Sweet Sunday 135

Happy Sunday I hope everyone had a great week!  Today I'm back to share Karen's Sweet Sunday sketch for this week (SSSC135)


I needed to make a thank you card for my Aunt.  Last weekend I spent in Nelson visiting my parents.  The weather was so fabulous that my parents & I went to my Aunt & Uncles cabin to float on the lake.  It was so relaxing; except for my Mom when I accidentally tipped her floaty ;)  ANYWAYS my Aunt sent me home with some canning - some yummy jams!  Since my Aunt is also an amazing gardener I decided to use a flower image.


I inked up Stamping Bella's Flower Garden.  The image is stamped with mementos ink onto bella's bestest paper and coloured with pencils and mineral spirits.  In the centre of the flowers I added a little glitter.  After being so good and sticking to the sketch for a couple of weeks I had to flip it this time!

Please stop by the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers blogs to see their creations and if you play along don't forget to link your card on Karen's blog

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day
