Well I'm back with my second floral card in as many weeks, this one was for my Mum's birthday last week and it turned out better than I expected... as I am only just beginning to use stamps, they still scare me a little... one annoying thing... the tiny flower had no corresponding die so they were all hand cut, no Springtime hayfever out bursts please!
The peach and pear trees are in blossom, the flowering Cherry trees, the cherry and apple trees are still holding out on us, maybe they think better than to flower early as we are expecting snow later this week, of course on the day I have an appointment in the city, I hope it will not be heavy enough to close the roads, have to get across them to get to the train.
Here is my card:-
