Another off the page project ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well.  I’m busy creating my obligations and just for fun and me projects but I wanted to make sure that this was entered into the challenges that inspired me to create it …

I do love these hot summery colours and these flower stamps too

Created for me and especially for these Challenges 
Country View Crafts Challenge Summer

 Mixed Media World Challenge MMW#6 Gorgeous Textures
#5 Anything Goes with a stencil but not a card

Colours & Optional Twist in the garden

I will have a photographic step by step tutorial but not until October because of commitments so please accept my apologies.  The bits of Windows 10 that were not working for me have, thankfully, been removed yay!!!  Sadly DH has not been so lucky: he has had to delete everything and start from scratch, so happy that didn’t happen to me. 

A very quick post today as I have ‘schtuff’ I need to go back and finish, two are done just two more to do, thank goodness!  I love my bright orange, peach and lemon creation and it is staying in my craft room for the time being.  In fact I can’t wait to start creating another one, hopefully soon!  I have candy that is open world wide to new and old Followers.  I would love it if my current Followers were to add their name too, for the post with the link you need to go here.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment.  I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this week ttfn Karen x

Karen, this is really beautiful! Boy, I love those colors! The way you have layered up the background is genius! And your poppies really pop over that script and gorgeous textured background!

Thank you for your really sweet comments on my blog! I did check out Wow! EP, and from what I can see, theme is layouts and memory keeping, so my wall hanging does not qualify. The one time I entered there, I won! Lucky!!! This is one of the EP's (on my Frilly and Funkie GDT project) I won! I love their powders! Hugs!
