Thinking of You Card ~ A Simple Hello {1st Post }

I few years ago shortly before saying my final goodbye to my Dad 
I had gone out for a short walk to catch my breath and have a good cry.
It was a hot sunny January day in the Palm Desert area.
As I walked a small rainstorm came along to join me.
When I looked up there it was... a beautiful rainbow.
I knew in an instant just what that rainbow meant.
I rushed back to my Dad's bedside and told him Momma 
had sent him a rainbow from heaven to show him the way.
Later that night my Dad joined my Momma.
Now whenever I see a colorful rainbow 
I feel like it's them sending a little hello from heaven.


*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.

Birthday Card ~ A Good Day {1st Post}

I played a little more with my water colors today.
 I painted the castle, palm tree, sea star, crab, pail and beachy background.
I embossed the card front after cutting the circle from it.
I tucked the beach scene behind the circle and
 then added the other beach goodies with foam tape.
I finished off my card with a ribbon bow
