Flowers in the field

Afternoon all and thank you for your visit today. 

I had a lovely time yesterday in the end, went for a walk and made jam. 

Boy where does the time go .... it is Friday again I am sure time travels faster as I get older. 

But first my card for today...

I started with one of my papers and stamped using stamps from Seven Hills Crafts 
the Buildable Bouquet  Added a hint of blue around the edges 

I stamped a various flowers and leaves across the paper 

Then using the colour theme with The Seven Hills blog 

I coloured in the flowers using various pencils and pens with glitter. 

added a pink backing paper and then 

mounted onto to a card blank 

Added a sentiment of Happy Birthday stamp from AlteNew Label stamps

I would like to enter it for the following and hope it meets with all the criteria

Thank you for your visit and as it is Friday here is an oldie I first posted 
a year ago on my blog. Pop over to see Erika on her Oldie Friday ....

I find it really interesting to see the change in certainly my cards from then to now. 

Oh and just for you Erika here is a photo of my jam which I made yesterday....

Rhubarb and ginger today but that is later today. 

Have a good day although it is raining here today but the rain will swell the fruit and veg.

ps My thoughts go out to all those in Nice today....


  1. Hi Pen, that jam looks good. It's on my to do list too, which means anytime in the next month!
    A super oldie today, thank you for joining me. A great scene, love the different layers of inking. A perfect male card.
    Loving today's card for the colour challenge too, those bright red flowers are beautiful and really pop against your subtle background.

    Hugs Erika. x

    Your first card is fantastic also.
    Those flowers look like they are dancing across the page ,and the colours are very pretty.
