Clover All Over

Hi, everyone, and welcome to Leisure Lane. I hope you are enjoying a lovely spring day.

Well, if you aren’t allergic, don’t underestimate the beauty and simplicity of clover. It’s all over and makes for a quick, easy, and pretty small bouquet. You can also add some colors with yellow, blue, or other colored wildflowers growing around your yard. I picked these yesterday, before the yard received a mowing.

When my sister and I were little girls, we would pick clover and tie them together to make crowns for our heads – does anyone else remember doing that?

I hope you enjoyed this little post. Delight yourself in the Lord and the day, and…

Until next time, may happy days abound!


A Friendship Garden

Hello Friends,

I’d like to share a card I made for my dear friend, Karen, in San Antonio, Texas.  I haven’t seen her for quite some years now since she moved.  We talk at least once a week, not as often as we used to, and I miss her very much.  I decided to make her a special card.

The yellow ‘daffodils’ are from a painting sketch I did a while back, and I built up from there.  I wanted it to resemble a garden…she loves gardens.

The tiny bit of left over lace reminded me of a pretty fence.  And I added some three dimensional flowers to give it more texture and dimension.  The little blue butterfly’s wings are actually away from the paper in flight and the flight “tail wind” is made with left over slivers of paper I had trimmed away from another piece of paper.

I liked making the wings flutter with my fingers…It’s the child in me.

Another angle to see the flowers better.  I now wish I had added a bit of glitter to it to add a little sparkle.

The inside.  Oops, I might have forgotten to erase the pencil lines…☺…

I hope you enjoyed your visit here at Leisure Lane, and I hope it gave you a chance to relax and breathe in a bit of love and friendship.

Until next time, may happy days abound!
