Spring Blossoms


Good Morning peeps, what a lovey day it is here in the Fens, sunshine no wind the smell of prunus blossom in the air and just lovely. Hope it's the same your way.

At last our eldest son and his wife eventually got home from Thailand yesterday after their enforced extended holiday. But I hear there are lots of people still stranded outside Europe, so that are lucky to have got booked onto flights.

Just the one share today for this weeks Tuesday Taggers with the theme Memories, mine are childhood ones as this lovely stamp reminds me of apple scrumping........goodness knows whey we used to do it as we were surrounded by orchards......I guess picking the ones available was no fun. And it is also my entry for Everybody Art Challenges who want cards based on a Song Title........mine is Your my Best Friend by Queen of course and Creative Card Crew April Showers bring May Flowers......I've got nothing resembling rain so have gone with the flowers and blossom element.

My stamp is the one I used a week or so back Hero Arts K5353 In the Garden stamped very simply with Big and Juicy soothing sunset. The DP is Crate Paper, the punch Martha Stewart eyelet lace and eyelets, ribbon, flowers and pearls to embellish.

Linda said...

Hi Brenda love the card. It's nice to work with a stamp that reminds you of something good isn't it. I am always thinking of my children when I make any cards with children on and all the fun times we have. Love the way you used your Martha Stewart punch. I went to the craft show in Aintree at the weekend and bought a few, I couldn't resist. I am suppose to be saving my money for the Happy Stampers show on Saturday the 8th May. Oh well I can't help it all crafting goodies are so tempting. Love Linda
