Say it With Flowers

Welcome everyone...............hope that the weather is improving as its very much been a mixed bag in our neck of the woods !! One minute is lovely sunshine then dark clouds and heavy rain........!!!

Today I am sharing an 8 by 8 easel card made for a friend who has recently retired.
Once again the beautiful Ophelia stamp from Stampsmith was used and a variety of leaves and tattered florals from Tim Holtz. With a little cup and saucer also making an appearance as she loves nothing more than a cup of tea !!

Having fun with Paperartsy Infusions at the will be back to share some of the projects next week...............meanwhile look after yourselves and have fun crafting xxxxx

I am also entering this project over at 613 Avenue Create where the challenge is Anything Goes with a twist - American Beauty and Use a Rose
It has also been some time since I played over at Fashionable Stamping where the challenge theme is Beautiful Blooms. Ophelia has leaves/blooms in her hair.

Over at The Artistic Stamper the challenge theme is All Things Bright and Beautiful and as my card is lovely and bright with florals/butterflies etc I am sharing it over there
Live & Love Crafts new challenge theme is Sprinkles of Summer, where my lovely florals, butterflies with pearls and  stamped image fit in.
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is Anything Goes

  13. I too LOVE that stamp - Ophelia is very beautiful and really should be inked often. She is so prettily ensconced in your lovely botanical scene and the gentile tea-cup is a perfect accompaniment. Best wishes to your friend for a happy retirement. Weather very similar here - rather wearisome really - wish the sun would break thru for a decent spell! Nicola x
