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!
