Hugs and Kisses

Hi Friends!
 
Here I go again with those colors lol! Except this time I at least incorporated some turquoise!
 
 
 The background is a die from Altenew Plaid Cover Die , and I painted this flower awhile back and I can't remember where its from, maybe one of you know? I think that's a sign I have toooooooo many flower stamps lol!
 

USE PLAID
 
I hope your having a great week? Redding temps have been in the three digits for weeks now and its getting very old. I have lived here 41 years and I don't remember having so many straight days of over 100. My birthday is this weekend and I was hoping to get out of town, but that won't be happening until the first week in August. I plan to get some heat relief at the coast!
 
Hugs, Char

GASP! Your magic with this palette continues to amaze, and pairing the stunning bloom with the turquoise/plaid background is nothing shy of sensational! Breath-taken-away! Your plans to escape the heat for a bit sound great; hopefully, you'll 'cool down' and return, relaxed, refreshed, rejuvenated! We're currently on a little holiday right now...straight into a place where the temps are hovering in the 90s! Quite an adjustment, given our temperatures in Alberta rarely reach such highs...and if they do, it's for but a matter of days. The heat is nice...but I need to watch my 'limit' being reached *grin*

What a neat plaid die & I love the addition of the turquoise here, Char! Stunning flower & I know what you mean about having so many flower stamps! In fact, I won't let myself get the latest 2 I want, but luckily friends have stamped & sent them to me--now to sit down & color! Wish you were here & we could do it together--at least we're not in triple digits! Come up to our coast & I'll meet you--I know it's too far, so have fun where you go & happy, happy BD! Big hugs, Greta
