Seeds of Friendship

Hello everyone and I hope that you have had an enjoyable weekend. It's been lovely here, lots of sunshine but not too hot. 

Martin's mowing the lawn so I thought I would make good use of the quiet time and post a card that I made today especially for the latest challenges at Allsorts - A Challenge for Kath and Sweet Stampin' - Colours of Autumn

 


This is one of those cards created entirely using freebies, the sunflower stamp, sentiment and the stencil all came with magazines at one time or other. I used various inks with the stencil, including an autumnal Big Juicy pad...remember them. It is quite old and was still juicy!! The stem and pot wer coloured with Promarkers and I found some suitably coloured scraps of paper so that I could paper piece the sunflower. I must apologise for the pretty poor photo, honestly it is as crisp as anything but looks dreadful on here...never mind, you get the gist!!

See you again tomorrow xx

This is beautiful Saran, the Sunflower is a delight against the stencilled background and I know Kath would have loved it. Thanks so much for joining in with a Challenge for Kath at Allsorts this week.

Thanks for the message yesterday, clearly the problems are widespread. We found things were no better in the community, we have to take her daily on an hour round trip to be checked and baby weighted, no home visits.

Hi Sarah, that's a gorgeous sunflower and a lovely card. Wonderful colours you've used as well.

I remember Big Juicy inkpads, though I never brought one, but I've got some 'chalk' ink pads that are still going after probably 10 years.
