Imagination in Bloom: New challenge for Imagination Crafts

Hello lovelies - thanks so much for all of your kind comments yesterday - the meeting went well - ish. It seems my dad has mixed dementia (alzhimers and vascular) and although that means he could have had medication he won't be able to because of all of the other meds he has (due to heart condition, diabetes etc.) He was actually pleased about that as he says that he can't be doing with any more pills. So he's happy - we're optimistic and long may that last!

Anyway onto brighter things - there's a new challenge starting over at Imagination Crafts today - its titled Imagination in Bloom - really that means we're looking for floral entries. Don't forget that if  you use Imagination Crafts Products you'll be entered into a draw to win £40 worth of goodies from the site.

Here's what I did using the beautiful fuchsia stamp.




This is an MDF penpot - I painted it using acrylic paint - then I stamped the image onto all 4 sides of the pot. I then painted the leaves in acrylic paint and the flowers in silkies from Imagination Crafts. 

I'd like to enter this pot into the following challenges:

  6. This is beautiful Rachel. Lovely colours too. Your are better to let your dad have his way, he has enough to deal with and you could make things worse if you try to make do what he doesn't want. Hopefully he will be fine for a good while yet. You just have to enjoy every minute with him that you can. Hazel xx

  13. Hi Rachel I guess it was mixed news yesterday but a positive attitude is sometimes more beneficial than pills I have seen that many times. What a gorgeous box really bright and cheery and I bet it really gleams in real life. Enjoy the rest of your day! Susan xx
