Stamping Sensations Challenge for March

Good Morning! It is the first Sunday of the Month and time for a new Challenge over at Stamping Sensations! This month's theme is...........

***Close to Nature***
As the title suggests we want to see your projects inspired by the natural world this month..........
 I feel closest to nature when I am out walking in the countryside, so I am sharing the card I made for my Dad's birthday with Hobby Art Stamps (Country Ramble Scene-it set). I water-coloured it with a mixture of Zig clean color markers and aqua markers.
Please can I remind you we are a stamping challenge so must see a stamped image, sentiment or quote as the focal element of your artwork. Conventional rubber/acrylic stamps and digital images are acceptable, but pre-coloured digital images and toppers are not. And please note: if we do not comment on your entry it will be because it does not follow the theme, qualify under our rules, or because we are asked to sign in or provide additional data to comment. We do not want to be rude but we do want to be fair to those who do follow the rules.
 Here is the fabulous prize this month.....

I wish I could enter myself!
Do pop over to the challenge blog and take a look at all the fantastic creations by my lovely teamies. There is some wonderful inspiration again this month! Hope you get the chance to join in and I'll look forward to seeing all your lovely creations!  
Before I go I want to share a photo with you. Last Tuesday I got my accreditation to be a Karate Sensei for GKR! I'm still pinching myself ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€
Thanks for looking!

Hi Sally what a wonderful card and such a gorgeous country scene, it drew me in and felt as if I was the rambler, wonderful colours and composition.
Well done on your Karate achievement, and a great photo too.
Just finished a good read and thought I'd recommend it to you, Rory Clements, Corpus. it's a historical/spy/who done it. I've read his series about his chracter John Shakespear, who is part of Wallsingham/Cecil spy team, they are excellent too. The new one takes place as Edward V111 is about to abdicate, Kate x
