...the sunshine brought on a stroll and a forage at the water front... is a card I made upon my return...

...this is a multi-layered flower using fabric & paper with a pretty shell as the center...

...this was set upon a multi-layered paper base...crumpled brown paper sprayed gold, two lyers of mulberry paper & a little strip of frayed burlap...

...also found a gorgeous little piece of bleached knotty driftwood...

...a few shimmers here & there...

...hope you caught some warming rays...

...thankyou for stopping by today...
