Chicken Soup and a Winner

Hi

How are you on this Valentines Monday morning? I feel in a bright mood as I'm delighted to say that the sun is shining. In my garden the bulbs are starting to appear and that can only mean one thing............. Spring is on it's way.

Today also marks the first day of the free e-course I signed up for at Kim Klassen. Registration for the Photoshop Skinny-Mini stays open until 16th February so if you fancy giving it a go sign up what have you got to lose - Nothing! I'm hoping to pick up some basic skills and knowledge to set me on my way to creating beautiful photos. Well I can dream.

This is the inspiration this week at Chicken Soup
I created a card inspired by the white woodwork and floral print mugs
As a finishing touch I added one of the paper flowers I've been making with the addition of a button centre tied with some jute string. I cut the frame on my Silhouette using some pretty floral print paper and inside the frame I used some embossed kraft brushed with some gesso. 
And lastly I have the winner of my birthday blog giveaway to announce........
........................... Congratulations Sonja as your latest blog post said 'you've got to be in it to win it'! Make way for some stash coming your way.

Such a delicate card, Amanda, and love your source of inspiration too. I especially like the jute - such a great but subtle contrast of texture. :)
