Wake up awesome

It's that time of the year when Mother Nature is just about waking up. I am spotting more and more blossom on my walks to Dotty's.
 The fowl are starting to pair up too and I am sure in plants surrounding the ponds nests are being built.

My card today is one with a very positive message because at this time of the year we are all beginning to get a little more energy as the daylight returns. 
I used a distress oxide background. The stamp is Visible Image.
It is up for sale now at Dotty's Teahouse, Carshalton, SM5 2EP

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

Time Out unique I love that I was able to make so many unique flowers from 1 set of stamps.
Emerald Creek dares 3/3 Ordinary day
Creative artiste 3/3 anything mixed media
Happy Little stampers watercolour challenge 2/3 anything goes
A gem of a challenge 2/3 anything goes
We love to create 2/3 anything mixed media

I also made something that I could join in with the birthday celebrations over at my friend Brenda's challenge, A Vintage Journey. They are celebrating  their 5th birthday and want us to make something to celebrate our own crafting journey. In the 5 years since their blog started I have embraced mixed media and love incorporating it in my own art work...Jane's Journal Style of course!
They are very hard to photograph but I used a gelli prints background made using my Art Rebel Visible Image stamps and some Tim Holtz paper dolls.
Happy Birthday A Vintage Journey! Thank you for all your wonderful inspiration and thanks to Brenda for being such an amazing friend and artist.

  4. Isn’t it wonderful to see those beautiful blossoms emerging and filling our senses with such gorgeous perfumes? Great photos of those at the ponds. Love your card to reflect our more positive feedings at this time of the year. Thank you for creating three fabulous mixed media pieces to celebrate our 5th birthday at AVJ, they are amazing, wonderfully textured with fabulous layering and lovely paper dolls to complete the compositions. Friendship is a two way process and you have helped me tremendously especially when I broke my ankle but we also share so many common things especially our gardens. Thank you for being there and for your support and love. Have a wonderful weekend. Huge hugs xxx
