Another piece using layers and effects and duplicating-just for a design sense really. I tried to make a collage type effect, and to make something for a card. I think with the right sentiment on the front-it would be okay.

As my wife, who complains that I keep mowing down her flowers, thinking they are weeds, will tell you - what I know about flowers wouldn't fill a thimble....

However - I know what I like, and I like this a lot.
Well done Sandy!:):)

Oh Mike, Bless your heart! My poor husband gets an ear full quite often from me-on the evils of the weed wacker thinga majig, and I get an ear full about how many things I have planted! I have a dream of this fantastically landscaped yard, and that I will have little fairies take care of it for me! Haha, but reality hits, and my husband wins and my flowers some times loose.:rolleyes: Thanks for your sweet comment Dear Friend.:)

I use to refer to these flowers as two-lips lol I like how they seem to appear like silk. Nice job Sandra :)

haha Evelyn! You know I have this one variety planted around my birdbath, that is about to fall apart. Dogs and birdbaths don't go together, hey not much goes with my two! Anyway-they are true red with black center. I took a photo of them and they are absolutely stunning. I will upload it soon. I hope that I can talk Katie into painting them for me. (look out Katie-if you read this!) I just wish that they would lost longer! The name, I wonder from where it came and why? I agree it is strange. Thanks for your viewing and comments dear friend!

Misterpaint, Thanks ever so much, I am again thrilled by your viewing and comment and really appreciate it!
