Welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday Design Team's October Blog Hop. The Around the World on Wednesday has been created by my lovely friend Angie McKenzie and comprises a group of super talented demonstrators from around the world. The Around the World Hop goes live on the second Wednesday of each month.

Our theme this month is the world around us, and for all of us that is so different. Here in New Zealand I am grateful to feel safe and secure and able to continue life in a similar manner to before - apart from travelling! With technology, I love that we can feel connected despite the distance between us, but am definitely looking forward to when we can travel again and see family and friends in person. Here's to our world getting back on its feet!

It is springtime here in the southern hemisphere and it is definitely my favourite time of the year. Everything is blossoming and growing, oh and it's getting warmer!

My cards were created with sunshine and happiness in mind! I love the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle, especially this gorgeous big sunflower. I sponged the background with Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie Inks, concentrating the Pumpkin Pie under the sunflower. The background has been splashed with water to create droplets, this is one of my favourite techniques and then the finished card has been splattered with the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint.

The gold trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack has been shredded and then wound around to create circles under the sentiment, it adds a little more sunshine and sparkle to the card. The Rhinestones have been coloured with the Dark Black Blends and add balance to the card. Colouring the Rhinestones with the Blends is a perfect way to get co-ordinating embellishments!

Next up on our Hop is Tatiana Tobin, I can't wait to see what she has created! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop.
