Tender little Swarowski flowers

All this rain is making sure that I complete my challenges on time, or even ahead of time, would you believe it, when normally I am late with everything. 

The challenge over at the Every Inchie Monday blog was FLOWERS. Well, a little bit of sparkle goes a long way towards cheering me up, so I coloured the background of the inchie with blue, green and brown chalk inks and cut some vintage Swarovski trim apart to make the flowers with -

Very happy with this one, it makes me smile.

On the Tag Tuesday blog, we are now up to the letter T. So few letters left!!! I think I must have been watching a romantic movie before I made this tag last week, because I felt in the mood for a romantic tag featuring the tenderness of a loving young couple -

There you have it, T for Tenderness.

On the French breakfast news this morning we saw pictures of the unbelievable devastation those tornadoes have caused. This is so desperately sad, and my heart goes out to all the people who have lost so much. I have bloggy friends who live in those areas and I crave the news that they are safe. 

Love and hugs to you all,  you are precious friends. xxx
