  1. Good morning Debra ... what a beautiful card. I just LOVE the image, the colours and colouring is fantastic.
    Had a little laugh to myself re:- the Lawn Mower. Our neighbour ALWAYS seems to start his Lawn Mower
    when we decide it's nice enough to sit in the garden. Not had much of that this year.
    Have a good day

  3. Sorry for your paceful day bothered by the lawn mower... also here is in this way! And also chainsaws and motorhoes.... Uff!!! Never a moment really full of the peace of Nature!
    Your card instead speaks of the sound of silence and inner music... it's so delicate and feminine! Adorable blue tones, and love the image so beautifully coloured! All the details look so sweet!
    I don't like say to a robot (the programmed form) that I'm not .... it might get mad with me! :D :D LOL
    Hugs, have a wonderful day at one with nature... human allowing :)
