    Rustic Botanicals

    Hiya Is it frosty or snowing where you are yet? Can’t believe it is December already! We are having bright but cold days here on the north coast of Scotland, but looking forward to some snow ⛄️ This month at The Flower Challenge we are looking for dies to be used in your floral creations.

    Winter Flowers

    Hi friends Its reminder time at The Flower Challenge which is spots/stripes.

    Keeping it to see CAS with Casual Fridays stamps

    Hello! We are encouraging you to make CAS cards this month at the flower challenge. And we are sponsored by Casual Fridays stamps who are very generously giving away a voucher to the winner. Whoop! I hope you will check out all the design team inspiration, and here is my card using the pretty posies stamp set and sentiment by Casual Friday. For some added extra interest I put my sentiment vertical and hand drew a flower stalk through the sentiment. I used my Mijello mission gold water colour paints to add some colour to the beautiful blooms.
