Simply Soft Blue Agapanthus

Can you believe that it's nearly November? Not long 'til Christmas either! If you are yearning for those long gone summer days I have a card for you that just says 'summer' to me.
My Mum has the most gorgeous garden and in the summer it is full of Agapanthus plants - huge clumps of beautiful blue flowers fill the borders and I love it. So when I received my new hostess set Simply Soft one of the first cards I made with it was with big, blue Agapanthus blooms.

It's a two-step stamping system and the stems were stamped first using the new In Colour - Lucky Limeade. I then used a Pool Party marker to colour my stamp and add  in the flowers - I used a stamp positioner for this too. Pool Party card stock was used on Whisper White and I added a little silver clippy thingy to attach the sentiment.
Hope this brings back some fond memories of summer for you oh - and don't forget to alter your clocks tonight. Just think we get an extra hour for crafting tomorrow!! - See you soon - Jacqueline xx
