Sunday Card & Close ups











It's been sunny and rainy off and on this weekend. Of course the car was in the driveway with the sunroof open when it started to rain at 4 a.m. - now it's sunny outside and the windows are up. I often work backwards like that.

I had a dead battery this morning too when I went to take my daughter to her friend's house. They were leaving for Richland (which is in the Tri-cities in Eastern Washington where it's HOT in the summertime) to visit her best friend for the week. It is soooo quiet in our house when she is gone! (That's both good and bad! - means I hate the kids bickering, but I miss her company). School starts soon, so things will change before I know it.

My project from last week still has no pictures so I won't show it just yet. Instead I have closeups and cards to share.

I am trying to work on my photography and just am not steady or able to take shots the way I want. So have close up shots on one card....

Here they are...

The closeups are of my favorite card made a while ago...couldn't give it away just yet, but I think my MIL may get it - her bday is next week.

The Chicken card is for someone who was battling cancer and is now in remission. I am still working on watercoloring and that card definitely has some creative colors in it! (Purple and pink chicken? Um, yeah, I don't think so)...

I've blabbed enough...

Have a great day, everyone!

hugs,
Elaine
