Hello my sweet friends

I am back to show you what I have created this week
for City Crafters challenge blog but I of course
have a couple of photos to show you 
before we get to that. 




We got a some rain this weekend so I was
able to get a photo of some water droplets. I also had
some fun playing with this photo in PS.
Can you tell.



And here's another shot I got no water droplet just a 
photo of my rosemary. You know the bees just love my rosemary.
But there were non to be seen. Maybe because of the rain? 

On both these photos I used the texture "Let Go" by KK..
Linking up to Texture Tuesday and Tuesday Muse


******


This week over at CCCB our hostess is the sweet and talented Ros,
And she has us making a creation that is Inspired by a song.. 




So I made a card that was inspired by the song
"The sweetest thing"  By Juice Newton




Just look at this sweet image.
It certainly is the sweetest thing.. 



This card is going to my nephew and his 
wife who just had baby girl. 




To get all the details on this challenge you know
what to do..  You can also hop on over just to take a peek
at what all the other creative gals over at CCCB came up with. 



I had such a busy weekend I ran out of
time and didn't get to play in this weeks Scavenger Hunt.
But I already have a start on next's weeks prompts. 
It's a St. Patrick's kinda scavenger hunt.
Fun... Fun... Fun...

Till next time,

Hugs~

Love your sweet water droplets and that sweet, sweet card. What are you going to do when you are on the road, surely you can't take all your stamping/scrapping supplies with you. You may have to go digital.

Lovely droplet photo Linda:) The card is sooo sweet and will give so much joy. I was amazed to see that the crochet mat/tablecloth underneath the card is exactly like one I have for our dining room table.

Did you see the snow? I drove through a bit of sleet/hail and snow in old Henderson (by Water Street) that day it was rainy. Wild, right, for March?

Lisa Graham Art said...

Wow Linda...what a capture in the first photo. Beautiful. I have had Rosemary plants several times here in Kansas and they never seem to survive the winter...or perhaps it's the summer that is so hard on them?

I love the card you made for your nephew...they will likely frame that and put it in the baby's room. :)

Justine said...

beautiful! and I especially love the raindrop in that first shot

Silvina Soave said...

Tus fotografías son preciosas! Saludos desde Argentina.

Sandie Edwards said...

The simple things in life are always the best, just look at that rain drop ... amazing. Rain is beautiful :-) We had some recently after a long, long drought... was magical. AND, what a beautiful card Linda, I love the vintage appeal it has. Do hope you have been well, about to do a catch up on your blog, life has been frantic this end...x

Julie said...

This is the sweetest of cards, I love the vintage look, no one does it quite as good as you! Apologies, I called by on Tuesday and thought I'd left a comment,I even entered the challenge this week, don't know how I managed to miss commenting. Have a lovely weekend xxx

Gina @ Kleinworth & Co. said...

Stunning drop!!! I heard you all had some rain- on the day we would have been at the track. Go figure- but I also hear that it's now full blown early summer temps now. Praying it's not too brutal for you this year. With it so hot already- it's going to be a long one I think.

Heather Jensen said...

What a darling card! I love the vintage image and sweet little sentiment. :)

Hugs~

Juliana said...
