Thank you Veronica and Winnie & Walter and Celebrating WInnie & Walter's 2nd Belated Birthday ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your weekend is going well and I must apologise for my absence, that rotten sinus/cold issue is back, grr. 
Thankfully I managed to do a little crafting yesterday with the new gorgeous stash, courtesy of Veronica and Winnie & Walter, I won a voucher from one of their blog hops and I got to chose some lovely new goodies – stamp set; die; mask/stencil.  Here is what I created last night …

A6 and flat for posting
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges 
The pink and white inspired me
 Colouring Crazy Challenge #5 Pink & White 
Happy Little Stamper’s Mixed Media Challenge February Paint: I used watercolour paints through the stencil and acrylic paint to colour card which I then die cut
Stamping Sensations Challenge February Anything Goes
Word Art Wednesday Challenge #219 Anything Goes

I must warn you in advance of the fact that you will be seeing more of the flower design in particular for the next few months.  I absolutely adore the design and I love the result of one of my experiment techniques with my Spectrum Noir AquaTints sets.

A quick post because of the sinus/cold stuff I have to go lie down for a bit, again!  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 soon ttfn Karen x
