Hello Daffodil



Oh, the day I see these beauties pop up in my flower beds this year will be a good day indeed! Can't wait for Spring!

This lovely daffodil image is from A Year of Flowers Calendar Set 1 by Flourishes. I stamped on watercolor paper, watercolored with Tombow markers, and trimmed out the image. The middle daffodil is stamped and colored a second time and popped up over the first one. The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy's General Sayings set, and the patterned papers are from Basic Grey's Origins paper collection.

Last, but not least, the layout is Jen's Sketch For You To Try from yesterday. So sorry to be coming in late with my sample this week. If you didn't get to check out the sketch and other samples yesterday, take a peek today:
