Here I stamped two of the profile flower, using the outline stamp only, and coloured them in using Watercolour Wonder crayons, a marker and a blender pen. The background came next - green inks were dabbed over the top using a textured bit of sponge (the crayon does resist the ink a little). To make the third flower turn the other way, I stamped it on a scrap of card stock, coloured it and then cut it out with my sharp paper snips, separating the head from the stem; the stem was simply turned upside down and the head repositioned on top.
Here's a close up of those pretty flowers tied up with a piece of the gorgeous organdie ribbon that you get can get free THIS month. (Today is your last chance to get your hands on this wonderful freebie, two full reels of ribbon and a pot of fabulous brads FREE with orders of £45 or more!)
Banner sentiments are all the rage at the moment - I made mine by cutting a strip of card stock with my trimmer, stamping the sentiment using a stamp-a-majig and snipping ribbon tails in each end with a square punch.

It's not blazingly hot here in Buckingham but it's still pretty bright with only the odd light shower. Certainly hot enough for ice cream to still be on the menu and for a visit to the local swimming pool. I remember when my husband used to take the children to the pool; the eldest two used to take their towels along in ruck sacks on their backs and my youngest son, who at age 4 wanted to be just like them but couldn't manage a huge towel, found a tiny, transparent, toy back pack to wear on his back. There was just room to put his tiny pair of pants inside - perfectly visible because the bag was clear!
It's the launch of the new promotion tomorrow and I've used Reason to Smile to make a pretty coordinating gift set - don't miss it will you!
