Altenew...March inspiration


All cleaned up after the storm and rain, place
looks decent again, fresh and clean.
Today some stamping and water colouring.
These challenges at Altenew are always so inspirational
with the gorgeous colour boards they use.  He is my
attempt using Altenew die and stamp called...
" Best Mom  "
The sentiment stamp is from Altenew stamp set called,
"Dahlia"
My stamp positioner is always used now for stamping
so much easier. Off the edge card once again attempted
and this time a success.
Here is my take on the March Inspiration challenge

Using Memento inks:
summer sky, peanut brittle and pink petunia
and my water brush pen.

Challenge:
Altenew...March inspiration

Dutch card lovers.....off the edge


A collage of photos for you of my back garden after the floods,
then last two days summer has been hindering us again, hot and humid
but everything is smiling again and I am wondering when
Autumn will arrive. On that note rain is forecast again.

What a gorgeous "off the edge" card Annie. Love the soft colours and the lovely gems in the hearts. The text stamped in two colours is a lovely accent. Wow what a beautiful garden, I love nature and this is a beautiful piece of nature.

Glad you were not left with any lingering effects from the terrible storms, Annie. Your hibiscus bloom is amazing! Do you have the dinner-plate size blooms, or the traditional size? Either way, it's beautiful! As is today's card. Those soft colors and your fussy cutting have me smiling! I especially like your layered ribbon bow. Lovely! hugs, de

Many of my friends in the northern hemisphere are hoping snow will go away and you are hoping for cooler temps. It never seems to be the right temp everywhere at the same time.

Your card is out of this world. I am SO impressed. I love the layers and the way you placed all the flowers. It really caught my attention. I was super impressed with this card.
