Stencil It!

 Good morning fellow crafters I hope you are all good & staying safe! 
I'm not going to be around much this weekend as.......Katie & Harvey are moving out!!!!! So sad, I'm going to miss them both so much, but I feel privileged to have seen our little man grow in the last 9 months & thankfully they aren't going to far!
I would like to ask, if any of you would like to send her a 'New Home' card. She hasn't go many friends as she lost them when she split up with Harvey's dad!

Funny how we neglect craft items and then much later they become favourites! I love the stencilled background for your beautiful flower. Thank you for joining us at Try It On Tuesday, Chrisx

Heidi Weaver said...

Wow, Shell, I love the results you've gotten with your scan and cut. The stencilled background is gorgeous and I really love the very subtle sentiment, cut from that stencilled piece and slightly raised. But it's the flowers which take my breath away. Beautifully coloured and positioned. Thanks so much for joining us for our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this fortnight.
