Journal 52 week 9

Spring is on its way according to all my Facebook friends, something I find a little hard to believe when I am surrounded by chest-deep snow! 

I took a drive down the valley last week to visit Bill, who is still racking up the bills in the convalescence centre down in the "BIG CITY" of Digne les Bains...not the most exciting of drives given that I have some seriously huge potholes to avoid has to be done....A WIFE'S DUTY & all that! The drive does give me small glimpses of spring however and I have taken my colour scheme inspiration from one of the plants that I see on my journey.

Shades of a lime green are my helllebore!

I had stamped some assorted sunflower/daisy stamps from chocolate baroque onto white card before I came away with the intention of making some ATCs, I'd even cut them to size last week....
Today they found a new purpose :-) I had a sheet of paper (?) that was meant for a card in just the right colour way so it has become the background (edged with a spectrum noire pen) the ATC, strips that were left over and some partial images from the edge of the sheet have been coloured with 3 different shades of green & edged with brown.

My limited supplies have done better than usual this week...I have also written around the page inspired by helllebore....

Thanks for looking & I'll be back again soon with inchies & twinchies to share :-)
