Tis Tuesday again already .....

This is my offering this week for Kim's Texture Tuesday Party.  I took the photo below last week with the specific purpose of trying to improve the image, which I think worked really well.  I used Kim's free texture WarmSun three times, with the soft light blend and opacity between 55% and 75%.  It certainly warmed it up some! 

My neighbour popped in last Sunday morning (Mothering Sunday) with this lovely bouquet from her garden.
It was soooo pretty - I thought I would share this with you too.  Hope you all had a great Day.

You have a natural talent with these Val! I love both of these images - the first one would be beautiful in a frame on the wall (well, so would the second one, but I like the first one best).
