Flower Flourish

Hi all
How are you.. I hope you have had a good week. I cannot believe we are now in February.
I have been playing with the Honey Doo stamps I bought the other week from the craft show.
I stamped the  main image on to white card and then heat embossed it in white. I stamped the sentiment in black and heat embossed this too.  I then used 3 colours of oxides and applied them using smoothies across the card. I really like the oxides they blend so well together. I stamped the main image again in the same way but this time I cut the flowers out and shaped them and glued them on top of the base flowers. I added the Nuvo drops to the centre of the flowers. Another product that I have just bought and I really like .. so more of them will be  going on my wish list. 
I mounted it on to black card which really makes it pop. 
Well are you are ready for the cold weather we will be having this week. Our cats and  dogs would rather just stay inside and sleep - well I don't blame them I would if I was them.   I am hoping to give the dogs a bath this week- wish me well as I get as wet as what they do 
I am still knitting the bonding square and this has now lead me back into crocheting - it must be 12 year plus since I have done this but I have ordered some yarn and I hope to start crocheting a throw very soon. Not sure how long it will take me to complete but I will post a picture when it is. 
Well I had better sign off now the other half is shouting at the football on the  TV ...
