Flower Power at An Oldie But Goodie

Good morning. Hope you are all keeping well and those not I wish well soon. Just a quick post from me today as I am getting on with all my jobs around the house before I have to collect my squidgilicious Grandson Oliver from nursery. Hope the rain holds off for at least a few hours so we can go for a walk along the canal and maybe even feed the ducks again :o)

So today's share is for the new challenge over at

and this week the lovely Francesca has picked the theme


Here's what I came up with:

I have used a 'Gorjuss' Girl image - this was one of my very first rubber stamps and has not seen sight of any ink for ages - I'm so bad!!! So this is my six months or more old item - don't forget to tell us what yours is.

Image coloured with FM's and PM'S

The gorgeous summery DP's are one of my new purchases - My Mind's Eye 'Fiddlesticks' - love the soft colour tones.
This also used:
Spellbinders: Blossom Die & Daisy Flower Topper
Woodware Dasiy Punch - small and medium
Adhesive pearls from stash
Kaisercraft Pearl Brad
Sentiment Craftwork Cards

Our sponsor this week is the fabulous
Bugaboo Digi Stamps
offering 1 lucky winner 7 digi images of their choice.
