Red Geranium

Hello and Welcome

My card today was made a long time ago but never shown and unfortunately did not photograph too well.

The image is an old, very detailed  Hero Arts stamp which only needed a little simple colouring with a couple of promarkers.  I used a matching coloured card for my embossed background and a Printworks stamp for the sentiment.

I used snippets of black and white card for the Spellbinders diecuts and sentiment tag.

I would like to join in with the following challenges:
Pixies Snippets Playground Weeks 289 & 290
The Flower Challenge Blog # 10  (Embossing Heat/Dry)

A very nice floral stamp - good to fish out some of the oldies now and then and this has made a great snippets card. Like the unusual sentiment

Hi Barb, love the card. That's a flower you don't see too often on cards and it's lovely. Don't know where I've been but you've been very busy since my last visit. Happy crafty week, Angela xxx

Hi Barb,
Thank you for giving me your message here! I have been stressed and confused for days. Di told me that these problems hit everyone who tried to take a look at my blog.
Yesterday I installed a new antivirus program, and now it looks as if it starts to work. But I am still not sure! Well, I hope you now can visit my blog again.
If you still get the same problems, please tell me!
Your geranium card is wonderful!
Hugs, Liv xx
