At the risk of boring you, another version of this prickly plant but I promise it will be the last. This is with a textured layer from the internet.
I was overwhelmed by the response to Lady Wilmott's Ghost II - and many thanks to those who gave awards whom I have PMd separately.
I'm also sorry I haven't been around in the last day or two to look at your images but I've been out a lot and also working on a project or two and just haven't had the time. I hope to have some time tomorrow, and then we are off on our travels for a week.
Thanks for looking and for any comments and/or criticisms.
