Default Love Serene Sunflower!

I just had to post it! It has gotten some less than enthusiastic reviews, but I am a fan! I just stamped my first card today and I am in love. Sunflowers make me happy, I always try to grow a few in my garden (I have a lot of shady space). And I looked at the first page of it in the gallery after I uploaded my first card of it and it is the happiest, most beautiful page I have ever laid eyes on, all those lovely Sunflowers staring back at me!
And the colors that can be used are endless, even if trying to stick to true to life colors, Barely Banana, Appricot Appeal, So Saffron, Summer Sun, Ruby Red, Bravo Burgundy, Really Rust, More Than Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Yoyo Yellow, Marigold, Close to Cocoa.................................

I was surprised to read that this set had gotten less than stellar reviews. I really like it. In fact, it's on my wish list.

Your cards are very pretty.

I didn't love this set when I first saw it in the catalog. However, based on the amazing gallery cards, it's on my list!

I love sunflowers too!! I don't own Serene Sunflower because I bought the retires set, Summer Sunflower, last summer. I may have to eventually give in and own both. Now that's addiction talking. LOL!!

I love it too! I have a whole photo album on my blog dedicated to serene sunflowers. I have found it super easy to use with great results. Easier than trying to grow sunflowers, we had a bunch doing really well and then the woodchuck mowed them all down. I hate that woodchuck.

Mmmmmmm just looked at Summer Sunflower, love that one too, only if I had started stamping earlier.............I have seen some great sunflower sets from year past.
Bad woodchuck, bad woodchuck! I have had trouble too, with critters mowing them down just days before they bloom.

There is a patch of sunflowers blooming on a farm near us. They just make you smile! You can't help but love them.
I am so sorry I jumped the gun and sold my set. I now have heard about turning them into black eye susans, gerbera daisies, etc...I am probably going to reorder it.....ah!
