Spring Flowers

 Spring Flowers
Sweetpeas

Hi everyone, just a quick posting today things to do and places to be so I thought I would post this birthday card I made for my Sister In Law for her 50th Birthday.  Isabelle is French and very elegant so I made a card that was fitting for Isabelle.  Sweet Peas are one of my very favourite flowers, as a child growing up my Dad would grow them every year on this same fence line for my mother, all different assorted colours and as you walked through that gateway there was this heavenly perfume and this wonderful colour display was just amazing.  We lived on a farm and this fence line was down one side of our home about 100 metres of Sweet Peas wow what a smell to me that's the smell of Spring Flowers which I'll never forget and our visitors always went home with a bunch of Sweet Peas and there was always a bunch for my teachers.

Oh Kathie, this is elegant and I am sure she loved this so much. I too am a big fan of sweet peas and this is such a beautiful image. Wonderful card!!
We are having a early spring here in my state, things are greening and trees are getting their first buds. I love autumn but looking forward to our spring. Do you have lots of Fall color where you are? Hope you are doing well.
