour

Then stamped the sentiments from Clarity stamps.

Mounted onto white card blank.

Hope you like it 

Would like to enter it for the following 


Thanks for popping in 

Time for a cuppa and time to relax 

Hope to see you again very soon, God willing I will be back tomorrow. :)
