Fabulous Flower Cards

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!  Its our May 2-4 weekend in my neck of the woods. We usually plant flowers in the garden this weekend but we picked them up last weekend since the weather was so nice.

We went with Begonia’s this year.  We’ve always planted Impatience but the year before, half of them died.  Huh?   I thought it was me not watering them?  Then last year we planted Impatience again and ALL of them died except for the Begonia’s.  Apparently, Impatience have a bad fungus problem called Downie Mildew.  None of the Nurseries in my area are carrying them this year.  Weird eh!!

Speaking of flowers, I have more lovely cards to inspire you today.  The Design Team have really kept me on my toes!  Check them out and please leave some comment love for all their hard work!
I promise I will have another freebie up soon…..

New Design Team

Thank You‘ everyone for all your wonderful comments. It really made my heart smile!

I received a lot of interest on the Design Team Call and to be honest, I had a very hard time deciding!  I wish I could include everyone but my original idea to bring on 2 DT members to start didn’t quite go that route due to the lovely response I received.  Goodness, I hope this doesn’t kill me!

A special ‘Thank You‘ to all the ladies that I had to unfortunately leave behind.  You are all talented special ladies, I really appreciated you taking the time to apply.

Please give a warm welcome to the new Design Team!

Bunny Free Digi & DT Call

Happy Easter Everyone!

Edited:  DT Details 
I’m not the most consistent in launching new images due to being busy with work etc. but I’d like to try to be more on the ball so was wondering if any gals would be interested in creating cards for me.   It would be a wonky schedule.  Some time during the month I’ll have a release but some months I may not, advance notice will be given. Would anyone like to commit to something like this?
If so, please shoot me an email with a few examples of your work or a link to your blog etc.
If its a go, I will pick a few applicants and let everyone know on April 26th.   (Date extended)
Good Luck and Thank You!

(Vent)  I am sad that I did not receive any responses.  Maybe because it was added in the middle of the post?  Does that mean no one reads my post?  Would anyone be interested?

(More Venting) I love to share my free images and sets. Please no that it does take time to create and even more time to colour them.  I appreciate everyone for taking the time to create an account to grab the digi set but if you do, please take a moment and leave a comment here.  It is wonderful that so many of you love my images but it is very disheartening when thousands have downloaded my free images without leaving any acknowledgement whether here or grabbed from my shop.   OK nough said!

Special special ‘thanks’ to all those that have purchased my images,  I so appreciate your support and I hope you have enjoyed them!  

Just a few new images in the shop.  Sorry, no cards this time round but please check them out. Here is one that evolved to my favourite bear.

Here is todays Free Digital images for you. I have to admit that I was going to scrap it but I decided to share it with you…maybe some of you may like it.   I am offering the line drawing and thought I’d try something new.  I have coloured  most of the image and left the bunny for you to add your special touch!

Hydrangea Bauble Free Digi

Hydrandra-Bauble-1443_2Hydrangea Bauble

Hello there,
New images in the shop and a new Free Digital Set!
The theme is Easter and the lovely Hydrangea flower.Although I am well overdue to launch some new images, I was in the mood to make some cards, so I was all crafty on the weekend.  Images were cut out with the Brother Scan n Cut…I love this gadget!
(if you pickup any of the hydrangea images, please excuse my spelling as I spelt ‘hydrangea’ incorrectly in the zipped up files)…oops!

Today’s free digi is a set.  The line-art is at the end of this post but if you wish to download the entire files you’ll need to go the shop.  It contains 8 files with 3 different colours. Check it out!

One other thing, you probably already noticed but I updated the shop with a new theme.  That was a job and a half….hope you find it a lot more pleasing to the eye.

Here’s what I put together on most of the new images.
Please leave some comment love!

EDITED:   Looking for a few Designers !
I know I haven’t been consistent launching new images due to being busy with work and I have to admit, I am playing with my crafty stuff too…one being Project Life. I started it and loving it but recently had to put that off.  Anyway, I want to try to be more on the ball so was wondering if any gals would be interested in creating cards for me. Not sure how I would go about this since I’m all over the place.  It would be a wonky schedule, like sometime during the month I’ll have a release but some months I may not. Would anyone like to commit to something like this? If so, please shoot me an email with a few examples of your work, your blog etc.(email: If its a go, I will pick a few applicants and let everyone know on April 20th.  Thanks!
