MHK - Open Bloom

Hello, Crafters, hope your week is going well.  So far, my week has been fun.  I have spent a lot of time in my craft room instead of doing the dreaded cleaning.  I bet you know all about that.   ~grin~
I am going to get busy after I do this post while my boxer is at the groomer.  The vaccum seems to make him nervous now that he is older.  It also makes me nervous because I know that I am the one who will be using it.  :)

Okay, getting back to my card, I used a MHK Digital image called "Open Bloom".    I really like this image and it was easy to color.  I have been admiring the stamps by MHK, but this is my first image.
The images grabbed my attention back in May or April.  I stumbled onto a Easter card made with their "Bunny Love" set. The card was adorable so I started following the MHK blog.

Thank you, for stopping by today.  

I am entering this in the following challenges:

  9. Oh, this is just so beautiful! Can you let us know what you used to color the image? Why doesn't my art look this gorgeous, haha?

  10. I dread hoovering at the moment I have a new one and the suction is so powerful it almost lifts the carpet and is like a gym workout -luckily it is mostly flooring downstairs lol dread doing the bedrooms!!! Absolutely fabulous colouring I was sure this was a topper until I read the post-great CAS card
