Bloomin' Heck, Flowers Again!

Evening all, hope you've had a good day so far.....welcome to my new followers, hope you can pop in regularly.
'Our' baby was due today, but so far she is showing no signs of wanting to appear.....I've seen Emma this afternoon and she looked so well.....I'll keep you all updated though, as and when.
The cards I'm showing tonight were made with the new stamps from Sheena Douglas....

All cardstock is from  

All the flowers and leaves are made with white 'linen' cardstock which has been inked with Dylusions and Cosmic Shimmer Mists.

This background is cream 'linen' cardstock and again the flowers & leaves are coloured with Dylusions, and spray inks from 

I don't actually like cutting out, I prefer die-cutting. However I did cut the flowers & leaves out and ended up with numb finger ends for almost a week! Good excuse to get back to die-cutting ;-)
Please let me know what you think....catch you all in a day or so,
be good!
Barbara xx
