How's that for making your heart sing? Nothing says Spring like the Dogwood trees in blossom around here. I have several in my yard and when they are in bloom I just want to sit out there and stare at them! To me they signal the coming of Easter and warmer temps in the Lakeway area! The centers of the flowers are covered with colored Flower Soft; I just swipe my ink pad of Ranger Distress Inks onto a surface and then drop the Flower Soft into it and rub it around until it takes on the color. Let it dry and apply glue to the center piece and then dip into the Flower Soft. Easy Peasy! Susan Tierney Cockburn has aced these flowers. The Susan's Garden dies are just amazing and her tool kit is like no other. So it just makes sense that I use her tools to make flowers. Problem is she is creating these dies faster than I can purchase them. I promised myself everything in moderation this year! I promised myself I would use what I have...but that doesn't mean dies doe it? Help me out here...I really didn't mean dies....did I?
OK that's it for me this morning. Hope you have a great day. Remember it is Friday and you need to get ready cause tomorrow is the weekend!
