OLW 59 Inspiration!

Hi from coffee towers, I hope all is well with you:0)
I'm losing it with the internet or blogger or my computer, haven't been able to do anything at all so far today. Hey ho, patience Gay :{
Susan at Simplicity has challenged us to take inspiration from  a picture from Pinterest but you'll have to pop over to check out what it's like because I'm afraid I can't load it without freezing my computer:{


This is my offering, stamp by Blockheads.
One of my favourite sets but it's out of stock, if only for a couple of weeks. Calendulars, gorgeous flowers. Coloured with copics, sentiment PTI Signature Greetings,
I masked the bottom left corner as I wanted the image to fit the card.
Hope you like TTFN

Ooh . . . nice and bright and cheerful. Unlike your current mood! LOL! Wretched pooters . . . they are SUCH a nuisance when they go wrong!

Hugs, Sandra

Love your take on Susan's OLW. This image is beautiful and love your shading - very envious of that skill :)

Just as an add on - I occasionally shop at Craft Barn (too may goodies there!!) and wondered if there is a stamp set of their owls as used in their logo? Any idea?
