All the way back in those heady days of July (like all of last month) I fell in LOVE!
I remember it well, it was a gloriously sunny day (it might not have been, I mean it was July in the United Kingdom after all). I was wearing a blue skirt, sea-green shirt and red shoes (I was probably in dark trousers and my altered Hong Kong Phooey t-shirt), my hair was rich, flowing and radiant (yeah, most likely grey, piled on my head waiting for a dye). I was working hard, rushing towards my project deadline for Blitsy when IT happened.
It hit me hard and fast! BAM! I’m in love!
I made some Mixed Media Keepsake envelopes (with a tutorial and a free template hint hint!) and fell in love with painted Scribble Flowers!
[Just so that you know I’ve used some affiliate links in this blog post.]
It is funny how these things happen isn’t it? But what can you do when love hits you? I just had to make some more painted scribble flowers, so I kept on going and made a birthday card with them.
My painted scribble flowers use the My Favorite Things Lisa Johnson Designs Circle Scribble Flowers as a base. I stamped out the block images and used them as a size guide rather then getting all carried away if I did them freestyle, ‘coz I would you know and before you knew it there would be one giant flower and no room for anything else! Not a bad thing, but not the look I was going for!
Aww love, how it doeth affect you (and seemingly change your memory of actual events and usage of the English language, apparently) *Swoon*.
What (or who!) have you fallen in love with recently? Do share!

Your Birthday Card is very pretty. Handmade personal cards are such treasure to make, send and receive.
thanks Wanda, I started as a cardmaker so it is kind of my comfort zone! 🙂
You id make me chuckle with the way you started this post…I had visions of another of your fabulous stories. I love the card Kim and those scribble flowers are wonderful.
At the moment I am loving my pens again and really enjoying some "me time" colouring as well as the general crafting colouring.
Glad I could make you chuckle Toni 🙂 🙂
There is something about colouring that is just so relaxing isn't there? Great thing to be in love with!
Those flowers are rather lovely
Hiya Julie, thank you 🙂 I'm so glad you like them! Kx
