The first post for February

Hi bloggers,

Can you believe that it is the 1st of February today??? One month gone by so very quickly!

I made this card a while ago and you can see my famous handmade flowers on it... That reminds me that I must start making my flowers again. Remember how I used to make only flowers for the longest time... I guess that was a phase.

Now to this card - I have used a stamp called Tara Reed designs by Stamps Happen, INC  that Zeenya picked up from Hobby Craft in London... I had to pick it up - simply irresistable!

The green distressed effect has actually been stamped with a square stamp from Whispers (docraft). Have colourd the stamp with my Darwent water colour pencils. 

I love the sentiment of this card... The ribbon is from my stash and so is the metallic violet paper (Paper Chase tissue paper). 

Hope you like this card.

Hi Monica. This is delightful. Gorgeous spring colours, beautiful design. Love the lilac paper, and the sentiment with your fab image is beautiful. Of course, your flowers are so special. Happy crafting.
With love, Sandra xx

I love this card! The colours are gorgeous and so is the metallic tissue paper! :)
My dad is a wine lover, that would be a good stamp to use on a card for him!
