Flower Power


I like to take this time to thank all of you who left me such beautiful comments on my Japanese Tilda  (Magnolia Stamp) card.  There is a little of you in that card because when I look at your creations I am truly inspired. 


I created this card for a challenge over at SSCC.  Isn’t she a cutie?  She is called Mimosa Autumn Walk.  However, Mimosa is walking amongst beautiful flowers not Autumn leaves. And if you look at her closely you will notice the smile that says she is thinking of someone very special. Gee I wonder who it is.

  14. Fran, I love your use of color, your card is wonderful. You might check your blog, your 'post a comment' is on top of your "you might also like" photos - it's very hard to see and might discourage someone from leaving a comment. We love it that you've shared at the SSCC 'flowers' challenge. C2

  19. Fran, she is great! All your work is wonderful.

    I bought prisma pencils right before the holidays and just don't seem to have the knack you do. I would love some guidance on what paper you use, how you get your colors so vibrant, shading...



Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on my Post. I so appreciate your compliments and hope you will come back soon.
Hugs, Fran
