After some deliberation I whittled it down to 2 possibilities...golden and garden. I chose G for Garden and decided that gold would feature out there too, just right for a sunny Easter garden.
I also bought a recent new set of Paperartsy stamps, I had to buy them as the are all about Daisies.
Today is just glorious. The sun is really hot on our patio and I have got the washing out, I can hear the bees buzzing and the birds are singing their little hearts out.
The flowering currant is attracting the bees but I could not get a shot, they were too quick
My acers are waking up with lots of new shoots
and sunshine can only mean one thing
Time to get out the chairs and sit and enjoy a cuppa or two with this sweet boy under our chairs.
I stamped and coloured the Daisies with distress inks and fussy cut them out.
I also used some bister and die cut CL butterflies from the inky coloured card.
So once I had my background made I got busy with a little more stencilling and adding my embellishments.
Here is my finished page.
It will not be long before I have butterflies there too.
