Festive Florals Week 2.

 

Morning Everyone.
Who is all mixed up with what day of the week it is??? I am!!! I keep thinking its only Tuesday as Tom was off school on Monday for the May Bank Holiday. He is off again tomorrow for the Scottish Parliament Elections. 


Im here with my second make for this fortnights Fezziwigs Challenge. This time I wanted to see your Floral makes. 
I have used a wee hunkydory set for my card this week. I love to see Robins on Festive makes. They are such pretty birds. 

I hope you have all had better weather than we have here on the East Coast of Scotland. Its been like winter again. I have had to put the central heating back on some days!!! Lots of heavy rain and hail as well. Im sure my wee garden doesnt know what its meant to be doing!

Stay Safe Folks.

Tag Time...

 

Morning All,

Well what a weird weekend we are having. It was heavy snow here last night. It was lovely and warm in the morning and I didn't need a jacket on for my dog walk!!! Strange weather. 

I got a wee bundle of items from Ebay the other day and there were some tags in it. I thought I would have a play and make a tag. 
Before I make a tag in the future though I will plan my image much better. I wanted a bee for Tag Tuesday and thought I had the perfect bee but it turned out to be a giant killer bee that filled the tag!! Ooops!!!

Recipe
 Hunkydory Prisma Colour Inkpads. 
Flowers and sentiment - Joanna Sheen
Bee from Stash
Bee coloured with prisma colour pencils 

Thanks for dropping by today, I am almost finished painting the bathroom now!! Hurray!! I have been pacing myself and its so frustrating as I would love to just do it all in one day but I know if I do that I end up feeling really ill for weeks. I think thats progress though as before I would have just rushed though it. 

Stay Safe Folks,
 
Love and Sparkles,
