Crocus Do Not Bloom In January Here


For Christmas, my DS bought me the Year of Flowers set that was just released by Flourishes. As I am just learning to use my Copics, I think this was a perfect gift for me to practice on. Crocus always make me smile because they tell you that spring is around the corner! Crocus, however, do not usually bloom in January here in Pennsylvania. At the end of February/beginning of March would be the best shot around here, and that is only if we have an unexpected warm spell.
I created a frame for this little floral using a scrap from a Nestabilities. I sponged and used my crackle stamp. My dp is an unknown. I used some deep purple ribbon from Gina K. and some very deep purple gems as my accent. If you have not seen this wonderful set of stamps, you must check it out!
