I noticed something very special appearing in my pots..
yes my first tulips are about to bloom....whoop whoop..how wonderful spring bulbs are. They sleep all winter and wake up just like magic.
My darling Billy always rolls around on the patio if I am sitting outside.
I can't share my current DT work yet but I can share a card I made for Dotty's today. ..inspired by this glorious weather and my magical plants. I have missed using my Lavinia fairies so after making a very spring inky background with distress inks and adding a bokeh effect with white ink I inked up some magical images. It's hard to show in the photos but there is lots of sparking sunny glitter too.
here's a close up
I used my Visible Image sentiment from the Own It set.
I also reflected on the fact that it is nearly a year since I retired from my physiotherapy job...After 34 years I thought I might have rather a lot of time on my hands...gosh how wrong I was. I am still pinching myself how my creative life has taken off....it's magical and I do count my blessings..and try to take the time to smell the roses...well it was violas today!
My card was made for the following challenges. .
Rubber Dance 1/3 everything spring
That's Crafty 1/3 bling it up
Sweet Stampin 2/3 anything but a birthday
Creative Inspirations 2/3 favourite stamp brand and why Lavinia are my favourite fairy stamp brand...much copied but never rivaled. I think these silhouettes are just perfect for not too fussy/non cute fairies. I notice they have a green man stamp coming out soon...that will be straight on my wish list.
Squirrel's not so random challenge spring fever
Artistic stamper 3/3 spring
Stamping sensations 2/3 close to nature
Craft Stamper take it make it March
Creative Artiste 2/3 anything goes mixed media
WOW March I used WOW embossing glitter for my added bling and my dandelions are black embossed.
Simon says stamp Wednesday 1/5 bit 'o green
Thanks so much for stopping by, I know that many of my American and Canadian friends are under many inches of snow. ..I hope my photos might warm you a little and perhaps if you make a wish....who knows? I know that our wonderful weather is only going to last for another day so I am making the most of every single glorious minute.
Bye for now,
Jane (and a very sunny Billy ) x
