Just A Note

 Hello friends...

Are you doing okay? Thank goodness we have our hobby to keep us going. 

Today I have a couple of simple cards using stamps and distress inks - I used the same stamps and inks for both cards with  two different effects


I had so many flowers for my birthday from friends and neighbours, amongst them some lovely tulips


Which really prompted these cards. 


I'm sending these to a couple of friends who called round to leave cards and gifts for me - normally we would get together but it was good just to see them and have a social distancing chat.


Both the flower and butterfly stamps are old ones by Clearly besotted but flowers and butterflies never go out of fashion do they. 

Enjoy your day and stay well

I love the mix of colours on both Ros and a the white embossed tulips look terrific over the top, and such a pretty look to add extra coordinated colour to the flowers to highlight them and then the white embossed on black sentiment strips finish them beautifully. I'm glad you were able to have a distanced chat with your friends who delivered cards and gifts and these cards will be much appreciated as they are brilliant! x

A birthday?? Oh I've been so deep in despair that I've gone and missed it? Just keep celebrating, Ros - and happy birth YEAR!
I adore tulips - they're really a favorite - how did I ever miss this beauty from CB? LOve the way you've added their watery color - NO, butterflies and flowers NEVER go out of style!

These are absolutely BEAUTIFUL Ros! Love both the lighter and the darker colors, but both are still so soft with the water coloring! And no, tulips and butterflies never do go out of style and I love them anytime!! Hugs. :0)

Flowers and butterflies are timeless, and your backgrounds... simply gorgeous! Really love the colors and splatters. I'm glad you had some socially distanced chats with friends. We've been too long in this sorry state.

Tulips are definitely one of my favorite flower, that and Daffodils, Pansies and Violets. Yours are beautifully water colored, Ros! but then I love all your cards. Hugs and sending warmer weather your way, if even only for a moment!

I LOVE tulips and butterflies! FAB watercoloring!

Barbara said...

Oh, the cards are lovely! I've been scrolling up and down trying to make up my mind which coloring I like more, the stronger one? The softer one? And then decided: I don't have to choose! I can just love them both!
