Digital delight

Good morning to you ...

Yesterday we had a lovely day weather wise ... I decided to get some work done in the garden ... With my foot on the mend I thought I would try and get back to the things I have sadly had to neglect ... Boy do I ache ... I ache in places I never knew existed! But the garden is looking so much better. 
It was a lovely balmy evening and we ate dinner outside ... I put candles in glass jars and it was really nice...
I tried to photo a couple of visitors ...


A cute little butterfly on the marguerites 
Further down the garden I have an array of these large yellow flowers ... Rudbeckia


And I watched as a bee visited each and every flower ... 


Not easy getting these shots ... each time I got him in view ... he flew to the next flower ... it became a game of anticipating which flower he would go to next ...



I love these yellow and green colours and made a CAS card inspired by these colours using digitals 


I used the lovely butterfly from The Graphics Fairy again ( Check out the challenge at CCCB) and also one of their bird images ...


The script is a digital file from Design House Digital ... by Agnes Biro

And Finally ... Thank You to the ladies at Just Us Girls for awarding me Chic Of The Week for This card ... I am delighted!!

Ok ... I am expecting a visitor ... little Sophia, a 3 year old bundle of fun with her Daddy ... so got to run ...

Enjoy your weekend and thanks so much for stopping by ...

Don't you just love gardening? It's nice to see the results afterwards. Your digital card is absolute perfection, could easily be taken up in the Hallmark collection as far as I'm concerned! Enjoy little Sophia, always fun to have such a sweetie around ;-)

It's so nice to be able to sit outside to have lunch/dinner/whatever, isn't it?? And to have all these cute little visitors ;-) Your card is a gem as usual - and I have a feeling you'll include butterflies in many more!

I love this. I've never seen the bird image but it goes beautifully. Also really interested to see how you've used the digital script. I think this is my favourite.

Ah...como é revigorante sentar-se no jardim e arrumá-lo, e simplesmente olhá-lo...As alegrias da vida!! E que voce transpôs muito bem para seu cartão!

So glad to hear you have been enjoying the outdoors. It is way to hot here.. We took a camping trip once again this weekend to escape the heat. The sad part is we get no cell service at all. So that means no internet. But at least its nice and cool. Your card is so pretty. I just love seeing all the butterflies you have been using lately..

Hugs~
