3 Florals

I have 3 cards to show you today.
They have all been coloured with Faber Castell pencils.
The colouring in helps my daughter while away the time when she
has her treatment.
I let her choose what ever colours she likes and then match them up.
Clear proof that I have too much card stock yet still yearn for more!   

This is a beautiful floral design by the very talented Beccy
Teemed with papers from LOTV but I think they don't sell them any more.

This one was harder to match up and I think that I should have put it on a 
  dark navy card and not the pale blue.

This one gave me the opportunity to use up those strips
of white card left over when I die cut a border out.
I would not say I am a hoarder but I do have a whole box of strips like this

Am going to share these with:

Wishing you all a wonderful day.

  1. Hi Margaret, your daughter's colouring is beautiful and I love the cards you made with them, all so pretty! I must say that I tend to toss those little strips in the recycle box although I have often wondered what I could use some of them for... Stay cool and send some cooler weather up this way! Have a wonderful week... Megan

  2. Beautiful makes Margaret, your daughter did a great job colouring them. I keep those strips I know what to do with them! Take care. x

  8. You've done a wonderful job matching the coloured images with the papers and card stock Margaret, the cards have all come out beautifully. I particularly like the background paper on the first card, it's very pretty and works so well with the image. Fabulous job!
