Materials


I have dug an older stamp out this time but she is just so pretty with her basket of flowers don't you think. Now how do you like my new BG papers I picked up at Harrogate last week .... I am just loving the fab colours in this pad sooooooooo much! I have pulled a real selection of flowers out of my stash and are a combo of Crafty Feeling and some old Primas _I think) and even a couple from the days of Poppicrafts (how I loved their blooms). A bit of sparkle from my brads and gems and that's about it. So try to enjoy the bits of sunshine that keep teasing us .... got up to 19 degrees here yesterday which is fab for March ..... felt quite tropical after all the rain we have had.

Catch up with you all soon xxxxxxx
