Say It With Flowers

Hello there, how are you all today?

I'm very well, happy and busy at the moment but good busy.  I'm working very hard on a healthier lifestyle and I've been enjoying some lovely walks.  Today started with one of the most amazing sunrises that I've ever seen, followed by a lovely walk.  We walked round a local dam and saw, herons, swans, ducks and lot's of squirrels.  Walking in the early morning is my favourite time as it's much quieter and you can really appreciate the nature around you.  Anyway, enough of that now and onto the card that I'd like to share with you today.

I've cut out the corner using a Tim Holtz die and the stamp that I've used to stamp the flowers is one of my favourites, it's by Crafter's Companion and drawn by Stacy Barras.  I have used it so many times and it's a great for all occasions and in all colours.  I've coloured it with various inks and with Inktense pencils.

I'd like to add this card to the following challenges:

Allsorts - Say It With Flowers
Penny Black and More - Make It Feminine

Wishing you all a very happy weekend x

What a gorgeous card Sandra, I love the die shape in the corner and the floral image is beautiful, such lovely colouring too.
Oh I do agree with walking first thing in the morning, nothing to beat it and your walk sounds just lovely.
I've started Aqua Aerobics, first class yesterday, this is to help with the pain in my knees. I enjoyed it so intend to go as often as I can, but my legs are quite painful today, so I guess I'll just have to get into the swing of things, good luck with the new health regime, Kate x

There's nothing quite like being out and about early morning, when I still able to mount a horse it was my favourite time for a hack and must have passed that onto Anysia as she's always out with Ben before work.

It's a beautiful floral creation and the corner die set is a favourite with me, a perfect card for our themes at Penny Black and More and Allsorts challenges, lovely to have you join in, thank you.

A very beautiful card, Sandra! I love it. Beautifully coloured and such a delicate die cut too. Steve and I are trying to take morning walks three times a week at the moment. We have gone round the local park twice and a nearby nature reserve so far this week, but probably not as early as you. In the city it is better to wait until after the rush hour and school run for peace and quiet, lol. I've noticed signs of spring with catkins and Bulbs poking through which seems too early to me. I was still hoping for some good frosts!

I wish I could say I was working on a healthier lifestyle but I'm not a winter person and tend to hibernate until the warmer weather makes an appearance. I love your card with the beautiful stamp and fabulous die-cut background xx
