Hi there friends, I am back with my usual reminder DT card for 'The Flower Challenge'. Our theme is 'Focus on Background Stamping' this month.

We have a talented Guest Designer Deepti Malik who is also sponsoring us with a PRIZE. Deepti has her own range of stamps and she is giving one away as a prize for our lucky winner this month. See our blog for more details.

Now come and see my card and of course thanks for popping by and enjoy your week whatever you have planned ;)

Focus on Background Stamping, Concord & 9th, CAS

Concord & 9th Hello Lovely stamps
Altenew  watercolour paints
Hero Art sentiment
Versafine Onyx Black ink
N&T clear sequins

I made a top fold card and stamped my flower image in black ink. Then I water coloured my flowers and leaves and added a few clear sequins.

I love this stamp and used some of my favourite colours once more.
I stamped my sentiment on a spare piece of card and attached that to my card also. My card was then finished ;)

White Daisy card

Hi there friends, hope you are all doing ok? It's been so wet here lately , three months of rain in one week in some parts. Our Summer bedding tubs are  all water logged. Hoping for warmer sunnier days soon and back to some Summer weather.
I have another 'Less is More' card to share with you today. It's a colour challenge this time and 'Duck Egg Blue, Plum and White' and I must admit I struggled at first. Hmm is my Plum more Purple looking now I look again...oh well at least I had a bash!

Anyway this is what I came up with after a bit of thinking! No idea why I struggled either as it's a colour combo I love lol. Enjoy your weekend whatever you have planned.

More kitchen news,... after weeks of planning (years and months of looking at 'stuff' too) deliberation and negotiation on prices lol, we have it designed at last. Phew! I can't tell you what a lot of work it has been sorting it all and choosing tradesmen etc. I have a whole file on it now for goodness sake!
Hey... I might even get to make more cards now too! I have also been super cleaning and sorting 'stuff' like I always do in Summer. I blame Mrs Hinch!! (for any fellow followers here who will understand).

Back to our kitchen again...I am pleased to say we have a date now and it will all start in the middle of August. Yikes, still filling me with dread.The whole kitchen is to be gutted (it's like 30-40 yrs old) so it will take a while but it will be worth it (I keep telling myself that at least !). I will show before and after pics (and progress maybe too) as it happens if you are nosey ;)

Right....sorry about the waffling... I am sure you are mostly here just to see my card so here it is below ;)...also sorry about issues!!

Neat & Tangled Rice Paddies stencil

I made my top fold card base then added another panel on top. I then stamped my flower and leaves around the edge and coloured them using my Flexmarkers.
I stamped my sentiment on a spare piece of card and cut my flag shape then shaded around it and attached that to my card also. A sprinkling of  clear sequins and my card was complete.
