Well, that's it.  I have to confess.  A few months ago I was gifted with Tim Holtz Wildflowers dies and stamps and I am not kidding--since then, all I want to do is play with them.  They are so incredibly versatile.  I have made dozens of cards with them and I can think of a many more projects. They make me happy.  Here are a few of my most recent.  These were inspired by cards on Pinterest and there are so many featuring these wonderful dies and stamps.

These lavender stems were cut out of water color paper and colored with Distress Inks.  I did several versions of this card, one using Spellbinders fancy oval and some using paper doilies.  I dragged some white seam binding through a puddle of water colored with distress inks and dried it to perfectly match the shade of violet for my bow.  

And another version using the small paper doily.  Slightly lighter shades of ink.

Thanks for looking.  Get a little creative this week.  It's good for us.
