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!"
Happy St. Paddy's Day to you. Fabulous idea for green, love it. Jen xo

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
