After the Storm….a Great Time for Pictures and a Card!

I complain about the mud, yes, I hate it, but a good rain brings beauty too. In between downpours yesterday I had to step out and get some pics! I didn’t get too far as it started to spit again while I was madly snapping, but I did manage to get a few of this lily and the hostas.

I saw this quote on Facebook

I also did this card with a new image from Sassy Cheryl’s, Riding the Rapids. How fun, now I have a boy and a girl kayaker for those special people in my life!

Noah and his kayak are colored with Copics. I used a negative piece leftover from Memory Box Grassland Border and Puffy Clouds that turned into rocks!

I air brushed the sky then took white acrylic paint thinned with a little water, and using my finger made some clouds.

The sentiment is from Iris by ODBD.

Posts are scarce these days…it’s my busy time of year! 4H is in full swing with State Fair next week and County Fair not long after! Whew! Next will be the garden exploding with goodness!

Take time to enjoy the moments after a good rain…

Thanks for stopping by!

Lovely floral pictures . Thanks for sharing those. Everything seems to smell nice and fresh after a good rain. Don't want your shoes to get muddy; put a plastic bag (like a Wal-Mart bag) over each shoe/foot and tie the handles around your ankle. When you come in,remove the bags and your shoes are still clean. :}

Cute card by the way
