A Sign of Hope

I can't get enough flowers these days, it seems! They keep coming up in my cards. I tried planting  some daisies in my small garden but when I look out in the morning some critter has lopped the blooms off! 

I like stamped flowers, I can make them any color I like, HA! Today I pulled out the blues and went to work Copic Coloring the large floral spray in the Bouquet Builder 3 set (Waffle Flower.) 

I selected and fussy cut the flowers I wanted to frame the label die cut with. Adding pops of bold colors and stripes helps the focal point to stand out. Gold confetti dots and a bit of sparkle are the only embellishments. 

I loved this sentiment from Penny Black called "Blooming Sentiments."  I think it's a great one for these days, especially for a gardener or anyone who needs encouragement.  I've been feeling a bit "blue" myself today. Maybe I should have colored everything bright yellow! 

The sun has come out to shine for just a little bit. You know what they say about the sun..... it will come out tomorrow! It's only a day away.  I will go out for a walk now with a certain song resonating! Good thing I like that one! Sending you cyber hugs and well wishes.

Be yourself

     Delight in your craft

I'm happily playing along with Amy's great sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  My card uses the sketch on a vertical card base. OOPS?

Also joining Darnell's Challenge at NBUS as both stamp sets have never been used  until now!
