Blooms and Steampunkerie

A touch of Spring is in the air around here - I just hope it lasts.  The forecast next week is for torrential down-pours.  This weekend, however, is gloriously beautiful!  And so I have spent time today putting final touches on ATC creations inspired by two blogs I follow -  Take A Word and 3 Muses.

The challenge is to get it done within the week they are posted, but par usual, my time clock does not tick with that tock, so I will probably always be late!

However, I managed to be on-time with the current themes and loaded my Flickr account with some of the others I have made.  Dear ladies and gentlemen who follow those blogs, please forgive me in my tardiness, but please take a look :)!
