It is such a wonderful day filled with a gentle rain that is needed so very much! We live at the top of the Grape Vine just off of Interstate 5 and if you head north and drive down the mountains about 10 miles, you will be at the beginning of the Central Valley which is where a large amount of the food is grown for the U.S.A. The immediate area near our home is largely cotton, carrots, table grapes, almonds, pistachios, onions, and garlic, so as you can imagine, rain is critical in this area.

Here is a card I made using the view from the window at my crafting area as an inspiration. It has gray accents because it is overcast and yet all the flowers are still very much in bloom, especially my petunias in the front planter which were especially spectacular this year!

I used a digi, but from an unknown origin (It's one of my weaknesses - I find a digi I really like and get so excited to create with it, that I don't properly note where it came from). The papers are DCWV Near East and Gina K's Moonlit Fog. I used Spellbinders dies, Copic markers (of course), and ribbon and half pearls from my stash.

I like it as it is a simple, clean design just perfect for use by Operation Write Home for our deployed soldiers. I hope you are having a joy-filled day! Blessings to you all,


  1. Yes, clean and simple tent to make the best looking card. Love the flowers and your coloring is fabulous.

  2. I'd love to see the view from your window - it sounds spectacular! Your card is so pretty, and I really like the diecut sentiment panel. I wish digi creators would attach their name to their files - it would be so much easier to link back to them wouldn't it? I d/l mine to a folder and it's a free-for-all when it comes to figuring out who designed what! LOL

  3. Beautiful card Louise, it sounds like you live in a wonderful place! I haven't received your photos so I'm glad you asked me. My e mail on my blog I haven't been able to get into because of computer failure and I need to change it. Try gonestampin(at)gmail(dot)com, I'll be on the lookout for your photos. Thanks!


I love comments. Thanks for stopping by.
