Pick of the Bunch.....

Hiya all...Hope you are a lovely weekend and the sun is shining where you are. I actually managed to get out my sun lounger chair yesterday afternoon to relax in and read a book and then got to hot decided to came in and make a card.

I had a play with one off the new Pick of the Bunch clear stamp sets from Tonic Studios, designed by Ruth Hamilton. The sets include Roses, Fuchsias, Lilies, Rudbeckias, Chrysanthemums  and Peonies.Each set of stamps consists of flowers, foliage and garden creatures which look great used either together or separately.
You can find lots of projects made with these stamps over on Ruth's blog and also on blog tonic studios.

I love all the sets, but the Fuchsias are my Favourite (thanks Ruth)....The stamps print out so beautifully and are a joy to work with.

For this card I have used just one of the beautiful stamps in the Fuchsias set, there are 3 Fuchsias, 3 butterfly's, 3 ladybirds and 4 leaves....Great value.
