A Bit of Green

 

violet leaves with green border

This week the Irish celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.  Today I thought I would add my own bit of green with a photo of one of my violet plants.  The green border and little bit of embellishment was from Betty Jo Martin.  Betty Jo was a scrapper but I do not know if she blogs anymore.   The texture I used on the leaves is a Kim Klassen Café texture called teastained linen. 

I will be joining Kim Klassen Café for Texture Tuesday and Lisa Gordon for The Creative Exchange.   You can feel spring in the air here this week.    You only need a sweater today.  Valerie

Whenever I think of St. Patrick's Day, I remember the old commercial for Playtex bras and think "I dreamt I was Irish in my Erin go Braugh!"
