Stop and Smell the Flowers


Well helloo everyone!
I wondered if I would get the chance to post again this week. It has been a busy one. This is our last week of term and last day of school for us in Scotland.....holidays officially start for us at 3:15pm! Whoop whoop!

There have been so many events to attend at school and so much to get organised. I saw my eldest be the Wizard in 'Wizard of Oz', and went to a Garden Party for my youngest's last day of Nursery, so it has all been good.

I have no idea how much I will get to post over the next 6 weeks...I will just have take it as it comes!

Today I have made a frame with one of the fabby Some Odd Girl stamps from Quixotic Paperie. This one is called 'Smell the Flowers Tia'. She is coloured with copics and instead of making her into a card I stamped the sentiment (which comes with the image!) below and placed her into a photo frame. ( I removed the glass so you could see the 3D elements!)

I then took some yummy felt from Sew Sweet and used my Sizzix Die for 3D flowers cut to make the felt flowers. These are made in exactly the same in which you would make a paper flower.  For these flowers I used 3 shades of pink felt to make my flowers. I used Baby PinkVintage Rose and Rose Pink.

I then added a fabby acrylic bead to the centre.

Thanks for your visit today!

This will be popping into my *NEW* Etsy shop later today!

This is so stylish & I love the 3 colours of felt flowers & your placement of those pink pearls to enhance the framing effect of the frame itself. These images are just growing on me & I just sat & looked at your colouring of her hair. Hope you do have some time for yourself midst all the busyness of the holidays.
Much love
