Flowers, FATE and friends...

Here's the story for today...

By now I'm sure you know that I'm addicted to flowers.

So, I designed this poinsettia for studio 490. Now keep in mind, I told no one about this & didn't show the stamp to anyone.



Take a look at the Trinket jewel flowers Maya Road made...a PERFECT fit. And believe me...they give NO sneak peeks to the design team...EVER.



But wait...there's more...

Look @ these felt flowers they made. Could they possibly fit the poinsettia too??


YES...it's fate & another option for using the stamp and the flowers.

TOTALLY...unplanned... FATE @ it's best.

I LOVE it when things are a perfect fit!


Now on to the friends part of the story...

Somedays it's hard to take the time to post & get very few comments. It's NOT fun to talk to yourself...(hint...post comments!)

ANYWAY...this makes it all worth it.

I got this email from Sarah today...she's a blog friend from Australia.


Your fabulous work inspired me to create a card for my monthly Inkurable Stampers challenge example, so I thought you might like to check it out! :)

Thanks for all your inspiration - I love checking out your blog regularly! :)

Kindest regards,

Sarah Schwerin


So...it IS worth it!!! Check out Sarah's art...flowers, distress inks & grungeboard. It's outstanding!!

Thanks Sarah...you made my day!

Hi Wendy - Okay, I'll leave a comment :-) I read your blog and admire (no make that drool) your art. :-) Actually it's because of you that I bought my first distress ink pad and I bought faded jeans! Haven't used it yet ... maybe tomorrow, have some things I have to complete today.

If you come to Malaysia let me know ... I'd like to do one or two or more of your classes! heehee

Cheers
Rachel
