Flower Power

It's always fun to take a trip to the nursery this time
of year to see all the beautiful flowers. 

This year I won't be buying flowers.
Just taking photos of flowers. 



Linking up with Tuesday Muse and Texture Tuesday..

I used two different textures on my photo.
Asian influence from Nancy and Oh my from Kim.
I am pretty sure they were both at 100%. 


****


It's all about Washi Tape over at
City Crafters challenge blog. 



So many different styles to play with... fun fun.. 

Kirsty is our host and has asked us to create a tag
and dress it up with a little bit of Washi tape.



You know how much I love making tags.
This is another flat tag that will be used as bookmark.

To get all the details on this challenge hop on over to CCCB!




Another flower to brighten up your day.

I am really happy you stopped by..

Hugs~
