Good morning, and Happy Saturday to you all!
It's beginning to look and feel a bit like spring around here. The grass is SO deep, but can't mow because it's SO wet all the time! I've noticed lilies and iris' beginning to bloom, and that makes me happy!
Well, speaking of the beautiful Iris, I was playing around EARLY this morning with another set called "Iris" from Doodle Pantry. I love this set, and got it prior to becoming a DT member. For my card, I used the pre-colored Iris, AND the designer paper that comes with the set. I popped everything up, and if you look closely, you'll see that instead of making additional layers, I simply cut the small section of flower, and sort of curled it up to make it look 3-D.
Well, hope you enjoy your Saturday! DH is working today, and tomorrow, DD's running in the Go St. Louis 1/2 marathon. Of course, we will go watch!
Thanks for dropping by, hope to get around to your blogs in a bit!!!
Food for thought: Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear really bright until you hear them speak..... lol... it's a joke!!! All of YOU are bright!!!
I love your work. I just became your newest follower. I hope you will stop by my blog and follow me as well. I'm a newbie to the blogging world.

Thank You for bringing a bit of spring to my day. So lovely and I like what you did with 'shaping' the petals.
Your card is wonderful, love the soft colors, and that you used two images.

Such a beautiful card with awesome dimension. I adore spring...I actually had a tulip bloom in the yard. That REALLY makes me happy. Now, if it just wasn't 90 degrees! HA!
Gorgeous, love the sentiment too!
Yeah spring...my iris are coming on strong but no blooms for a while. Love the dp and the way you made the flowers such a focal point...beautiful job with this one.
Wow, beautiful card, I like the way you've cut the flowers out and popped them!
Irises are a sure sign of Spring and you are so lucky that Spring has arrived where you live. I really like the 3-D look of this card ... nice job!
Beautiful card Patti!! Love this iris set. We haven't had enough moisture quite yet for our tulips to bloom but they're almost there! =) Love all the Spring flowers, just don't care for the allergies they bring along!! LOL. Have a wonderful Sunday *Ü*
Hi Patti, this is so pretty! I love that DP background from Laurie, Very pretty!

these iris are my very fav DP image and the fact that laurie created coordinating paper is just too perfect, isn't it?! Great job!
hugs & blessings!
Wow, this is just so pretty in all it's simplicity!!
This is really beautiful, Patti!
Oh they are wonderfully soft and delicate your Iris.
What a gorgeous card! I have this set too and absolutely love it!
I know what mean about Spring, yesterday when we looked outside it was like our grass turned green overnight! I have daffodils and tulips just about ready to bloom, I love it! Beautiful flowers and like how you curled them. Thanks for sharing.
How pretty! I love how you added the verse to it! Spring is starting here too - we had some rain in the last week, and today the grass is so green and pretty looking! And my tulips are coming up! Yay! :)
A beautiful card, doesn't spring just encourage you to get the flower images out? I love this one and you've coloured it beautifully. hugs Donna x
Hi Patti, Thanks for the wonderful comments you left on my blog. I was able to find your blog from that post, so here I am! LOL I love your cards, they are just beautiful! This iris card is absolutely AMAZING! You can see the veins in each petal and it just looks so real. The scripture is lovely. You did an absoutely wonderful job on this. It's beautiful!! Yuppy, I'm in Nova Scotia. I'm American tho, from the Adirondack Mountains of Upstate New York. Boy do I ever miss my friends and family and the states!!! It was wonderful to hear from you, thanks for the kind comment. Maybe we could chat a bit, as we have our cards incommon for sure! hehe Take care! Ret
Patti! Hi hon, and thanks for coming by to see me! Your card is so cute...love the soft colors and how you popped up the images. Beautiful creation. Spring is starting to show up here in Illinois too but just as I say that the forecaster says rain/snow mixed all weekend and part of next week! Hope your DD did well with her marathon!
Your iris card is absolutely gorgeous, Patti...the colors are sooo soft and pretty and the verse is just beautiful!!!
Love all the cutting and the layering of the flower heads. Looks like they are actually floating on the card. Very cool effect. Great coloring too! Best, Curt
