Tuesday Trigger

Tuesday Trigger

This week's Tuesday Trigger over at the Moxie Fab blog was a fun one so I decided to play along.  Just love the colour combo and the felt, rolled flowers were such a great idea for a wreath theme.

I decided to make some rolled roses in various sizes as per the inspiration picture, and then placed them them around the edge of a round card in an attempt to mimic the wreath.  Used Verve's Lean On Me set as I just love the mix of fonts and how the sentiments just pop because of the big bold word in them.

The sunshine has finally returned again so we are all happy campers here.  A bit nippy, but I'll take it!  Provides a good chance to clean up the flower beds etc. for the winter, and of course, rake more maple leaves off the grass.

Have a fabulous day, and as the card says, know you are special :)  Your visits and comments always encourage me.
