Here is my card.

Blooming is the name of a stampset by Studio Light. The flowers in this stampset are designed by Karin Joan. I really love the style of these stamps. 
Here is a first card for wich I used the stampset.

The brush strokes in the background are made with a stamp by Gummipan. The flower is paper pieced. And how true is the sentiment! Got it once on the Art Specially event.
Thank you for visiting!

Paper piecing

After watching a video by Jennifer Mcquire, about Paper Piecing, I felt enthusiastic  again. In the past it was one of my favorite techniques. But it was some time ago I used it. So, I took some paper pads from my closet and had a quick start, and made some cards. Here is one of them.
If you like to see more of Jennifers work go here:
The papers used are by Basic Grey.
The stamps are by Newton’s Nook Designs.

My backyard is full of snowdrops, wich I love! It is a sign of spring is coming. Not long ago I found a die of snowdrops I couldn’t resist. 
With this die I already made several cards, and this is one of them.

You can add as much snowdrops as you like, and make lovely arrangements.
The sentiment is dutch and says Happy Birthday. The background stamp is by Simon Says Stamp. The oval die I used for the patern paper is Hero Arts. Added some raindrops.
Just made a quick photo of snowdrops in the rain right at my backdoor.

And oh, you see the raster? There’s one of my roses and it has new shoots already! And it is only february...Can’t wait for it to give flowers. But that will take some months I think.
Thank you for visiting.

For the children I baked little muffins, decorated with creme, unicorn sprinkles, and a ladybug cut with my Cricut!
