Lovely Hollyhocks

   I have fond memories of Hollyhocks and my Grandma. The side of her garage was lined with beautiful Hollyhock, I love spending time with my Grandma she taught me so much and took the time to just do things with me,nothing special just just spend time.I wish we all could just slow down and spend more time with the ones we love.
   Now on to my lovely yellow Hollyhock card. I used the hollyhock stamp from Raisin Boat called Bloom.  It has several pretty flowers for all of you fans of coloring like me. I used prisma colored pencils and mineral spirits to blend them. I stamped the flowers with grey momento ink to soften the outline to give the flowers a softer look. The mat is embossed with a sizzix embossing folder. I added the pop of green with some clunny lace from Raisin Boat.
Why don't you head over to Raisin Boats Blog for so more inspiration and maybe enter your own card in their first Blog challenge 
   Take time to just spend time with someone you love today.
