A Quick Note And Some Felicity


We are in the 5th week now with half of our team away and I must say I'm ready for a break! I had to cut back my hours online here (my apologies for not visiting!) and I guess it won't get any better for the next two weeks. But I plan to take a day or two off when everyone is back again.

I thought I was in for a little treat and so last Friday I decided to buy some flowers on my way home. I was lucky to grab the last bunch of tulips available at the supermarket - even at a discount as they were a bit damaged - and then indulged in having a go at them with my camera on Saturday  and happily playing around a bit with textures, too.

I will link this up at Lisa's Creative Exchange (one day later than planned, but I wouldn't want to miss it!) and then also at Kim's Texture Tuesday, as I just found out that I fulfill today's rules of using at least one layer of her "Felicity" texture.

Have a wonderful week everyone and sorry again for not visiting so much these days!

Rosie, this is just beautiful, but more than that I am sooooo glad you decided to give yourself a little treat in the midst of what sounds like a very busy time.

Thank you so much for sharing with us this week at The Creative Exchange.

Have a wonderful evening!

Beautiful as always, Rosie. I'm always happy to see you in my comments, whenever you can come by. :)

Oh yay!! You got your tulips. I like this composition.
Please don't worry about visits. A visit is always a lovely surprise. I too try to visit around but have learned not to get on myself when I have to skip some days. There are so many wonderful blogs and kind people to visit-we just have to do the best we can.
Hope your work load lightens soon.

Tulips always cheer me up. I love their bold colours and strong shapes. You've captured the colours brilliantly and the composition is wonderful.
