Fishing on the lake



Morning Peeps, it's another quickie I'm afraid, not that I am rushing to the office, more the need to keep away from the computer as I am having one of those silly dizzy phases where the whole world is on the move and laying flat seems the only answer.............C'est la vie avec MS.

All I managed yesterday was to finish me new blog header, I thought I would go with a summery scene for a while now that everything is so lush and green and the poppies will be out soon just as they were when this one was taken last year.

The above card is just a little scene I created for a class using Pan Pastels, Stampscape stamps and I think the sentiment is from a Sheena Douglass set.

Have a good Thursday everyone, I shall do my best to get round when my visual world keeps still long enough.

The blog header looks super & I love your atmospheric photography with those leaves for the card - the orange matting is a delight.
Take care of yourself - my invalid is slowly recovering though I'm still tying his shoelaces.
Much love & hope that you very quickly have a stable view of things again.

Hi, Brenda! Thank you for the enjoyable evening I just experienced, catching up on your blog, and seeing all the new things you have been up to. Always a pleasure seeing your techniques and the many ways you incorporate flowers into your cards. I am enjoying the new techniques in your cards - with gorgeously colorful backgrounds and pretty flowers that can be found only in Brenda's Art Garden. Your scenic fishing card is really pretty with the soft colors of dawn, and the cozy backdrop of quiet nature. Just lovely! hugs, de
