Flowers all Over


Morning Peeps, it's Saturday and time for a new challenge at Allsorts, our host this week is Mervi who would like to see "Flowers all Over". We have another lovely Chocolate Baroque stamp for our winner, this time the pretty Honeysuckle single limited edition.

Another short post, still rather weak and poorly and only up in short bursts and awaiting test results. But on a positive note, the obligatory COVID test last week came back negative, impressively at 1.06 am just fourteen hours after it was done.

All stamps used are Chocolate Baroque of course, above using Poppy Ledger and Make Your Mark and below using Wish Flower, Just Butterflies, and Make Your Mark agin.


I also have my share from todays mid month post at Penny Black and More challenge which Tracy very kindly did for me and also the set of Notelets I made for Stamping Sensations, thanks for that one to Sally.

Sorry you’re poorly, B, pray you’re soon feeling stronger.. feeling fir you in it all, but of a rollercoaster at times with health.
Love your cards all of them.
The notelets set caught my eye as can see me attempting that if allowed... the other florals I like too but being mauve-blue girl the brushos? Background caught my eye especially.

Brenda I'm so sorry to hear that you are feeling so poorly, I must have missed that post, I've been having to dip in and out of blogging and commenting just recently. Thank goodness the test for Covid came back negative, that must have been such a worry. I do hope you feel better soon, you've had such a rough ride health wise.
Your cards are all so beautiful, your colours and designs are fabulous, take care, Kate x

So sorry to hear you are suffering Brenda but hope that you are improving day by day. Love this really summery collection of cards, although in reality the mornings have certainly felt more like autumn for the last few days xx

Alice (scrAPpamondo) said...

Ciao Brenda, mi dispiace tanto che tu stia ancora poco bene e spero che la tua salute migliori presto!!!
Hai fatto delle card davvero speciali, tutte straordinarie! Mi piacciono davvero tutte, quelle per CB hanno delle tonalità calde e luminose e quei riccioli metallici nella prima sono uno splendido dettaglio! Le piccole card con la farfalla sui toni del rosa-arancio sono stupende, e poi c'è la mia preferita, quella con il background nei toni del viola-azzurro e i delicati fiori bianchi, è così vibrante!!!
Ti abbraccio forte e spero di leggere presto un tuo post, significherà che stai meglio!!

Donna Ellis said...

So grateful your COVID test came back negative, B, and that you can at least rule that out as the cause of your problems. But I am sorry for the weakness and general unwell feeling you are experiencing. Sigh... remember you are my hero and mentor - and such a fine example of living life to the fullest. I am so grateful to have known you in this life. I am also doing what I can, and enjoying each moment with gratitude, even though I'm not able to do much right now as I contend with something new these days. Please know you are always appreciated for who you are, and the inspiration you blow my way. lovingly, de

Donna Ellis said...
