Good Morning Ladies,
I thought I'd make a start on the many 'Thank you' cards need and as I sat at my Craft Room desk looking out of the window at the rain I found myself thinking of Spring, the warmer air, the bursts of colour everywhere from flowers bursting in to life, if the past six months is anything to go by I will be here in no time.
This was the inspiration for today's card, I went straight for the brand new Stampin'Up! 'Petal Palette' suite (stamps with matching dies).
I then had to choose the colours, my first thoughts of Spring are yellow and green, so that's the colour I went for, 'Crushed Curry' and 'Old Olive' with a hint of 'Peekaboo Peach' added into the centre of the flowers and on the edge of the birds chest, I used the Stampin'Up! Water colour pencils and blended them with the Blender pens, which brings the colours to life.
I stamped the three rose cluster and coloured then die cut it, I did the same for the bird, the die cut the background strip and the green foliage sprig, and arranged them on my card.
I stamped the 'Thank You' from the 'Petal Palette,' stamp set at the bottom of the card and added a few sparkles.
It certainly brightens your day.
Paul and I had a totally relaxing day yesterday, I banned him from cooking, cleaning and running around after anyone, I wanted him to really chill out, so that's what he did!
Today we have Paul's parents and sister coming over, so all hands on deck!
I hope you have a lovely day ladies,
Love and hugs
