Coffeepot and a birthday cake

Hello there! How are you? I hope you are well and happy! This weather is certainly beautiful isn't it? I am loving the sunshine! The garden is a bit dry but I think its worth it!!! You'll be glad to hear we survived rehearsal yesterday and have one final one on Wednesday night before the shows on Friday and Saturday night! Fingers crossed we iron out some of the wrinkles before then!

Its been Coffee Pot today - we managed to make some pretty cards using stamps from hobbyart. Here's mine...

I love these sunflowers which are stamp of the month at present. The dragonflies are also from Hobbyart but a different set.

To make my card I created a background using pixie powders, then created another more orangey background and stamped on the flower heads. I created a third background that I stamped the dragonflies onto. After some fussy cutting I stamped the stems directly onto the first background, added the bow stamp and then stuck on the flower heads and dragonflies. I also stamped the dragonfly verse.

I did this over the weekend too - it was my mums birthday on Sunday ...the flowers were done using sugarpaste and a mould and the rest was painted directly on!

Hope you're having a good day!
