Getting Blown Away.....



Well we’ve had a couple of lovely April days here in Southern Ontario. Oh wait, it’s November isn’t it! Last week we were hit with frigid arctic air and snow; then came the mild temperatures and rain; goodbye snow. It rained off and on all day yesterday and all night with viscous winds gusting up to almost 100km/hr (60 mph) at times. Trouble was this was recycling day on our street and several of our neighbour’s boxes went flying around; some found, some not. Ours tipped over but Joe happened to see it and ran out and picked everything up before it could blow away. Today it was close to 15C (59C) but tonight it will drop down to just above freezing. I think this is why there is so much sickness going around! Crazy weather.

Today’s card is a sweet Magnolia image.
 

It was coloured once again with my Prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol….except for the blue around the image which is chalk. All the paper is from the stash and squares were die cut with the Spellbinder’s die set. The flowers are a porcelain type and quite heavy so this card will have to be hand delivered. I have no idea where they came from because they were part of a miscellaneous package of various embellishments from the thrift store. I think this would be good for either a thinking of you, thank you or birthday card.

That’s all for a windy wet Monday, November-24-14

Cheers
Violet
