It's All About The Flowers!

Happy Mother's Day to all,
And welcome, it's a new month for Stamping Sensations and Penny black & More @ Allsorts challenges, if you didn't get the chance to join in last month's challenges this could be the one for you.

At Stamping Sensations this month the theme is 'Flower Power'
Although this card represents something sad, I did enjoy making it, I decoupaged the roses and added some glossy accents for dew drops.  I kept it quite simple without patterned paper as it suits the card better.

We have sponsorship this Month from

And of course, the Design Team have created some stunners to inspire you. Please do pay them a visit to their individual blogs - it means a lot to know you appreciate their efforts.

And now onto my second challenge creation for Penny black & More @ Allsorts, where the theme is 'Feature A Creature'
So you can use any stamp with an animal or critter on it for this challenge.  I used this cat for a Mother's Day card, I thought the flowers the cat is holding suits the occasion.

We have prizes from Penny Black, Crafty Ribbons, Sam, Marianne Designs
 Now isn't that a lot of prizes, definitely worth getting your animal stamps out isn't it!!!!!!

Now if you would like to be a GDT for us, all you need to do is make a creation to fit the theme.

I love the elegance of the rose card Tracy, but it's the fresh Spring yellows of the second that has to be my favourite today.

Hope you have a good Sunday.

Both lovely cards Tracy. I think the first one is outstanding. The rose is stamped and coloured beautifully and I love the way that you've echoed the oval frame with your other die cuts. A perfect sympathy card X

Two very different styles of card, the first so elegant and pretty and the second so springlike and colourful. Great cards. Hope you are enjoying your day.
