Pansies on centre court

Hello crafting friends!

The trouble with autumn is that it's not long before it morphs into winter and when it does, we lose most of the flowers. What is a girl to do? Well, this girl nips over to Clearly Besotted to add to her collection of their beautiful flower stamps! Come and see:


This gorgeous image is from Pretty Pansies which I spotted in the Sale section (along with two other beautiful floral sets which may or may not have found their way into my basket!) I had great fun colouring the flowers and leaves with a mixture of Spectrum Noir and SU Blendability pens. The best thing is that winter flowering pansies come in all sorts of colours so the fun isn't going to stop here!


I fussy cut my pansies, decorated them with gold thread and mounted them on a trellis-style designer paper. Actually, when I say 'trellis' I realise it's more 'chain link fence'... but that's fine, they can be tennis court pansies! The card was finished with a sentiment from another Clearly Besotted set, Elegant Butterflies.

Jen Mitchell's sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches was calling me this week, so I shall link this card up there.


AND IN OTHER NEWS
A few other houses in our area revealed spooky and scary decorations this morning when I took the dogs out. Eva knew there was something not quite right about those cobwebby hedges and gave an 'aroooo' before we disappeared into the fields! 

Thanks for coming to visit me today. I shall be back soon :)

Hugs,

  4. The vibrant colors of your flowers are the perfect foil for your chain link fence - ahem- trellis. I love how beautiful this is!
