Romantic Floral Wedding Cards

Welcome Back

What could be more romantic than getting married under a beautiful bower of flowers and I have made a couple of cards that would be perfect for such a wedding.

For these cards I have used the Heartfelt Creations Classic Roses along with the new Wildwood Florals from the just released Wildwood Cottage Collection to create a bower of flowers over the Happy Couple (die from Sue Wilson).  I can’t believe that I have never used Brilliance inks before but I have now decided they are just beautiful to make luscious flowers with a hint of sheen for a stunning effect.  All the flowers and the green leaf swirls have been cut from white cardstock and coloured with the Brilliance inks.  I did go over the top of the flowers with Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay for a sparkly effect which is hard to see in these photos.

Spring ray of sunshine

We have had the most amazing weather over the last few days and the daffodils are starting to come out in the garden which is lovely. It is so heartening to see the bright splashes of colour after all the grey and drab days of winter. Soon there will be more flowers and the days will get warmer and longer and then it is the downward ride towards Christmas and summer.
We have had some more earthquakes but I haven’t felt them, but I know a lot of people are getting quite nervous. We certainly are getting an idea of what the people in Christchurch have been through in the last 3 years.
I hope this photo cheers everyone up and helps them get through the week.
Happy snapping.

‘Fairies leaving their home’

My photo for the day. Unfortunately, I tend to have a lot of weeds in my garden, but you know what they make really interesting photos. I was really pleased with the detail in this photo using my intelligent zoom. When I was young I used to think the seeds were fairies – hence the title.  Just a little whimsical tonight I think.
Tomorrow I will post some of my latest scrapbook pages from my son’s album after I have uploaded them to my Memory Manager. I am now up to James at 4 months old so I am making good progress and it is only April. With the weather turning cooler here it is a great time to stay inside and scrapbook both digitally and traditionally.
Have a great day and Happy Crafting.

Another bee on a flower photo. I know this is getting a bit boring but I just can’t help myself when I see a bee flying about my flowers. Plus I had the bonus of some raindrops on the snapdragon.
I hope you are enjoying all my flowers and that they bring some sunshine to your day.
Have a good day

Another photo of the day. I just managed to capture the little rain drop in the centre of this flower.

My photo of the day. I had just come home after getting some photos printed for a camera club competition when I saw this monarch butterfly outside. I rushed inside to get my camera and managed to take a series of photos with this one being the best. I love the majesty and fragility of these butterflies. So I was back at the shop to print this one of for the camera club competition. This is my first entry so I do not know how I will go. Will keep you posted.
Have a great day
