Forget-Me-Not's!

Afternoon blogging buddies.

Hope you have all had a good Sunday, ours was as normal, cooking the roast, son and grandson visit, and then 'chill', not bad eh!

We did need to chill on Sunday though as we had spent Saturday at our eldest son's home which is about an hour and a half away, two motorways, most of it on the dreaded M6, I call it the merry-go-round, seem to spend half my life on the flippin' thing, I'm sure if I pointed my car in the right direction it would find it's own way there, but no matter where we go, we seem to end up on it one way or another!

We had a lovely day, it's always good to see them all and lovely to spend the day with the grandchildren, we ended up taking them to the park as it turned out quite nice in the afternoon after a good downpour in the morning, talking of downpours, when we got back in the evening we had the most dreadful thunderstorm, not seen anything like it for a long time, it seemed to go on for ages, I don't mind the thunder too much it's the lightening I don't like, you never know what it's going to do, but it cleared the air and the garden was nice and fresh by the morning.

Well enough of my chatter, onto crafting....

I just love these sweet 'Forget-Me-Not's', I'm not a 'blue' person really but these, along with the blue papers, I thought were so pretty.

As usual, card recipe below, hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Another beauty Jacee, you have a unique ability to coordinate and layer elements as thought that was exactly how they were intended. And I always rather like blue and yellow together, a perfect palette.

Sounds like a fun and happy weekend Jacee..my G/kids are getting a bit old to go to the park which is a shame, but they still like taking me fishing at the wharf..only cause I'm scared of the fish..lol.and they make me take it off the hook.
A gorgeous card and I love the colours with the forget me knots and have a garden full of them this Spring..and the beautiful glossy butterflies..very,very pretty..

Hi Jacee,
I'm not a person who like blue either, but just lately I have really warmed to the different shades you can get to craft with.
The colour definitely doesn't suit me in clothing either.
Well I digress as usual.
What a very beautiful card.
I love everything about this gem of a card.
Wonderful designing,image, and beautiful papers.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Wow I love this and that blue is awesome. Hugs, joann

MaryH said...

I DO like blue, and it's always so fresh with white & yellow. Love the image, love the colors, and love the triple rectangle mats behind this lovely image. The tiny yellow butterflies & ribbon add nice dimension, and the rainbow effect of that first mat is a beautiful accent. How wonderful that you always make the inside so nicely decorated too, and even a matching envy. Glad you had a good visit with your family, and a safe return home. Always scary on the super highways. And glad there was no damage from the thunderstorm. They can be so frightening. Hugs & TFS.

Sue B said...

Big hugs, Sue B xx
