Wee Florist

Another card today.  Again plain and simple with another gorgeous whimsy image.  Came across all these when I was sorting through my stamps and have rarely used them.

Only noticed when I uploaded the photo that one of the gems is not sticking very well, have now fixed with a little glue even though they are sticky backed.

Sweet Blossom

Sorry for the lack of posts, been  looking after my little nephew until last weekend and then my daughter had her graduation -  BA Hons in Spanish with French with a Diploma in Professional Practice (International), (she worked in a school in Linares, Spain for her placement year).



Recently sorted through all my crafty supplies and came across stamps that I had forgotten about and some that had never been used.

Made this card with Sweet Blossom from Whimsy Stamps - she is really cute and lovely to colour
