Watercolor Snow Bells

(Please scroll down for my Dorcas Blog hop post or click here.)

     Tammy has released some beautiful flower images this week at A Day For Daisies.  The image I've used is snow bells and it's called "Bell Window".  I broke out my distress inks for this one.  The sentiment is from a challenge I just discovered called Word Art Wednesday.  I thought the flowers would make a beautiful religious card.
     Don't forget our "Have a Heart" challenge is still running over at the ADFD blog.  Tammy has a beautiful freebie image there for you to use if you don't have any ADFD images.  It might look familiar if you've been a follower for a while.  I used it on this card.  It's just gorgeous!  You can still join in the fun through next Thursday.  We recently had a revamp of the ADFD DT so make sure you check out our new designers, Broni Holcombe and Alice Wertz.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Purple Frog--flowers
Word Art Wednesday--use word art
The Crafty Pad--springs colors

     Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Love the snowdrops, Tracy. I actually saw some peeking through the snow today, but sadly, not the ones in my garden. Great card.

Tracy...you know I can never catch up on comments of all your posts that I am just now seeing. I know, I'm a bad, bad friend!! I checked in at the Kraft Journal and saw the gift/treasure box you made and knew I had to come tell you how lovely it was! Too pretty!! And all your other creations...they're just too perfect...I don't even know how to describe them anymore. But I do want to say that I believe that it's your character and personality that shines through in the adorable images you choose, the way you color them so artfully, and the sweet details you always choose to frame them in. I believe I see you in each and every one!! Love ya, friend!! You are one in a million!!
