Grandpa's Flowers

Good morning and welcome to my blog.  Congratulations to everyone that entered in our last fortnights challenge there were some really lovely entries.

I thought I would share with you this week a view from my kitchen window the other morning, the flowering Cherry Tree is out and the Wisteria on the bridge over our pond has just come out I so wish the Wisteria would flower for longer each year.

Onto this fortnights sketch which is a basic and easy design for all of you to make.

Wow, what an amazing view you have from your kitchen window. I should post one from MY window. Mine is so different than your view, pretty but in a different way.

I knew that you would choose to use "Grandpa's Flowers!" You did a great job with it. I love how your embellishments on the side match the image. Lovely papers too. You knocked it out of the ballpark with this one!

That sentiment is so wonderful and true. WOW, your card is gorgeous and so is your view! What a neat little bridge. We have just the opposite with the leaves falling and today was wet and it rained all day so we got an inch of rain, yuck! I should get a king size bed to fit all three cats and everyone in bed, but we all squeeze into a queen-size. As I have said before I just pay the mortgage and the cats allow me to live there.

Beautiful card Kathie and so pretty in the pink. Your sentiment is just perfect too. I was going to use this one too, but used the monster as I wasn't sure whether Linda would be playing or not.
I love the wisteria over your pond, such a lovely view you have there.
