Exotic Flowers cards

Hi friends, I see the weekend is here yet again !
Been busy in my craft room today, here are
two cards I made.
 
 
Over at 'Less is More' the theme this week
is........
 
'Something Exotic' 


Hmm thinking caps on then, I decided to
go with exotic flowers ! I had recently
hand drawn and watercoloured this purply
 blue flower. 
 
 
I quickly made it into a card, then made
 another one using hot colours
this time ;)


I have more half made  too, this time digital
 ones though ! I had exotic flowers on my
brain funnily enough this week. I bought
 this gorgeous white Orchid plant.
 
 
 I had my eye on it for a while and in the end
just HAD to buy it ;) It looks great in my
 hall now too. See pic below cards!
Hope you like my exotic new header,
thought I would go with the same 'exotic'
 theme ;)
 
 
 I am soooo crazy about font's,
(you may have noticed), I am mixing and
adding 'swashes' to them now ;)


ps. We had a great day at the Dinosaur park
with the grandchildren, pic soon!
Also a very big welcome to my latest 
follower June , welcome aboard ;)

  11. Viv, where do I start? Your header is beautiful, I spotted it straight away as I love lilies. As for your cards, how talented are you?! These are just amazing, I can't pick a fave as I love both these colour ways. And your orchid is lovely. I love them but no matter how hard I try I always lose them, obviously not got green fingers!
    Thanks for sharing with us.

  12. You drew these flowers? WOW! they are truly beautiful and painted with your skill.

    Love your new header so Hot Summer.

    Wish I could get my orchid to flower I have had it for years, it has the most brilliant leaves, which are added from time to time, but No flowers. I've even threatened it, by telling it it's going to be thrown out, it still refuses to flower!
