Annabelle's Meadow


Good afternoon everyone - hope you're all enjoying the weekend. This is my first post for 9 days as I have been suffering from a distinct lack of mojo ... had a sore throat and raging earache this week so I've felt more like curling up in front of the TV after work rather than crafting! Anyhow I have eventually got myself slightly into gear, and here is a card.
 
 
not a great picture I'm afraid as everywhere in the house is either glaring sun (yippee!!) or in shadow ... the greens on this card are not really true but alas it's the best I can do!  I decided to have a go with this extremely pretty stamp "Annabelle's Meadow" by Wild Rose Studio, which was a freebie in this month's Quick Card Made Easy magazine.
 
 
 
Stamps: Wild Rose Studio "Annabelle's meadow" (free with issue 112 of Quick Cards Made Easy magazine); LotV "Everyday Sentiment Circles";
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers;
Papers: LotV "Perfect Pair";
Supplies: all flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts; berries by Magnolia from The Glitterpot; pearls from The Hobby House; silky crush ribbon from The Ribbon Girl; doily from my stash;
Tools: martha Stewart "monarch butterfly" punch.
 
 
Challenges:
 
Allsorts #203 - A Passion For Flowers
Bearly Mine #82 - Spring Flowers
Penny Black & More At Allsorts (April) - Blossoms & Bows (2nd entry)

Crafty Ribbons #43 - Pink & Green
Top Tip Tuesday #99 - Say It Isn't Sew! (non-machine sewing)

That's all for today -  hope you're enjoying the long overdue spring weather we're having :-)
Hugs,
