An August Morning and an Easel Card.....





This morning I want to share an easel card with you.  It is 5 1/2 X 5 1/2 and I have used Heartfelt Creations Raindrops on Roses paper collection.  This is my favorite paper collection and one I reach for often here in my craft room.  The flowers and little butterfly were sitting in a bin on my desk and they matched beautifully so I used them.  I love it when that happens!


We have gently moved into August here in East Tennessee and we begin to see some steamy, foggy mornings in my area.  It has been a very hot and dry season here and we will welcome rain. All around me there are lawns that have lost most of their green grass and so has mine.  Trees are dropping leaves but it is from the stress of heat and no rain. Yesterday I had a 40 minute rain shower and felt so blessed to have received such a gift! Of course more is needed but it had been so long since I had rain I just stood on my porch and watched it come down.  First a few splatters then more and finally a gentle rain!  The smell was amazing and the coolness coming afterward was wonderful!

Now I'm off to visit some of my blog friends as I continue to sip my coffee!

This is a 'drool worthy' card! LOL! Love the colors you used and of course those flowers are beautiful. I can almost smell the sweet scent they give off. Love everything about your beautiful card.

This is so beautiful! I just love how you've glossed the flowers, and the Prills on the butterfly body are a great idea. No surprise that this is one of your favorite paper collections, it being so pretty and all. Your rain sounds absolutely beautiful when it was needed so badly. Honestly, Glenda, with your description I felt like I was right there with you. We don't get much rain here in the summer ever. Ours come in winter if we're lucky. My eucalyptus tree is dropping brown leaves and making a mess all over my garden.

Stunning Glenda, I too love this paper (though I don't have it..sigh) a gorgeous card..love the pretty flowers and butterfly and your use of the "Prills", I just ordered a new color of Prills (to me)..love those little things! It has been dry dry and more dry here in Michigan as well as HOT! We need rain desperately, all my flowers are a dried up mess!!

Glenda, this is a gorgeous card! Love your little window scene and the beautiful flowers. Happy that you got a shower recently. Hopefully more will be coming. I think we have a possibility of rain every day for the next 5 or 6 days. You just never know. Have a wonderful day!
