Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it's a blob!

I so loved the tree I made on last week's card that I thought I would make another and I just love this Chinese proverb: 'The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now'.
All of the colouring for this card was done using Derwent watercolour pencils. They are a joy to use and the blobs are great fun to make. Which leads me nicely to this weeks Stampotique challenge theme which is 'Colour Blobs' and our hostess is lovely Arwen. All of the challenge details can be found right here.
The stamps I used are:
Wishing you a lovely day. Sam xxx
