Watering the flowers and some Pinterest news …

 

Good morning bloggers and thanks for stopping by

I know yesterdays card used the same stamp but we’ve been having such lovely weather here and things are starting to grow in the garden so I thought it was the perfect time to share these cards!

Gretha has used Watering The Flowers from our new Spring release on what I’m sure you will agree is a very different card to the one by Pops yesterday…

She uses Distress Inks and gets an amazing depth of colour with them, it takes quite a bit of practice to achieve results like this but well worth the time and effort I think

The lovely papers are from our Country Lady pad and the sentiment is from the Simply Sophisticated set

The rest of the details will be on Gretha’s own blog so have a wander over there and you can see more of her lovely work

Before I go a quick update on our new Pinterest page

Lucy has been working hard pinning lots of goodies to all the new boards (and giving us all a bit of an addiction in the process!) so it’s now another fabulous source of inspiration that we have for you

Wether your crafty mojo has gone walkabouts or maybe you just fancy a browse then do go and have a look at what she’s been up to, beware though …the time just disappears once you get on there!…

See you tomorrow, have a lovely day

  31. Such a gorgeous card, the colours are just so spring-like :)

    I go on your pinterest all the time, I love the way you have different boards for all the different occasions - like I wanted to see what images I could use for mother's day cards, so I just went to that board and now I've chosen a few images to buy :)

  37. This is TOO CUTE! I love all the little details packed into this card--the watering can charm, the pearls, the banner, the wooden button, the scallop border--I could go on and on.

    And you're right--the LOTV pinterest boards are addictive. Faffing around has never been so much fun.
