New Hydrangea Die Cut Set

Don't you just love it when you get a new item to craft with!?!  Using it for the first time is sooo exciting!  I really enjoyed playing with this item.  It is a die set from Impression Obsession of a hydrangea.  I have always loved that flower as it reminds me of my childhood.  They grew so beautifully at my Aunts house.  They reminded me of big pom-poms!

I had to punch a LOT of the tiny flowers, lol!  I used 3 colors of lavender to give it a bit of dimension.  I really like how the flower came out!  I know this die will be used again and again.

Thanx so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful week.

This card caught my eye because I love hydrangeas, my grandparent's house was surrounded by a hedge of them, they looked so beautiful when they were in flower and this new die is so lovely as the centre piece of your card. .thanks for entering our challenge over at Fussy & fancy and good luck xxx Annie

  10. Wow, Joanne, this card is so amazing! How did you have all that patience? It paid off. I would never be able to give this card away, it's such a labor of love. I hope your dad is doing okay. I know what it is like to be tied to my home, you think you'd love having all the time to craft, but it just doesn't work out like that. Have a wonderful weekend!
