I’m not going to tell you where they are, so if you haven’t found them you’ll just have go back to the beginning and start hopping! *wink*
Ok I have to admit, when I found out I was going first, I just about had a heart attack… because, I didn’t do the ‘normal’ what could be expected of me creation…
I… didn’t colour. argh!!
So naturally, I thought, Oh noooo, I can’t be first!
However… I still like my card. 🙂 And I am pretty certain, I mean I KNOW that there will be PLENTY of amazing colouring as you continue your way through the hop. 🙂
I wanted to play and show off these new vintage seed packets sentiments by Ann because as soon as I saw them this idea popped to mind!
It’s simple, but I think it is perfect for a garden lover. 🙂
I had originally attempted to use all four on the same card but for some reason my brain wasn’t getting it right. lol
I am sure one of you awesome card makers would be able to pull it off!!
Papers are Graphic 45 and Websters
Flowers from WOC
Flat back gems from Quixotic paperie
So now it’s time for you to continue the hop by hopping over to the gorgeous and fabulous
If you get lost along the way somewhere – just hop on back here to find your way!
