 I was pleased to come across some dies for Echinacea or cone flowers which I particularly like,  but they had no stems so I used stems from a set of Sizzix flower dies.  Found a plain piece of background paper which was a magazine freebie which I over stamped with some trees for a bit of extra interest.

Thankfully we've been having some rain which has slightly cooled things down,  I'm not good with hot and humid conditions.

  2. Hi Val,
    these are gorgeous and so beutifully created.
    Great idea using the other stems.
    Love the colour choices.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  3. Hi Val

    Loving the combination of all of those dies .. .. and the colours are beautiful.

    Great background paper you have produced too.

    I hoped that you have had a good day. Much cooler here first thing but things have warmed up as the afternoon has gone on.

    Love Jules xx
    I then clicked

  4. Good morning Val!

    Tee hee .. .. not sure what that "I then clicked" bit is at the bottom of my last comment!!

    You asked about envelopes for my scrapling cards. My hubby has made me a template for making them. If you would like me to email the template over to you then just let me have your email and I will be happy to send it over.

    I understand totally if you prefer not to share your address though. (there is a link to mine under "my profile").

    Have a good Sunday Val. It is cooler and raining here today. The gardens will be having a happy day.

    Love Jules xx
