Hello Spring Flowers

Only 2 places available in my next Stampers 6 Group starting April.  Get in touch now to put your name down.  I'd love to help you build your stash! 


We've had a lovely sunny day today and warm too.  So washing was out, windows opened, housework done and a nice long walk with the dog.  Don't you feel so much more energised when the sun is out? 

Whilst out I saw lots of crocus' and I've used them as my inspiration for my card today.  

I started with a white naturals card base and punched out 3 Petite Petals flowers.  I marked the centre of each flower with a pencil so I knew where to place my flower centres.  I used one of the little stamps from Summer Silhouettes and stamped it in Crushed Curry adding a few extra.  I then used one of the stamps from Gorgeous Grunge to create a pattern and stamped it in Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum and Wisteria Wonder.  Slightly offsetting each time. 

On the front I stamped another Gorgeous Grunge image in Garden Green.  I outlined the punched flowers using my Stampin' Write Marker Elegant Eggplant to make them stand out a little more. 

My sentiment comes from the Four You set and is stamped in Elegant Eggplant.  

Please excuse my finger in the photo holding the card shut.  

Here's how the inside looks. 

Speaking of walks.  My husband surprised me with a late Valentine's break as he was away on the 14th Feb.  

We went to Pitlochry at the weekend.  A gorgeous area of Scotland and somewhere we used to visit a lot when we stayed closer in Perth.  Actually 14 years ago we started a walk which was in a book called Scotland's 100 Best Walks with my son in a baby carrier.  We never finished the walk.  So one of our main aims was to complete it.  And we did, 4 hours and 20 minutes later!  

Here's some photos

After such a long walk, we limped into the first coffee shop back in Pitlochry and ordered pancakes with toffee sauce and ice cream.  Mmmmm It just hit the spot! 

Hope you've had some lovely spring weather with you!  xx

What a good idea and so effective with the punched out flowers and the design on the inside piece.
Yes, that is a lovely walk, one of the best in the world.

What a fun post, Aileen! Thank you for sharing those beautiful photos and your weekend hike. It didn't make me want to go for a walk, but it sure did make me hungry!!

Your card ROCKS! I am pinning! I just love how you've designed the peek-a-boo flowers to look through to your inside design! Mwah! Hugs, Darnell
