Flower Lady

It’s been a while since I’ve been in my craft room. We’re moving forward here in my part of the world with COVID-19 vaccinations and I am so proud to say that I’m part of the solution 😀 Occasionally, when I get a chance, you’ll be seeing me here playing in my craft room. Of course, the gals over at CAS Mix Up keep me curious to view their beautiful creations for their monthly challenge …and of course this stimulates me to play along. This is my paper piecing card, hoping you are all happy and healthy.

Thank you so much for stopping by, HUGz, Joanna

Supplies: Tim Holtz Runway stamp; Wow embossing powder; Versafine ink; Spellbinders flower die cuts; My minds eye pattern paper
