Weekend Post

Hi Everybody!

Happy Valentine's Day to you all. Hope you had a day filled with
L💖VE!

Today I am sharing another tag for my 'spring is in the air challenge' at Tag Tuesday. I used the same masterboard for the background as for the first 2 tags. The garden chair is a stamp from Catherine Moore. I added in some flowers with a brush-pen. The bunny is having fun sitting on the chair and talking to the birds:




And I have another digital page for Elizabeth's hearts challenge at AJJ, using elements from Mischief Circus, Serif and me. I am also linking to TIOT, share the love:




We have had lots of rain these past days, and the Rhine is filling up again, but I hope it won't get as full as it was last week. We have another big storm forecasted for Sunday, although it's not supposed to be as bad as last week - we shall see! But cloudy skies make for very atmospheric photos - here some sunrise pics:





I have bought some daffodils in pots to add to my window bank, and they are growing very rapidly. The clivia was reduced to 2€ at the garden department by IKEA, as it was very dry and sad looking. I have given it some TLC and now it is starting to bloom:




And I bought myself some new cushions in petrol and yellow to brighten up my living room:


I have tried to get in an evening walk as well each day:










And the neighbour's cherry tree is blooming:


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

  6. That may be the cutest dog I've ever seen :) and I love how much depth and texture you get in each piece. Your cloud photos are stunners! When the cherry trees bloom I think we can be certain Spring has Sprung!

  8. How incredibly impressive. Your tag is adorable. That bunny is different and so cleverly added to the tag. I like the way you added beads to the "ribbon" on the tag, too.

    Your digital heart had me smiling. As you know, I think what you call football we call soccer. However, since it's Valentine's Day, this is so adorable, and you are sharing it with us at Art Journal Journey using my theme, I'll overlook our difference of opinion.

    Wonderful shots of the sunrise, but my favorite shot today was your lovely living room. I fell in LOVE with that rug. And your plants are looking healthy, too, I might add.

    1. Thanks E! Yes, American and British English are very different languages. Glad you like the rug, it was printed with my own design.

  9. Your pink-striped bunny and orange dog are both adorable. Very whimsical. And WOW! Your sky photos are breath-taking. The sun is shining here today, and it's a very welcome sight. It's been warm here, but we've had way too much rain, and a lot of our lakes and rivers are at flood level.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  15. Its a wonderful tag and the page you created looks fabulous. It is a real cute football playing dog on the page and of course the heart you added shows a lot of love on the page.
    Super photos from your walks and in your home. The window edge with the plants thriving and flowering look beautiful and your new cushions give a happy burst of colour.

  16. Your sunrise and sunset photos are stunning Valerie, such beautiful colours. Well done on saving the Clivia, I have some in the garden, no flowers yet đŸ€žđŸ€ž. Your lounge room is lovely, and great art work too.

    1. Thanks. Clivia needs to be indoors mostly here, but in summer I put the plants outside on the balcony and they like the fresh air!

  22. OK, before I forget this time, let me thank you for linking up to AJJ and TIOT. I have that same garden chair stamp-it is an oldie but a goodie, isn't it? And your footballer page is great! I know many a dog who would love to chase a soccer ball. Or even better a tennis ball. Nice use of hearts. And wow, cherry blossoms. We won't see those until MAy. Plus it is really cold here. Hope you have some good walks this weekend. And nice to see your bright living room. Hugs-Erika

  23. Noch ein sĂŒĂŸer Puschel! :-)
    Ich frage mich immer, was die mit den Pflanzen bei IKEA machen! Kein Licht und die sind gesund!
    Schöne Fotos und.... was?! Kirschbaum in BlĂŒte? Hier ist noch alles nackig!
    Aber.. Sonnenschein, GlG, Iris

  24. Your living room looks as bright and cheery as the sunrise itself, Valerie. Something is wrong with the climate cycle when cherry trees are blooming in February. It's great to see but very worrying in the long term. Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks David. Our climate is changing rapidly and when people don't act quickly it will be too late! The politicians talk too much and don't do enough.

  30. I love the bunny on the chair in your Spring garden, The dimension is wonderful. I also got a kick out of the dog wearing sneakers for football!
    The clouds in your photos are powerful!

  31. A great tag Valerie, that bunny looks so sweet sitting on the chair. Love the footballing dog, such fun. Very dramatic sky photos and your indoor garden looks great. Your living room looks a lovely welcoming place, love the yellow chair.
