Gumball Green is one of my favourite colours ever and I love the simplicity of these single-colour mini cards. It was fun finding interesting bits of the stamped image to cut down and use:
I liked the way the dots appear to fade out on this one for instance...
... and the way these flowers appear to be bursting out of their frame! All the cards were matted onto Gumball Green card stock and decorated with rhinestones.
The large flower in the Wildflower Meadow stamp is just beautiful and so delicate looking...
... and there are several different styles of flower too - it's like a whole stamp set in one stamp!
I shall link these up to Di's Snippets Playground where it's definitely paddling pool weather and although the diving board has been removed, we could play splashy canonballs if we jump off the tree house! (And if you don't know what they are, you must read Tacky the Penguin by Helen Lester - a great favourite with my family and still quoted today!)

Gumball Green is the colour of my youngest son's favourite t-shirt:
Minecraft, for those who are slightly bewildered, is a weird computer game based on lego-ish building blocks. It is highly addictive and if it weren't for his annoying old mother, my son would quite literally 'eat, sleep, Minecraft'! I gave the t-shirt to him on his birthday earlier in the year and to say he was delighted is a wild understatement. I practically have to wrestle him to the ground and tear it off his back if it needs washing. (Not really!) When we arrived in London at the weekend we saw a whole family wearing these t-shirts - I suppose they'd thought it was a good way of making sure none of them got lost in the crowd. We had to hang on to my son in case he drifted off with them!
See you tomorrow,
