Good morning everyone...

...we hope you have enjoyed a good weekend - we are starting off the new week (and nearly a new month - can't believe that it will be May soon?) with the release of two new stamps:

Family Ted:

This is a real cutie, works a treat for colouring, decoupage and paper piecing and our teamies have made a lovely selection of card too, Georgina has combined 'Family Ted' stamp with the words 'baby' that have been made with our Daisy Dot Alphabet stamp set:

A beautiful new poppy stamp (with a smattering of daisies) absolutely perfect for colouring, decoupage and paper piecing and on the card below, Georgina has repeated the main design and also stamped the background using the stamp too:

  1. two beautiful stamps - love both of them but the samples of the poppies - especially goynors really sell this one to me - stunning work - my favourite flower is the lisanthus - love it xx

  2. My favorite flower has to be the Snowdrop, I read an Enid Blyton book as a child where lady 'rang the first snowdrop' to welcome the spring. I only have a small clump of snowdrops in our garden, but each spring when they flower I will go and 'ring' one of the tiny flowers.

  3. Another couple of winning stamps from you, both are so lovely, and I can see lots of occasions that they would be perfect for. My favorite is the Poppies though. Find it hard to say which is my fav flower, I love so many, but maybe the Sunflower, the wonderful golden colour of the leaves, they way the flowers stretches up to the sun and of course the seeds are food for the birds. yes, definately the SUNFLOWER, Kate x

  4. Gorgeous stamps and what lovely cards by the DT. My favourite flower is a rose so much so that its the theme for my wedding next year bright red naomi roses x

  5. WOW!!! These really are so beautiful. The teddies are adorable and I love the poppies.
    Your DT creations are wonderful and so inspiring.

    My favourite flowers are Sweet Peas. My granddad always grew them in his garden and in the summer he would always pick me a bunch to give to my mum. So they really do hold such special memories for me. They smell gorgeous too!

    Thank you for the chance to win

    Hugs Sue

  6. oooh we are loving to hear what your favourite flowers are, thank you - you are making us very cheerful x

  7. Two lovely new stamps and super inspiration from the design team. I would have to say that my favourite flower is the lily. Nothing better than walking into a room and having the wonderful smell of lilies in the air.

  8. I to love freesia for the smell and colours, after that it has to be lilies (which I buy every week) and then sweet pea, as My departed Dad grew loads and the smell was divine, my precious link to him

  9. Those teddies are soooo cue and the poppies are gorgeous. My favourite flower varies according to the time of year. I always love to see the different plants emerging again from the soil. I do love the Spring flowers especially daffodils but overall the rose is probably my favourite.

  10. The new stamps are so lovely, and I would have to say that my favourite flower is poppy, as that is my only granddaughter's name

  11. What great stamps & lovely samples by the DT.
    My favourite flower is the pansy, sweet little faces that brighten up the garden.
    Happy Crafting

  12. All these cards are beautiful - especially love those poppies! My favorite flower is the lilac - I could look at them and smell their heady perfume all day!

  13. Both of these stamps are wonderful.
    My favourite flower is the Coneflower. I love how the petals point backward, the feel of the picky center, that they have a long blooming season and because of the sweet little yellow finches they attract.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  14. I love both the stamps and would love to win, I particularly love the cards Donna and Lyndsey have made, my favourite flowers are Anemonies.

  15. Such pretty stamps! Am I allowed to have 2 favourite flowers? I love daffodil, especially the miniature ones and I also absolutely adore pinks, they are just so pretty.

  16. Hiya girls,

    Really love the new teddies stamp and the poppies are so useful and don't have to be just red !!

    My favorite flowers will be Lily of the Valley as I adore the smell, but more importantly they remind me of my mum....

    hugs to all,

    Diane xx

  17. I love all flowers and adore Freesias but I have to choose Sweet Peas because they grow for me whereas Freesias don't and because there are so many colours and the smell is divine.

  18. beautiful stamps... my fav flower is lilacs - love the smell in the spring :)
