Playing with Flowers

One of my absolute FAVOURITE blogs to go and visit is that of the delightful Tina from TravelingMama. Her wonderful way of writing and stunning pictures keep you always wanting more and sharing the journey with her!! I love everything she makes too and the last thing she did for the recent Embellish Magazine Ribbon challenge was a paper flower!
Tina has now put up a little video demo-ing her flower design!!! Click HERE to view yourself.
I knew I had to give it a try, so while the kiddies were watching TV this morn I did exactly that!
What do you think???
The other really lovely idea I've seen again recently was that of using your own "hand-writing" Over at Janeybel, Sarah-Jane has made some cards and added a touch of uniqueness with her own "stamp" if you like!! I wasn't sure if my writing was up to scratch but I'm actually really happy with how it looks!! I would never have thought that my writing could look ok, like that of the wonderful Dawn who was the one that originally inspired us all!!
Give it a try yourself and let me know, I'd love to check it out!!
Happy arvo,

that flower is fabulous - great choice of DSP, so classic and elegant! And your handwriting is perfect on that card. You have such warm and lovely handwriting, you should definately use it more often as a 'stamp':)
love you,
