What can be better than an orange and blue color combo!! You have to know I love this card! LOL My sister and her hubby have been building a house in the same city as my niece (their daughter) her hubby and of course, our precious Madyson! They are down to the wire and packing like madmen!! The movers are coming on my B-I-L’s 60th birthday! Yep, my sister, hubby and B-I-L all had 60th birthdays this year! All different families. No, I am not near 60! A few years to go yet. 🙂
Anyway, I digress. I thought this might be the perfect birthday card for him as they are racing to get moved and had wanted to be in by his birthday. Notice I did the image out of the nestie technique. I really wanted him to look like he was zooming for the finish line! I found this sketch on Bev Rochester’s blog. Anywho, here’s my card.
Yesterday I talked about our maple tree out in our front yard. So Christina here’s a picture of it.
Usually this tree is full and beautiful in the Fall. The drought this last Summer and then the hail last week was pretty hard on it. A lot of the leaves fell off while they were still green. My mums this year were just out of sight. They are HUGE it took a whole sheet to cover one mum when we were having freeze warnings.
One last photo of the view I have every day outside my studio window!
