Hi everyone as I have no finished card I decided to share this photo of my son's dog Charlie who is the boss of the house here.He is very love able and is a calm dog and gives us as a family lots of  fun and adventure .His God is his food and when  he knows his food is coming he drools.His other love is sleeping especially in the Sun

Ireland's Shades Of Green.

Hi All,I am trying to play around with my camera and also trying to do something to the layout.I need lots of lessons.This card is again outside my comfort zone.I think I am happy with the outcome .On the two last photos I was trying to get a sunburst effect,with the background.Flowers are from my garden.
Product used; spellbinders Dies jewel Flower and Flourishes by Julianna Hudgins ,It is a Die that I use a lot as it gives you so many shapes.
Brads a blog hop prise from Kim Dallow and Creative Expressions.
I put Distress Clear Rock Candy on the flowers and leaves.
Mesh from a Flower arrangement.; I put Gleam Gilding Wax on to  the petals on one of the Flowers,I thought they would be Creamier ,but it is the first time using them,so will try them again,they are not what I expected,they looked totally different when I saw them Demonstrated on C.C.  So that was my days work for yesterday.Hope you all will give me feedback,good or not.

The Poem to go with my project.

The Lake Isle Of Innisfree

I WILL arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made:
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honeybee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.
And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet's wings.
I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,
I hear it in the deep heart's core. 
William Butler Yeats
