Fresh Cut Flowers


This cutie is called "Spring Blossom" and she's from the new Sarah Kay collection that you can get from Summer at Roses on Paper. Is there nothing greater than fresh cut flowers right from the garden? I went to a quilt show with my best friend Lynn and our good friend Claudia. When we stopped by Claudia's to drop her off, she took us out to her garden and cut fresh flowers out of her garden for us both to take home. There's something about the smell of the stems after they've been snipped. I just love it. And with winter coming to Maine, that smell of cut flowers is so refreshing.

I colored "Spring Blossom" with colored pencils and OMS. The designer paper is from Basic Grey called Gypsy, one of my favorites. I love the velvet flowers I used with her and the small flowers. You can purchase all of these from Summer so stop by and take a look around her shop. Not only can you get stamps, but you can also pick up everything you need for card crafting!

This little cutie looks so springy and fun. She gives me something to look forward to - new flowers! And besides, who doesn't love someone carrying fresh cut flowers? Enjoy!

Recipe: "Spring Blossom" stamp from Sarah Kay, Center Kisses from Prima, "Gypsy" from Basic Grey, Koh-I-Noor color pencils, Sansodor OMS, nestabilities, Jelly Roller clear pen, floral fantasy cuttlebug folder.
