GDT at stamping sensations

Good Morning all! Are you enjoying this sunshine??? Its been fabulous here and we're set for it to last for the next few days too. Fingers crossed.

Today I am lucky enough to be guesting over at Stamping Sensations where the new theme is 'Close to Nature'. They are sponsored by chocolate baroque so I had plenty of stamps to choose from. I decided to do a small canvas. I stamped the images, masking as I went and then painted in acrylic paints.

I used the sunny sunflower stamps plus a sentiment stamp also from Chocolate baroque.

I can't wait to see what everybody else has done. Hope you'll be able to join us.

I had a lovely time on Friday night at Wray Scarecrow Festival. They set a new guiness world record - we all had to dress as scarecrows.. there were 298 of us daft enough to join in!!!

Have a great bank holiday!
