Good morning all! I haven't been blogging lately due to painting (ugg) and my brother is visiting from South Carolina (fun) We have been sightseeing and eating at some really yummy fun places!

I made this for my darling granddaughters birthday! When she was about this age we were planting flowers together and she decided she wanted her very own container of flowers! Well of course what ever the *princess* wants (within reason), Nana gets it for her! It also fits today's IC196 challenge! Thanks Lori!

The sweet Sugar Nellie image was colored using Flourishes *The Copic Collection* Crocus (V01-V05-V06-V09) and Spring Greens (YG00-YG03-YG06), cut out and popped up! The flowers are the top portion of a wheelbarrow filled with flowers (Santa Rosa, CA.) The clouds are sponged in using template (Mothermark) and bashful blue ink! The decorative frame is Spellbinders Die Cut!

Hope you all have a fabulous Labor Day weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!

I had a wonderful day - first we ate out, then shopped a bit, then walked along the ocean with an ice cream and watched the gigantic orange moon rise over the horizon!
