Tea Bag Flowers

The sun is shining but the wind is still biting! And my hip is getting really sore again :( However I still managed to get down to the allotment and sow some parsnip seeds. The plan is to sow the rest of them tomorrow as long as it does not start to rain - it is amazingly difficult to sow some seeds in the rain. I have also managed to clear the pond slightly, so now you can actually see the pond from the allotment and watch the wildlife.

However, back to the point of the post - my new ATC collection. My Crafting Techniques group has a new technique for this month. Throughout the month of May I would like to see peoples hand drawn crafts. This is incorporated into the ATC collection - Tea Bag Flowers:
 These use four squares each and a different folding pattern. The monochrome pattern works really well for this technique, really making the flowers pop.

Birds were drawn onto each of the cards.
This collection is also to be entered into the following challenges:
SOS #199 Opposites Day (I am not usually one for Fancy Folding)

Thank you for looking, and I look forward to seeing some new faces in my facebook groups.
