Stop And Smell The Flowers - Timeless Rose And Other Blooms

“You’re only here for a short visit. Don’t hurry, don’t worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way. ” 1956 The Walter Hagen Story

I love flowers - who doesn't? :) And I love floral stamps. That's why I feel so blessed to be part of the Stampendous family as we have 'bucket-loads' of beautiful floral images and I get to play with them all! Pure awesomness!

So why don't you have a quick look at what my DT Sisters have been creating this week with their floral picks!
