Freebie by Nina Brackett

Supplies:  Digital image and sentiment by Nina Brackett, MME Stella Rose pp, 
Fiskars Crest border punch, PTI button, embroidery floss and copics.

I love what Nina Brackett aka Crafting in Croatia creates.  She also has some amazing freebies on her blog.  Thank you Nina.  I used the one above that she created to honour her Grandma.

I grew up with lots of hydrangea's in the garden - and one was a beautiful blue obviously due to the soil's pH!  Living next to the sea/salt water obviously didn't encourage some things to grow but the hydrangea's loved the conditions. Here's a photo I took in my parents garden in 2007.

I paired the image (coloured with copics) with pp from My Mind's Eye - Stella Rose Hattie Collection.  I also added a PTI Ocean Tides button with some embroidery floss.

Thanks so much for peeking and I hope you have a wonderful day.  Summer has arrived here in Ireland with temperatures expected to hit the mid 20's today and tomorrow.  So in case I am not in blogland I will be in summerland!

Deirdre I have been trying to grow Hydrangeas but the deer seem to get to them before I do. At least I can enjoy the beauty on your blog and in your gorgeous card.
