April Showers bring May Flowers!

"And when it's raining, have no regrets, it isn't raining rain you know,
it's raining violets.... 
And when you see clouds high on a hill, there'll always be crowds of daffodils, 
so keep on looking for the bluebird and listening for his song,
whenever April showers come along...."

Daffodils, St. Mary's church in York, Northern England
I love, love Spring and I think it's mainly because of the flowers.  I love all kinds of flowers, but the flowers that bloom in Spring are just amazing.  Tulips are my favorite, but I can't resist Daffodils, Snowdrops, Lilies of the Valley, etc either.  Here's a scrapbook page I created of my mum using a photo of daffodils as backdrop for a title, which I added in Photoshop.

I love photography and have tons of flower photos.........  here are just a few.

I like to print the photos on ink jet transparency then use them to embellish cards, like this:

The card is just a piece of folded cardstock with a strip of embossed pearl paper across the bottom.  I attached the photo (matted with white cardstock) to the front of the card with brads.  I make sets of these as gifts for friends.  Can you identify the other 5 flowers?  Leave a comment here and I'll pick someone on Friday the 13th to receive a sheet of the photos on a transparency sheet together with a set of cards.

Don't forget to hop forward using the Designer Crafts Connection logo in my sidebar.  You'll find more amazing projects and more giveaways!  Enjoy and y'all come back now.................

Yours truly,
Julie :)
