Helebore

Hello,

Oh its been a really lovely week here in the UK, Spring is very much on her way!  Its going to be even better from Sunday when the clocks go forward, at least this year it isn't going forward on Mother's Day!



Here is my card for this weeks challenge over at Delicious Doodles Challenge the theme is 'floral'.  Ive had this image a little while but hadn't used it prior to this as (and Annie please forgive me!) I didn't know what colours they were!  I did a quick Google and found lots of beautiful images.  The one that caught my eye the most was a water-coloured image.  So I hoiked out my paints (brand new and untouched by human hand) and had a go at watercolouring.  
Have to say it was so easy because Teri has done all of the shading so I just had to add a few light washes.  I think Im going to keep the paints out this weekend and have another play as it was quite addictive!
Hope you like the card and if you'd like to join in too, make a floral card and come and play!

How pretty. I've just blogged my magnolia that's out full bloom and smelling wonderful. Doesn't this sunshine make us all feel better? :-)

That's a fab Hellebore. I have some pretty ones in my garden. I might go out and snap them - the sun is shining beautifully - so much so I think it triggered a migraine this morning!! Feel better now though.
