Sweet Simple Things

Power Poppy |SweetSimpleThingsHappy Tuesday! Back to work after a long holiday weekend. But it’s also the 5th of the month so that means a new digital stamp set from Power Poppy! This month Marcella has released Sweet Simple Things. Here’s what Marcella has to say about this image:

Imagine coming upon an old fashioned bee skep perched between cottage blossoms, with honeybees buzzing about to collect the nectar. Well, I once imagined this scene, and now I have reseeded the garden to bloom with foxgloves and cosmos, and two brand new sentiments. Share this one with your sweetest friends! Or just color it up for the sheer joy of it.

Be sure to stop by and visit the rest of the Instant Gardeners for some inspiration.

  2. Such a sweet new image this is and you’ve colored it beautifully. The gingham is simply perfect with it and the embossed background makes me think of bees buzzing around the garden. Oh, and that little bee embellie is the cutest thing! This sentiment from Bees in Foxglove makes a great companion. Love it all!
