Yesterday I hosted a group of crafty friends here for 6 hours of embroidery, talking, eating & laughing... such an enjoyable day. We enjoyed our lunch under trees out in the gardens, it doesn't get much better !
I'm posting a card today that I created for Designs by Ryn . The stamps used for this card are two of Ryn's Flora Designs: Climbing Vine CM-F17 & African Daisy CM-F1. The climbing vine is also a nice match with Ryn's Vine Heart CM-F16.
The background was created with Taffy & Snickerdoodle Smooch Inks. I love the sheen of Smooch Inks, which is hard to see in photos.
The Climbing vine, Daisy & Quote were embossed with gold. The Daisies were also coloured with Smooch Inks. I blended Snickerdoodle around the quote (IO's C3671) that was stamped on a die cut using Spellbinder S4143. All were layered as shown.

I was also given the honour yesterday by Ellen at The Serendipitous Stamper of another Blog Award which originates from Italy and is intended to bring luck. You will enjoy a visit at Ellen's Blog as she is a talented crafter and includes some awesome tutorials. Ellen is a very kind hearted person who keeps quite busy with her family, volunteer work and DT functions. I don't know how she does everything.
I feel honoured to receive so many blog awards from my kind followers, but I think that I've received more than my share. I find it too hard to select blogs to pass the award onto and leave others out. Your kind comments & visits make blogging reward enough and also gives me encouragement to keep on creating.
That's all for now. Thanks for your visit and enjoy the rest of your weekend !
