Basket of Blessing

Hi to all the lovely Bloggers out there!

Hope you are all very well and happy! Well today I need to share  some of the lovely sunshine we have been having in Cockburnspath! I just love the Sun! All the lovely Bees and the birds the sounds of the garden is so calming and so beautiful! I just love Mother Nature! When I was taking my photos there came a bee and sat on 1 of my flowers in my image, unfortunately I was just that second to slow to capture it in a picture. So it decided to come and sit on my camera while I was taken pictures.

Well it is Tuesday and another lovely challenge from SweetStamps.com

We have another Technique Challenge once a month and is ending on the 14 September. 

The theme for that challenge is Masking Technique 


Here is my Recipe!

I am so into folded cards these days and is having fun!

Well I made a Stepper card with White Linen Card Stock
I layered it with a heavy Yellow Gingham Card Stock

Added RicRac on top of the ribbon to the bottom of the front stepper
and the top of the back step. 

I positioned and glued my flowers to give dimension and depth to the

Did the same on the step of the stepper card too.

Added a double bow to the basket

Stepper from the side

I stamped this lovely combo of stamps from SweetStamps.com several times

Colored it in with my Promarkers and cut it all out and shaped them with a Embossing tool

Canary, Soft Lime, Gold, Bright Orange
Apple Cider, Olive Green, March Green
Cocoa, Vanilla and Caramel

These lovely Butterflies are from Cheery Lynn Designs 

I added a bit of bling to the bodice and the antennas

I created a banner that has been held by the 2 butterflies

This lovely sentiment goes so well with this basket and flowers

I added a bow in the middle of these 2 Garlands to give the illusion that the 2 garlands
is held together with the bow in the middle 

 Well I hope you enjoyed this project of mine and hope I could be of some inspiration to you!
