Morning Everyone,

Yay!  I have two new followers! I didn't think I would ever get anymore.  Welcome Sharon and Amy and thank you for joining me.  I hope you enjoy seeing my future makes.

When I saw the photo inspiration challenge at Penny Black at Allsorts I thought this stamp would be ideal to suit the colours.  It is a PB stamp called Botanical Notes coloured with copics. I had a bit of a pen disaster with the top flower so it's turned out a bit darker than I wanted, but I still like the overall finish.

To cut a long story short, I had left the top off one of my pens overnight by mistake and after refilling it, I think because the nib had dried out too much and I tried to use the pen too quickly, a blob of ink went onto my image.  Luckily it didn't go out of the lines and it was the correct colour, so when it dried I had to go over it again.

I cut the image out with a stitched square die and the sentiment with a spellbinders oval and used dark brown card and a piece of dp from an old LOTV pad.

I hope you like it and I would like to enter the following challenges:

Penny Black at Allsorts - Photo Inspiration
Tuesday Throwdown - Anything Goes
Allsorts - Happy Birthday
Country View Crafts - Flower Power

Thank you for visiting and I really appreciate any comments you leave.

I hope the rest of the week is good for you.
