A little bit scenic



Morning to you all, thought I had better show my face and do a post, but it's another quickie as still feeling under par, the infection has gone into my throat, ear and neck, balance more dodgy than normal and I'm beginning to wonder what it will take to stop it in it's tracks.

Anyhow, enough gloom, a couple of cards a made a while back using Pan Pastels and a mixture of stamps from Chocolate Baroque, Stampscapes, Art Impression and Lavinia.


Short and sweet I'm afraid, but I really do need to says thank you to everyone for their lovely and supportive comments and also a big welcome to me new followers, it's lovely to have you.

Two beauties, Brenda! I love how you used your bridge to create two gorgeous scenes from two different countries. In my minds eye..... The first scene looks very English countryside and the second one reminds me of Asia xx

Elizabeth said...

Hi Brenda, do be careful and take care of yourself ... my sister has just had a very nasty fall, smashing herself against her wheelchair as she went down, and she's taking a wee while to recover too. Her wheelchair is a write-off so now she's renting until a new one arrives. I keep saying to her, whatever next!

Oh, and your cards are beautiful ... you do scenes so well :)

Wishing you well again. Elizabeth xx

Nannieflash said...

Oh Brenda these are both gorgeous I love the tranquility of them both, mind you I wouldnt want to hang around them at the moment with it being so cold. hugs Shirleyxxxxx

Paula (PEP) said...

I do hope that the infection can be sorted soon so that you begin to feel much better. Your cards are both elegantly matted & I particularly like the sky in the second one. The first is my favourite though - those flowers far left & the sheer similitude to reality of the bird & fence - in fact the scene itself just catches my attention.
Paula (PEP)
