Beautiful Flowers

Morning all. I've been going through my computer looking in my photo files and finding cards that I forgot I'd made. One of my favourite stamps is the Lily stamp from Chocolate Baroque. I watched Glenda demonstrate this stamp a few years ago with Derwent Pencils and loved it. Mine is coloured with promarkers.
I was lucky enough about 6 weeks ago to see one of these lillies in full bloom while walking our dog. I stopped to chat to talk to the lady whose garden it was in and she invited me into her garden. She explained that alot of the plants were self seeded but hidden in the corner was a large bird carved by a local artist from a dead tree. I was amazed as it is only carved on one side and can't be viewed from the road. I love wondering looking at all gardens big or small, you see alsorts of hidden gems. The rain is back today and I'm hoping it will clear soon as I'm wanting to put my bunting up this afternoon to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee. Debbie

Wish I was there

I love to colour in and when I saw this stamp thought it would great to help with a little down time. I'm not sure where the image is drawn from but would love to be spending summer holidays there walking our dog with the family. The happy birthday stamp is from Chocolate Baroque and is being sold in aid of the PSP charity. The words have a lovely font and it only cost £3.98. A small amount for a very worthwhile charity.
Thanks for stopping by Debbie

Sunny Sunflowers from Chocolate Baroque

I'm very behind with my blogging at the moment as I've been trying to stay away from my computer. I have been putting the finishing touches to wedding invitations for a lovely couple who are getting married in December. I've really enjoyed making them and they are now ready to be delivered. The girls on the Chocolate Baroque Design Team have been working with the new Sunny Sunflowers Stamps and the samples I must say are stunning. The creations will be posted over on the DT website.
Please pop over to the site, leave a comment and Glenda is giving away two sets of these stamps. Good luck Debbie
