Painted flower burst

Morning all - thank you for coming by to see me today. 

Bit of a miserable day here again - cold and wet but I have to say the 
runner beans are growing. Can not keep up with them so a load is going 
in the freezer today - for chutney later. 

Marrow and ginger jam being made today.  All go - hahaha

Now here is something different 

Just for you -  painted flower. 

I have used a snippet of watercolour paper and just used my 
new Derwent pencils and blocks to make this. 

Great item -- make your mark on the paper and set the paint with water. 
I gather you can use them on fabric ???

I mounted the watercolour paper onto a snippet of green card from my stash 
and used those peel off for the sentiment. 

Mounted onto a white hand made card blank. 

I hope you like it and would like to enter it for the following


Hope you have a good day and look forward to hearing from you
Sorry if I do not reply in person to everyone but you are in my thoughts. 

I really appreciate your comments. 

Mum today is having the Stroke Nurse over to see her and Mum is still talking about 
having a "bath". So thank you Cara for your advice which I passed on to Mum yesterday
(hope she will remember). I also suggested that she tried having a bath at West View ( an integrated nursing home) to see if she can get in and out of the bath. Or try fully clothed in her spare 
bath with the aid of the carers. I am sure she will not be able to get up from a lying position 
once she is down, let alone get back onto one of those "belt" thingys which she is still 
talking about. 

Well we will see...... !!!!

Best go now and get on with that jam.
