Blooming Meadow

Here's a little bit of Spring for you.  I hope that wherever you are you are finally seeing some signs of Spring.



When I saw Virginia's beautiful card at the Muse Challenge, I thought of a pretty flower garden.  And this stamp is perfect for a flower garden.  Here's Virginia's card.


Colour Q gave me the colors.


Inkspirational Challenge has the perfect sketch for this image.



Queen for the Day this week at SCS is Jeanne S.  I hope I get time to CASE more of  her cards.  I saw several that made the wheels start turning.  But this card, with it's bright, pretty flowers, won me over right away.


Vicki Burdick had a birthday this week and Lesley at Always Playing with Paper is linking up birthday cards for her.  So I'm dropping this off over there too.  Happy Birthday, Vicki!

I'd better stop.  My DS and BIL are visiting and I'm being quite rude sitting here at the computer with you instead of enjoying their company.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Blooming Meadow (Hero Arts)
Ink: SU Markers (Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, Lucky Limeade, Crumb Cake)

Hi Bonnie, this is so beautiful. All those colours are so refreshing. I'm nearly into Winter over here but where I live, luckily it doesn't get very cold. I still have all these colours in my garden. Just perfect! xx

Hi Bonnie,
Love love love your card and since I own this stamp too, I may have to try this!!

As for my Vagabond, it's due to arrive on Monday and I'm excited to try it. I do love my Big Shot and even have a Cuttlebug, but I'm finding it more difficult, especially when I'm fatigued or I have a lot to cut.

I have wanted one for along time, but felt it was too expensive, so when I found that deal on Overstock, I went for is and now HOPE I am as happy as others. I am not thrilled with the look of a Vagabond...definitely a TIm thing and wish it was more feminie looking, but oh well.

I'll be sure to post an update when I have used it a bit and let you know how it goes. I hope to keep it right on my desk (long table) as I'm also die-cutting or embossing!!

Lisa

PS: Thanks so much for your wonderful comment !!

Oh, Bonnie, this a framed piece of art! Too small to be hung over the fireplace but perfect to display on a desk/ side table/ bulletin board to cheer and put a smile on someone's face every time they see it:)

Joyce said...

I just popped by to return your visit, and have been scrolling back through some of your beautiful creations. Wow--what a bunch of beautiful cards you have displayed. I can't believe I've never been by before. This card is particularly striking--I think I have this stamp, and have only done it with one color. I'm wondering how you got it to have so many colors? You are a genie.

Liz Williams said...

Bonnie, I love these pretty colors and your flowers look so pretty in that gorgeous embossed frame.
