Wake up...

...and plant flowers every day! Even if it's fall and the rain is drizzling down. 

Challenges:
Less Is More: Autumn's Bounty
Craft Stamper: Multicoloured stamping technique
One Layer Simplicity: Turning to fall
A try to show the subtle glimmer.
Materials used:
Stampscape stamp coloured with Aqua Markers, spritzed with a mix of water and golden Perfect Pearls. Then stamped onto Bazzil Basics hammered cardstock.
The retires sentiment stamped with black Archival ink.

Thank you so much for visiting, it means the world! I hope you're having a wonderful week. I've enjoyed mine even it's a bit hectic at work with a lot of examinations. I went on my first jog in a year, the doctor told that I might not be able to jog again and felt miserable, but hey ho here we go again, I'm feeling blessed.

Love and hugs
Maarit
