Blue is the colour

Good afternoon all and thank you for popping in to 
see me today. 

How are you today? 

I have been busy first thing this morning 
baking bread and sorting out a Christmas present I have been asked to 
make.... getting there

But here is my project for today.

Blue I would say IS the colour !!!

I have used AlteNew Painted Flowers and Label stamps for this
And the little pots of blue AlteNew inks

I just love the AlteNew Painted Flower stamps as they are just great to
make your flowers look so real.

Started off with a 6 x 4 white card and stamped the flowers and leaves all over
the card. Changing the direction of the base stamp as I went.

Cut down and mounted onto blue card and onto a white card blank.

Added a stamped Just for you sentiment from the Label stamps using
a blue to match

I hope you like it and would like to enter it for the

Thank you for popping in.

Bread is out of the bread maker and the smell here is just lovely.

Here is an oldie for Erika's blog

How things have changed is all I can say :)  This card I made over 18 months ago.

Always good to see how things have changed ( of course so long as it is for the best)

Best dash so bye for now

  1. Hi Pen,
    what a super blue card, and I love all the wonderful stamping.
    Your Oldie is great as well and I do love your colour choice.
    I can almost smell the bread from here in Kent.
    Have a wonderful weekend.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  3. Your blue card is gorgeous and great stamping Pen. I think the other is very pretty. A lovely misty card and very pretty colour. Barbxx

  4. Oooo Pen I can smell that bread from here, yum. My Dad used to have a bread maker but stopped using it as we would all scoff the warm bread as soon as it came out of the oven, it wouldn't last five minutes.

    Thanks for joining me sharing an oldie today. A lovely lilac number. Your blue card is beautiful too, a super floral background.

    Enjoy your weekend and thanks again for sharing an oldie.

    Hugs Erika. x
