Mouse With Big Balloon

Hello and welcome to my blog.  I promised one of my followers that I would post a photo of my Wisteria once it was in flower over our bridge on our pond.  I love this look from my kitchen window, the water lilies aren't flowering yet.   Unfortunately, the Wisteria is only in flower for such a short time and then we have beautiful greenery all summer.  

Here's another view of my card using this month's sponsor which is Bugaboo Stamps.  The image I used was Mouse With  Big Balloon.


Sketch #171

Good morning and welcome to my blog.  I'm sitting here this morning thanking mother nature that spring is here.
Last weekend I looked out of my kitchen window at my flowering Cherry Tree thinking it will be in flower soon.
