Purr-fectly Flower Soft Blog Hop



Happy Wednesday everyone!! I hope your week is going exceptionally well!! I am finally going great guns again...lol...and tomorrow I go for the REAL haircut...oh my, I never thought I would be able to wash my hair with a washcloth!!! lol so I will let you know how that goes!!

This is my very first time to participate in the Flower Soft Blog Hop and I am really excited that you could join me. If you have arrived here first, I hope you will go over to the Flower Soft Blog to begin the hop and make sure you become a follower of the blog so you will be eligible for some WONDERFUL Sweet Stuff this time--The Flower Soft Pastel Color Selection Box!! Our challenge was to use Flower Soft in a border so I hope you will let me know how I did for the first time!!!

For my card I used Bazzill for the base and all matting and DP are from the new Basic Grey Green At Heart collection. I stamped the Moments in Time Flower Soft stamp Purr-fect on Cryogen White and colored it with Copics, adding a touch of Sage Flower Soft Ultra Fine to outline the grassy area. To make the left border I first used pink organza ribbon and topped it with green leaf ribbon. I then dipped each of the tiny pink flowers in Raspberry Fizz Ultra Fine Flower Soft to give them much more texture. Finally I added a bow and a kitty charm and pearls to soften all of the corners.

If you would like this stamp and the two colors of Ultra Fine Flower Soft that I used for this card, just leave me a comment before you move right along on the hop to visit the very talented and creative Rose Ann. Remember to make your visits and leave comments all along the way!!

Thank you so much for your visit today...I can never tell you how much I appreciate each of you! I hope you will come back often. It means so much to me that so many of you are going with me on this JOURNEY I seem to have taken!!! Big hugs for each of you!!

Eulanda said...

Let you know how you did? You ALWAYS knock them outta the park. That's why I'm a follower! LOL! I love what you did with your flower soft but especially on your flowers. I have some felt flowers I'm going to try that on to give them more dimension. Great idea! The image is sure cute and as always, your coloring is gorgeous.
Good luck with the haircut. Interesting concept only washing your hair with a washcloth. You might be on to something! My thoughts are with you! Take care!
