Fall Hydrengeas

This week's Inspiration Challenge on SCS had is visit The Bella Cottage. I used THIS lovely Jeanette Donaher Spring Hydrangea photo as my inspiration, but I saw a bunch more items that inspired me at this lovely shop.

I used my new Joy! Crafts Hydrangea die that Carol at Chocolate Crafts and Bears oh My made me buy (just kidding but she is a big Enabler). Took a little time, but I love how the flowers came out. My sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Designs so I am entering it in this week's Anything Goes Challenge - I love this sentiment as it works for so many occasions.

I added some fun glitter from Sparkle and Sprinkle to the centers of my Fall Hydrangeas so I am also entering this in the Sparkle N Sprinkle September challenge (my second entry) which is to use glitter, embossing or flocking on your creation.


Hugz and have a great weekend!

  1. Love your Fall hydrangea, Nancy. And, it does look so Fall-ish..leaves, too. Yes, that Carol can do some enabling. Ha
    Off to the ball game in just a bit. It's a night game and I like that.

  16. I thought it was you that talked me into buying this die???? lol Hey I was playing with mine last night too. I really like it. It was a good purchase--you know we both love Hydrangeas. I still have the birthday card from a couple years ago that you sent me with the big Hydrangea on it. It is so pretty-it's in a glass frame in my craft room so I can look at it. This is so beautiful with the shabby chic color combination. I like the way the leaves are turned up on you flower. Love this sentiment too. It's just beautiful.
    Bear Hugs,
    Carol
