A Spoonful of Sugar - Floral Fantasy

Good evening! Wow, what a fab day - the sun shone and shone all day.

My apologies for not getting out and about in blogland and seeing your wonderful creations, but I've been out and about with my family making the most of our time together and the lovely weather. I will catch up with you soon, I promise.

I did however take a bit of time to nip to my craft room to try out some new goodies (you have to don't you?)

Here's what I came up with.

I'm entering this in the challenge at A Spoonful of Sugar where the theme is Floral Fantasy.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I look forward to visiting yours.

Hi Clare

Thanks for your visit. Sounds like you are having a good time. We plan the beach tomorrow weather willing.
Love what you have done with your new bits & pieces. The flower is gorgeous and I like the shaping you have done on it. The colour scheme is great too.
