April Showers

Hello!

Well it has been a long time since I have put a card on but finally have one. This one is called April showers. I have coloured this one with distress inks. I have been practicing but still need a lot more practice. The flowers I made are called Wattle. They are native to Australia.
Here in Australia on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland the rain hasn't stopped falling for days.
There are floods everywhere. Fortunately we live on the top of a high hill. The grass here is usually brown from the heat and dryness. It is nice to see the green grass like my home land of New Zealand.
Hugs
Marion
