Daffodils and Dragonflies!

Hello to You All, I hope you are all good, but sending out healing thoughts if you're not.
Well, we started out with a foggy morning but now it's just beautiful, though Alistair has just commented that he wouldn't be surprised if there is thunder, it is that sort of heat. I have a full whirrly of washing out so I hope not.

Thank you all for commenting on my last card, and the final photos of Shetland, you are all so kind and encouraging.

Not a long post today you'll be pleased to here,  I have another card made using  another of the wonderful Chocolate Baroque stamps
From the Daffodil Script set this is a lovely image which I've coloured with watercolour paints, and added little dragonflies to the background which is watercolour paint swooshed on the card, quite effective I thought, than matted on to a sage coloured card.
Just a simple  card.

That's all from me  for now, enjoy your day and see you soon,

Hugs Kate x

Same sort of day here Kate but we are promised rain all day tomorrow, that will twice in less than a week but the warmth in-between is most welcome.

A glorious Spring inspired creation.

Hi Kate,
what a brilliant and super design card.
I love that daff stamp, and what you have created with it.

It was supposed to rain here today from 2pm but we have had a very hot day yet again and no sign of rain.
My poor grass is dying of thirst.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Hi Kate, a lovely bright card today, lovely water colouring.
I'm wishing that daffodils were in season just now as it would mean Christmas and the worst of the winter would have passed.
Wishful thinking on my part. I love daffs and spring time, not a big fan of winter.

Hope all is well with you. Hugs Erika.

We have had a terrific thunder and lightening storm here tonight. Never seen such huge rain drops! It is supposed to continue on Friday too. I love those dragon flies on your background.
I did wonder if anyone would spot Norm on my side bar as I never said anything. The Doc only got up for a moment and when he got back to his chair Norm had purloined it!!
Hugs Mrs A.
