June - using a Punch

Hello crafting friends,

Normally at this time every month, I'm taking part in a blog hop, but somehow there was a glitch with the list and a few of us found our links were gone. I'll share what I'd done anyway.

The blog hop is all about using a punch in your design. I knew straight away which punch I wanted to use, and that led me to the layout and photos I wanted to use. My favourite flowers are daisies so when Stampin Up brought out their daisy punches I had to have them! I've also used some recently retired 12x12 papers for my design.

The punches come in two sizes, which you can see in photos below.

My garden has become a bit of a haven for me this past few months. I've never been a gardener which used to frustrate my dad who always said a garden should produce some sort of food as well as flowers. Mine did neither until this year, we just had a couple of small trees and the rest of the space was grass (and weeds). However, since losing my dad to cancer back in April, I've found it comforting to spend time in the garden. I feel closer to my dad in a way, I am now growing both flowers and food! I know my dad would be pleased, and of course, some of the flowers look like daisies 😁

I got so carried away using my punches, I had enough daisies to create a double page spread! I've left room to add a couple more photos of the fruit/vegetables as they ripen.

Hopefully next month I'll be back with my fellow Ink & Share hoppers.

Bye for now and happy crafting
