There are hundreds of different wattles and they flower at different times of the year.  But for me Wattle is synonymous to spring.  This is because as a child our street trees were wattles and prunus (I think) and in spring the street would be all yellow and pink.  Very pretty.

Supplies: White card, Computer generated sentiment, Spellbinders die, Distress inkpad and Kaiser rhinestones.

Candles All in a Row

Good morning, good morning,

It's a lovely day today. So whatever you've got to do. You've got a lovely day to do it in, that's true.  The sun is shining, the birds are singing and the bees are buzzing.  It was lovely sitting out in the garden for a leisurely breakfast and then a stroll by the river with my little dog.  What better way to finish the morning than with a little craft session.  Yes it certainly is a lovely day.

Here is my card for today.

Supplies:  White card, Penny Black image and sentiment, Lyra pencils, Kindy Glitz and last but not least ruler and pencil for positioning
