Hello there, I hope everyone is doing well and ready for Spring. I know most of us over here in the Mid-West are soooo ready for outdoor activities. As much as I would love to stay in and lock myself in my craft room, It's just not possible. Especially since my Granddaughter is asking everyday to go to the park. So welcome Spring!

So as I was thinking of Spring, I thought of one of my favorite flowers, which is the Millinery flowers. Too bad I can't find them at  the local stores, I usually have to order them online. So I thought I would figure out a way to make them myself. I pulled out one of my Spellbinders die, "Peony", and I was able to make a cute little dup. I had lots of fun making them. Some of the supplies I used were stamens, Tim Holtz distress inks, McGill flower shaping tools, Glossy Accents, Prima chalk edgers in White, and some handmade papers or just regular card stock. I will ad a link to the YouTube tutorial on my channel. If you have time, I hope you will take a looksie. Have fun and be blessed and Thanks for watching. Big hugs, Carmen
