    Happy Penguins

    Hi Sorry I have been MIA lately, had a lovely holiday with my hubby in Vancouver (our first in seven years!)

    Pinkfresh Studio Be Filled with Hope

    Hiya I love pinkfresh studio products (wish I could get them easier in the uk), and today I was playing with the Walk In Faith Stamp set. The beautiful flowers and the heat embossed sentiment are from the same stamp set. I added my watercoloured panel, with a strip of black cardstock to a side folding cardbase and added the sentiment with 3d foam squares for dimension. Please let me know what you think.

    Clearly besotted floral CAS card

I had the Flower Challenge – Anything Goes in mind when making this card ( they have an open DT spot and I would love…
