Fanatical about Botanical # 2

Hello dear friends! Hope you are all well and enjoying the summer.
This weekend I had a lovely time creating close to my heart - nature, and botanical fits in that theme, maybe with a little whimsical twist this time. I made a couple of collage cards for the Moxie Fab challenge, which can be found here.

I used a Darkroom door stamp which I have always admired how Godelieve uses. Cut out the flowers and put them on dimension. Thanks to Sue for the diecut in cobalt blue. The little strips at the bottom are scraps. I used a punched out butterfly on gingham and a Robin (again) from the Graphic's fairy.

My second card using the same stamp for my focal point stamped in blue distress ink on PP. Used some scraps for the bottom two strips, another bird from Karen and some digital butterflies from Hero Arts.

I received a beautiful surprise this morning from Sue - I was speechless. Have to share it with you! You see that bird stamp? I have always wanted one of those!! Thank you Sue for your unbelievable generosity!

Not only is my cup running over in the Lord, my card basket is also running over! Thank you to all of you for the wonderful encouragement I receive - it is such a blessing.

I am feeling well - I have another eight days to enjoy it too! Fourth chemo session will be 26th July.

Have a lovely sunny day!!
