I have a problem, or rather an obsession ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. I appear to be obsessed with my flower stamps at the moment, lol, I feel like it's been such a long winter that I am desperate for flowers and bright colours now.  Here is my card …

I created an A6 card this time
This one will go in the post lol!
All the yummy details!
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges

I was inspired by the flowers and foliage

Scrapy Land Challenge #63 Anything Goes
I used Crafters Companion & Tutti Designs dies
Congrats Simon Says Stamps on your 8th Birthday!

I have a smallish pile of stamps waiting to be inked up for the first time but I am really struggling not to keep using flower stamps and flower dies too, lol, I guess that's because I purchased some dies in the sale in January and I didn't get to use them then so I've been itching to play and create with flower stamps and flower dies, it is the first outing for the bees that are in this set of stamps though, aren't they cute lol?!

I need to wean myself off of using flower dies and stamps and play with some of my other stamps especially as I want to enter several challenges soon. 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
