Tag Tuesday - new challenge

Hi Everybody!

Today we are starting a new challenge at
-Spring Flowers-

Our challenge got off to a great start last week,
it was fun to see lots of people joining
in, so hope this week goes well, too.
My fave spring flowers are the pink and white blossoms on the
trees, and I eagerly wait till I see the first blooms - then I know
it is really spring. I used peeled, panted and embossed
cardboard for the background. The image is da Vinci's 'Leda',
stamped with Adirondack espresso, as I love the contrast 
between brown and soft pinks:

I am also linking to Allsorts Challenge, anything goes

These photos were taken in February and March last year:

Have a great day you all, 
take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!


  1. Magnificent tag love the gorgeous colours. When the blossoms are in bloom it sure is a lovely sign of spring and you will have it soon and I will be saying I'm cold...not freezing...xx{aNNie}

  2. Pink is everywhere in this post. Your tag is amazing, as are the flowers. I actually think I own that same stamp, which surprises me, since I have so few. You certainly know how to use it better than I.

    Your lovely photos from last year are all very pink. The scenes are incredible and beautiful, and I will learn to like pink one of these days, I'm sure! Have a super Tuesday, dear friend.

  3. Your tag is amazing, as are the photos! Great for you that the Tag Tuesday challenge now is so popular! Well done to open it for all!

  4. Wonderful tag, very fitting for blossom time, and I hope we are soon that far here instead of freezing our pants off in the fog! Hugs, Sarah

  5. The tag is stunning Valerie and so very artistic. Amazing photographs of the early blooms that we all look forward to

    Love Chrissie xx

  6. A gorgeous tag Valerie and your photos remind us that Spring is just around the corner - can't wait.

  7. A gorgeous tag Valerie, love the pretty springtime colours and flowers you added to the super stamped image { I think I have a similar one as well.]
    The photos are lovely, it won't be long till the trees are in blossom here, everything seems so early this year.
    Happy T Day

  9. I like the Sepia amongst the flowers ... nice combination.

    Nice to be reminded of the cherry blossom, although I really love that tulip-magnolia

  10. Ohhh was für prachtvolle Magnolien Bäume,ich liebe diese bäume,bei uns im park stehen auch ganz viele und duften so schön.
    dein tag mit den ganzen schönen farben und texuren ist ganz fantastisch mit den rosa stoffblüen traumhaft und romantisch.

  11. gorgeous tag Valerie! And I cannot wait to see the blossoming trees again...

  12. How lovely. So delicate and soft.
    And wow, look at all those lovely blossoms. Have you ever watched the movie IQ? That's what came to mind when I saw them.
    YOU have a lovely, colorful day.

    1. No, I haven't, I'll have to find out about it.

  13. Your tags and tree photos are just a celebration of pink! I really love that color -- it just lifts the spirit. And the tulle on the tag is perfection!

  14. Beautiful spring tag and great idea to show the last year's spring flowers to get us into the spirit!

  15. It will be a couple of months before we see the blossoms - gorgeous shots! Love your tag!

  18. I just love the colour pink!
    Loved your tags
    Loved the photo's too, that blossom is gorgeous

  19. Wunderschönes Frühlings-Tag und Da Vinci's Dame paßt perfekt dazu. Die Fotos von der Frühlingsblüte letztes jahr sind so schön, auch meinen Liebllingsbaum die japanische Kirsche hast du so schön getroffen.Aber auch die etwas kälteempfindliche Magnolie sieht super aus. So eine kann ich in Nachbars Garten immer bewundern.
    Liebe Grüße

  20. What a wonderful tag Valerie, and great challenge to join!
    Lovely photos!
    Hugs, Mar

  21. Such a lovely tag and all of those trees in bloom are so beautiful and make me long for SPRING even more ♥♥♥ Happy T DAY!!!!

  22. I somehow missed this.:( This tag is very pretty and I love the blooms from last year. I'm counting the days until we have blooms again. Its suppose to be spring like and warm today in my world which means we'll get a lot more melt!!!! i am excited about that. Hugs-Erika

  23. Gorgeous tag and wow the blooms are beautiful are you seeing the same this year? We are lucky that we are having a mild 'spring-like' week but it will be some time (late April) before we see any spring flowers. Take care xx

  24. Really gorgeous tag Valerie, lovely colours, details and image.
    Hope the blossom will look just as lovely this year for you - we have storm Doris today, really strong winds and looking like heading in your direction later I think :(
