Flowers

We have had delightful temps this week, the cold spell has broke and it feels like Spring is on it's way. It's sad to see the news of the North East and all the snow they are still getting. At any rate, I'm feeling like flowers and gardening and know that isn't far away. I made 3 little garden girl ATC's this week useing precious pictures of floral hatted girls.

These 3 cards are exceptionally sweet, and viewed side by side like this are quite wonderful and uplifting. Thank you for your creations. I always love to come look, don't always comment, but I do look.

The composition is lovely and your choice of colors is wonderful. Did I read on here somewhere that you sell the pictured fabric, or was I just hoping? I checked your ebay site but all I saw was the finished product. Love your work.

These are wonderful....and they do make me think of Spring. I like the colors and the bits of lace and embroidery. It's all pretty and romantic.

These little cards are so cute. I love all the ones you've been doing lately.

Are these all on wool?

Jill said...

Wow! These are absolutely gorgeious! Wish it would warm up here....more snow on its way. Looking at these makes me feel warm. Love them!

Cat said...

To answer [Susan]-
I started w/ wool felt, felted in wool fibers, added pictures/words, then embroidery, then fused to back of black acrylic felt & did edge.

I have really been enjoying working with the wool felting!
