A huge Thank You for all the lovely comments I received on my last post - so appreciated all your good wishes for becoming a Grandmother!
I am having trouble finding time to craft these days. I used to have lots of time but it just doesn't happen nowadays. I wonder whether it is the Summer time.
I can share a couple of quick cards I made today, trying to find some inspiration. The panel 'Marché aux fleurs - Paris' was a free download I found via Pinterest. I stamped the Hero Arts Large Tulip Etching H1893 on the first one and a little bit of green around the edges, adding one of my scrap basket butterflies, in need of a home, to finish it off. The second cards uses a different flower stamp but has the same collage elements. Love doing collage style cards like this.
My second card is also a free download and reminded me of the summer colors in my garden, especially the apricots which are orangey yellow. All I did was add a background panel of PP, a butterfly, a couple of embellishments and stamped a Hero Arts sentiment. About the apricots, I made a very quick jam with them together with peaches last week.
To finish off, a little photo of my grand-daughter, a week after her birth. There is only one who can create like this and that is God!! There is quite a connection between her and her granddad, she just seems so content when he holds her. What a blessing!
