Downpours, Hail, Lightening and Thunder, Sunbreak, Snow

We had all those weather conditions today and I experienced them all.  It was kind of crazy that I was outside so many times today and each time I was in one of those weather conditions.  I stopped drying my hair sometime around 4:00. It was pointless. Getting anxious for Spring.  I know Irises are not the first flowers of Spring but I love them and decided to work on a card with this beautiful colored digital by Doodle Pantry. 
 Do you find it is hard to photograph purples and lilacs?  I do.  They blend nicely IRL but when photographed, the hues don't even look like they belong to each other.  Guess you will have to take my word for it ! heehee.
If you like what you see, you might want to go to the Doodle Pantry and see more beautiful digitals by Laurie Wilson.  Then go to the  Doodle Pantry Challenge and enter.  Each person who enters a card, receives a free digital set just for entering. 
Lots of challenges:

  19. A lovely card & very pretty colours. I know what you mean about the difficulty on photographing lilacs, they always seem to turn out looking a bit bluish. Thanx for joining us at Crafty Cardmakers this week.
