Flowers Galore at Crafty Sentiments

Good morning all! I hope you are well? Just been reading about this bloglovin thing - something else to get my head around!!!! I've got a gardening journal to share with you today - the theme at Crafty sentiments this week is Flowers Galore and I thought that was the perfect theme for doing a new journal for me to keep track of whats going on in the garden and what I plant when - here it is:

The image is called PrimroseGarden flowers and you can get her here. I've coloured her with promarkers - fussy cut and stuck onto papers. The flowers are WOC cherry blossoms in various colours and the papers are from raspberry road. The letters are Tim Holtz Grunge Board and I've srayed them with dylusion sprays and used DI also to achieve the colouring.

The prize for the challenge this week is a beautiful rubber stamp:

She's fabulous - who wouldn't want to win her! You can find the link to the challenge blog here.

I'd like to enter my journal into the following challenges:
