Twosome

Hi everybody!

Just a short post today, as I need to get ready for yet another appt at the doc's.
But the weather is still lovely, so I will be able to enjoy my walk there and back.

At Moo Mania and More the theme is 'Twosome'. I have used one of the photos I made last week to make a card. I printed the photo of the twosome onto matte photo paper and matted it with scraps of black and blue mirri-card, and some hand-painted paper in greens and blues. Those geese are always in double pack, and really seem to practise synchronised movement!




 And a few more impressions from my walk yesterday;


This rock used to be a fountain, I am hoping they will get it working again:

  And I would love to know what this is is! An old ice-cellar perhaps? Or the entry to an underground shelter left over from the war? Or? What are your ideas?



 The lovley lane from the park to the Rhine:


That's all for today, take care of yourselves, have fun and thanks a lot for coming by.

  4. What a fab pic of the geese, they remind me of the two geese from The Aristocats, all they need is a couple of bonnets! Good luck for the docs. Take care xx

  11. Great idea to turn your lovely photo's into cards Valerie, these geese really do look as if they are posing just for the camera, a great shot. Your walk looks lovely.

  12. Love your make and your colors as always are fabulous!!!!!
    Now just what is that beautiful brick work for ? I prefer to think of it as an entrance to a secret garden and not anything to do with WWII. Have you gone through the little entrance? Treasures on the other side I bet.
    My best wishes for you at the doctor today - do let us know Valerie. You have quite a fan club and a lot of friends!!

  17. Die Karte ist wunderschön- das Foto ist toll und wie harmonisch du die Dar Entwicklung wieder aufgegriffen hast- die ist es wert an einer Wand zu hängen damit man sich immer daran erfreuen kann!!!
    Deine Fotos sind wieder so toll- ich beneide dich etwas um eure herrliche Gegend- bei uns ist eher langweiliges plattes Land und rundum bestellte Felder. Da müssen wir schon Richtung Harz, Heide oder Don fahren um es so schön zu haben :-)

  18. UPS- die Auto Korrektur hat wieder dazwischen gefunkt!
    Es sollte heißen:
    Wie harmonisch du die Farben wieder aufgegriffen hast

    Liebe Grüße, Dagmar

  21. I feel like I'm walking in a magical kingdom when I view your beautiful photos plus I learn so much. You not only treat us with your art projects but a bit of history of your area. I enjoy it each morning. Best of luck at the doctor's office.
