Bluebells, not many, but Bluebells!

 Hi everyone, after yesterdays's snow we've had a bright start to the day.

Not that I needed sunshine on Thursday when we went for walk at Fletcher Moss - I was thrilled to see Bluebells - only a few but I also have some new stamps, designed by my lovely friend Sarah Anderson for The Artistic Stamper which had arrived a few days earlier.

I was doubly inspired to make this page this morning. Sarah's stamps are fabulous, these are from the bluebell set with some grass from the Daffodil set. I added some paint spatters to represent the sun and the snow.

I don't know where this quote came from but,yes, they are!

Here are the Bluebells I spotted, by next week they will be flowering fully!

I am linking to Art Journal Journey's theme 'Inspired By' which was chosen by Eileen. Sadly Eileen didn't recover after her surgery and Erika and I are co-hosting this month. 

I like to think that Eileen would have approved of this one.

I'll be back with more photos from the walk on Tuesday.

Thanks for looking, Chris

I think Eileen would approve. I love the new bluebell stamps. And the beautiful flowers too. I am excited to have my crocuses finally blooming. I love seeing you have tulips to see on your walk. Hugs-Erika

I've never seen a real bluebell before, but I totally agree that Eileen would have approved. This is a great entry for Art Journal Journey, too, dear Chris. Thanks for co-hosting.

Its a beautiful bluebell stamp Chris and a great page. As always late calling in and catching up, I don't know where my head goes off to these days.
The photos looked great as well, wild flowers are a joy to see.
Stay safe.

A beautiful page Chris!
Our tulips are starting to open, and I'm looking forward to seeing our bluebells soon. It just needs to warm up a bit down here!
