Colourful Ornate Style

Colourful Ornate Garden

For me, there is nothing more relaxing than sitting listening to music and colouring. My sisters and I used to meet up on days when my middle sister wasn’t working and all the children were at school to do just that. It was really lovely we would have a chat and some lunch. This stamp set is great for those of us who like colouring as this large multi-floral image  is a great size.

Free as a Bird Blended Background

Free as a Bird Colour blended

I’ve got the brayer and inks again, this time to make a background for the trees. Free as a bird seemed like the best fit for this card out of the sets I have, but I think the new set Birds and Branches would work really well.

Daisy Smile Card

DAISY SMILE

Yesterday was the weekly shop, I don’t know why but it always leaves me exhausted and despite lugging it all the way uphill home (we don’t drive), I am not getting any fitter. This could be because Lockdown diet is not going well, I have no self control. This time I have portioned everyone’s snacks out so all the goodies are not sat there calling me. I will do this 😆

Today’s card is the only in-colour I haven’t really used, Cinnamon Cider. See even that makes me think of food, I love cinnamon. Maybe I need to start the day with cinnamon and apple porridge 😆

Daisies – Scraps of Whisper White and So Saffron Cardstock

I love the way the Daisy Lane stamp set works so well, with this paper. If you buy the in-colour multipack Cardstock, you could do the daisies in Bumble Bee to match the DSP, but I preferred the lighter yellow for my daisies and as I don’t yet have the new in-colour blends I was able to use the So Saffron Blend for the inside of my white daisy.
