Dandelion Girl

Hi dear blog friends, and welcome to my new followers.

I'm sure that like me, when you were a child you used to "tell the time" by blowing on the dandelion clock. Ah those were the days... long hot sunny days, lots of fun and no worries! If only life could be like that again eh?

My Card

This is Sylvia Zets Dandelion Girl from the Wee Stamps collection.  I die cut it with Spellbinders Standard circle and matted it with SB Lacy Circles. The backing papers are Forever Friends by Docrafts. The corner dies are Cheery Lyn Lace Corner Deco B. I die cut two flowers from SB Jewel Flowers and Flourishes and added a small WOC rose into the centre.  The main picture was a little dark and the flower not very visible so I did a close up. The little starry flowers are the bits  from the corner dies. A little bling in the corners and a little Stickles glitter on her ruffles and the dandelion and that was it. I decided to omit a sentiment. It can always be added later if necessary.

Well Friday was quite a nice day here and tomorrow promises to be better, so maybe Spring is around the corner. I did whisper that - just in case!!!

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Love and hugs from Christine xx
