Favourite things



Today sees the start of a new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this month our theme is 'Favourite Things', as always there is a generous prize of a $20 shopping voucher from FlonzCraft.

You are probably fed up hearing me say how much I love Spring but I couldn't miss this opportunity to make yet another piece displaying a few more of the lovely blooms we see at this time of year, in this one I have PB Daffodils and Tulips and Stampendous Violets, all stamped onto a Brusho background and base card made using TH Cabinet Card.

Once my card was made and the three sections fixed together with little spines, I inked the edges and used a harlequin stencil to add a little background interest.

I do hope you will join us this month and also pop over to the challenge blog to see all the super inspiration from my team mates.

Another stunner Brenda and is definitely at the top of my fave list of your work. Summer really pops from each of the three pieces of art work.

Spring is a beautiful season Brenda and I'm not tired of hearing you talk about it. It fills us all with joy and optimism for the new year ahead and I never tire of seeing the new buds and blossoms appearing. Your piece of art is also very beautiful and I love the layout where you are able display more than a single Spring flower. I like your backgrounds and the touch of Brushos too, it's all so very colourful. Enjoy the sunshine, Crafty hugs, Sandra x
