Spring Garden - Daring Cardmakers

Happy Friday!

I've been fortunate to spend some quality time with my parents as it's the holidays. It's wonderful to take it easy and recharge those batteries. I'll be travelling back home tomorrow so hopefully the traffic won't be too bad.  Nothing worse than hearing "are we there yet?" every few minutes!

The theme set by Kathy for the Daring Cardmakers this week is aptly named Spring Garden.  I've chosen hyacinths as I have a number of flower stamp sets from Sarah Hurley's Beautiful Botanicals range.

I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks to watercolour the flowers and the background. It was simply bliss sitting at my table painting. I am in a world of my own when I create and I love it. 

Before I go I must thank those of you who took part in the Challenge last week. It made me so happy to see you join in and I hope you'll have a go with this one too, especially with the long weekend! You can see more inspiration from my fellow team members HERE.

Enjoy your Easter weekend,
