Alrighty now, let's get down to my projects for today. All products are linked below as well as listed below in the Link Deli list.

 I recently got the Flower Pail stamp from Whimsy Stamps and wanted to color it up. It was a pretty quick and easy image to color up which is nice for a more novice colorist such as myself.

After my panel was finished, I die cut it using the largest die from the Spring Ovals die collection and then popped up the panel with foam tape. I decided to add it to a grey card stock base. I couldn't figure out a good place to stamp a sentiment so I decided to leave it blank.

I did decide to add a few drops of White Opal Liquid Pearls to the purple flowers which add a nice touch. I haven't used these in ages and now want to add them to all of my cards. :)


Alrighty then, thanks so much for visiting me today. Best wishes to you all. Crafty hugs and be safe! ~ Alanna

As mentioned above, your next stop on the hop is Sanna Lippert. Happy hopping!
