It's only the beginnig...


I have a few Daffodils springing from the ground and I am so excited to know it's only the beginning...I love flowers and being in the garden letting the dirt embed under my fingernails. I love the snakes even though they surprise me at times and all the amazing insects I come across, I guess you could say, I'm no girly-girl and I'm glad for it!
This card is a tribute for whats to come. I used more See D's stamps, have I mentioned I got eight sets for $32 dollars at Sonshine Crafts, that is a deal for sure! They aren't clear however the image is on the back of the stamp so you know where it is in relation to the paper. They are sticky backed to use with your acrylic boxes. Check them out!!! I don't own Copic's and may never but what I used were my Close To My Heart reinkers to me this is very cost effective and you can mix them up for altering shades, I just place a drop or two on a larger acrylic block and add water as desired and use either a water brush or a fine paint brush, I know you can see brush strokes but I'm ok with that!

Sooo pretty! Did you stamp the green bit at the bottom or is it patterned paper ?
I am a garden girl too. I spend wonderful hours caring for my perenials. Our soil here 'sucks' so I don't have too many plants that can handle the clay. I don't mind snakes one bit...bugs on the other hand LOL that's a whole other thing. It seems like everything out there is trying to eat my plants!

Sarah it's stamped on CTMH Citrus Leaf textured cs and then colored in with my old stand by Souffle pen which is almost gone! Archivers, here I come! Have you tried mixing in kitty litter in your soil to break things up a bit? BR-T
