Say it with....Flowers

Morning everyone. Bright and early here in South Africa, 4:36am to be precise. My little one woke me up early AGAIN! To be quite honest, I don't even know what it is to sleep in!! But the up side is I can update my blog nice and early (even though my fellow Australian DT members are all ahead of me in time!).

As you can gather from my title, the theme we are working with over at Annabelle Stamps this week is Flowers. Being here in SA, I didn't receive my lovely parcel containing all the new products that Andrea has added to her shop in time, so I have made do with some of my older Annabelle things. But, I have added some lovely flowers to my card! Do you want a little peak of some of the wonderful new products Andrea now has on sale??? Do ya, do ya?? Well ok then, here goes:

Petal Kits


And.... Copics Ciao Markers

We have also added a new DT member to our group of amazing ladies. Welcome SUE, know you are going to have a blast getting to play with all the lovely Annabelle goodness. I have added Sue's link to my side-bar.

So, should we move on with my card. I didn't realise that red was such a hard colour to photograph, so I really am not too pleased with the way my card looks in the photo's, it looks a lot better IRL. Anyway... here it is:

The stamp I used is from the "Jasmine's Cupcake" set, and I haven't used her in ages, so I thought it was high time! The sentiment is from the "I can fly" set. I added some plain white flowers which I coloured with my Copics to match my ribbon. This is the first time I have done this, and what fun it was. Andrea has white flowers, and Copics for sale, so you can do this too! The lovely bling in the centre of the flowers is also from Annabelle Stamps. They are just gorgeous! Speaking of gorgeous, I had to take a photo of all my Sprinkles, I ordered 5 new tubs from Andrea, and have stacked them all up, and they now have pride of place on my desk. LOVE my Sprinkles!!

I thought it might be fun to link my card to a few challenges this week, so here are the challenges that I have taken part in:
Simon Says - Distress
The ABC Challenge - Red
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes

I think this has been a record length post for me. Hope you have enjoyed looking at all the lovely Annabelle goodies. Hope you all have a blessed Easter. Remember what it's all about, ok. God is good, and great!!

Must check see what the time difference is between us!
I love the beautiful red in your card and what a good job you did colouring this image. Hope your parcel has now arrived and you get to play with all the new treasures.
