Beautiful blooms

A quick one from me today using the recent Simply Cards and Papercraft, issue 200, Altenew stamps and dies. This is perfect for this time of year. I die cut, then watercoloured the flowers and leaves with Distress Oxides. The central panel is the mop-ups from left over ink.

The photos don't show it well, but a little glitter glue on the edges lifts the flowers with a bit of sparkle.

This has been doing the rounds on social media this week and pretty much sums up where I'm at...made me smile...

“Where are we going Pooh” said Piglet

“We are going to get emergency supplies because of the Coronavirus” said Pooh

“Are we going to the chemist to get Antibacterial hand gel, toilet paper and Paracetamol and the supermarket to buy lots of food?” Said Piglet

“No, we are going to Hobbycraft to stock up on Cricut supplies and paper and ribbons in the hope we get quarantined, so that we can enjoy a fortnight of staying in” said Pooh

“Oh what a wise bear you are, I’m so glad you’re my friend” said Piglet

Thank you for stopping by. Take care xxx
