Blown Away

We really are being blown away! The strong winds are causing so much damage with gusts up to 100 km/hr (60 mph)…..large signs are knocked over….trees down….some on top of hydro wires so some people are without power….garbage pails and recycling bins blown over…..shingles off roofs and on and on. So far we have only had some small branches come off our trees.

Tomorrow my one and only granddaughter turns 25….how can that be? It seemed like only a year ago she was seven! She is a wonderful young lady and we are very proud of her. She wants to be a veterinarian so she has a few more years of schooling yet.

Here is the card I made and mailed to her. Unfortunately she lives over a 9 hours drive from us so visits are rare and far in between.


 This is an old Stamping Bella image but it could still be available. It was once again coloured with pencils and blended with gamsol. The image was stamped again on masking paper and then cut out. The mask was placed over the coloured image and then I sponged and ink the sky, grasses and road. Wink of Stella was added to the lace on her skirt and the flowers. Yellow brads were placed in the top corners to attach it to the first solid yellow cardstock; then glued to a burnt red cardstock and then to the yellow print paper. The top left corner seemed blah so a yellow ribbon was wrapped around and taped to the back before the card was glued to the card base. The tag was die cut with a Spellbinder’s die and then glued to the burnt red cardstock and I carefully cut around it leaving a slight border. It was attached with a dimensional glue strip. I hope she likes it. I had fun making it.

That’s all for a mild but very windy Wednesday, 2017-03-08.



Don’t forget you are more than welcome to save any cards to your Pinterest account for future reference. Simply place the curser over the picture until the Pinterest save sign shows up in the top left corner and enter. This will take you to your Pinterest account.

Very pretty card Violet! Perfect for your Granddaughter i think. Our families are strung out all over the place... visits are rare.. from coast to coast..

The wind was bad here too... We had a line of storms come thru two nights ago and i have never heard the wind come like it did... It was the middle of the night ( i hate that) I could hear the howl of the wind coming from far off... so strange... There was some damage in other parts of town and a tree fell over down the road from us.. BIG tree... but we are all okay...

I hope this is not setting us up for a Spring of bad storms... can we please just have the rain... :) Hugs! deb
