Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #15

Welcome to our Blog Hop for February! We have the challenge of using these three colours in our card today. While I was doing some cross stitch this week, I was inspired by the scene I am stitching of a bird on a fence post, prompting me to buy ‘Grace’s Garden’ this week. I have […]

More Painted Poppies

I was inspired to make some more cards with my Painted Poppies suite. The DSP is so beautiful!!  One of the cards was very simple! I used Blackberry Bliss as the base and added the DSP and stamped the sentiment ‘Life is better with a friend like you” in Blackberry Bliss and put it on […]
