I'm loving all the flowers coming out in my garden. I've only been in my house since February and watching all the beautiful flowers come to life is like a wonderful surprise everyday.
Today I spotted this flower in the corner of my garden but I have no idea what it is.

Any ideas anyone??

I'm also waiting for my hydrangea's to flower so I thought I'd make a card using the hydrangea in the Best of Flowers stamp set while I wait.

The detail on this stamp is fabulous, I'm pretty sure the photo doesn't do it justice.

The first set is 'Best of Flowers' released today and priced at £13.95 for the clear mount set.

The never-before seen image on this set is the daisy which also co-ordinates with the 1 1/4" scallop circle punch.

Here's a card I made using the set.
