Cherry Blossom

Happy Mothers Day to all the Mums. I hope you are all enjoying
your special day, despite the social distancing and lockdown restrictions.

Globally our lives have been drastically altered because of this
awful COVID-19, and we have all had to adapt to the major changes.
Of course one of the 'victims' have been our regular Craft Shows, so the 
organisers of one of the series here in 'Oz' decided to hold the shows online.

Many of the exhibitors offered 'show specials', just like during the real shows. 
Many of you may recognise the name Beccy's Place, as Beccy offers lovely
prizes for many challenge blogs. Beccy lives here in Australia, in Queensland,
and throughout the 1st virtual show, she offered fab 'Beat The Clock' specials.

One of Beccy's deals was this gorgeous stamp and die set which she offered
as a bundle. There are quite a few other stamps and dies in the 
Cherry Blossom set.

A closer look at the beautiful blossoms, coloured of course with
my trusty Promarkers. That ribbon looks a 'peachy' pink, but
IRL it is exactly the same pink as the background paper.

  3. You've done an amazing job with the colouring Jennifer, your blossom are gorgeous. You've managed to bring in the folds and rolls of each of the petals with your clever use of light and dark.
