Flowers for a Friend

It is a beautiful Saturday morning here in the mountains and no sign of that stinky bear!!!  I am a little late in posting my August card for the swap group I belong to but I think they will forgive me this time. 


 My sweet friend Lau who is very talented and so very French, sent me some pretty flowers and I decided to use some of them inside of my card.  Thanks Lau!!!


A short little post - life marches on and I have oodles to do.  So excited about learning some new techniques that promises to be fun and will share as I go along.  For right now I have to make a granddaughter a birthday card - time's a wastin'!

Thanks for visiting and I will probably see you on your blog!!!! Sandy

Pretty, pretty, pretty! Love the colours you've used and that's a great image. The card is so soft and delicate looking. Cute idea to put the bar of flowers on the side and I always like seeing cards finished on the inside and those flowers look great.

Get a crackin on that b-day card! Glad the bear hasn't been around in a bit, but I'm sure he'll come back before the weather turns. Love all of the purples in this design and the boatload of flowers is wonderful.
