Rain, Rain and More Rain...and a Card


I’m sure some people are thinking its time to build an ark! It has been raining here non-stop for about 20 hours – and it will continue until sometime tomorrow night! That’s three days of solid rain. There are many reports of flooding and road closures. I feel sorry for the farmers as they are usually busy planting their crops now and the fields are just saturated with water.



I braved the rain this afternoon and took my sister to our quilt guild’s quilt show. We had a wonderful time. Of course all my quilting friends are upset that I still cannot talk and they all want me to see another doctor but there is nothing a doctor can do about a virus. It just has to run its course…or in my case, walk slowly!



Once the rain clears up it will be time to get the BBQ going so I made a card about BBQ’ing. This is a very old Stamping Bella stamp so I have no idea if it is still available.

 


The background was made using various pieces of paper from a 6” paper pack. This is a 5 ½” square card. The man’s shirt was paper pieced. I love to do that. All you have to do is stamp the image on patterned paper; cut it out and glued it to the image you have also stamped for the card. The rest of the image was coloured with pencils; blended with gamsol. Then three black dew drops were added and a gold peel-off sentiment.



That’s all for a very wet and rainy Friday, May 5, 2017. Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

Cheers

Violet

With all the rain you sound like we did last week... Some of us got upwards of 10 to 12 inches!! It had been dry for so long though ....I just hope we don't go all summer without more... with rain any more it seems to be either feast or famine.... So glad you had a good time with your sister... Sad to hear you don't have your voice back yet... You seem to lose it every year don't you?? I hope you are feeling better soon... Big Get Well Hugs! deb
