All is Blue


Brrrrr. It’s below freezing here and with the cold north wind blowing it’s even colder. We have a weeping mulberry tree in our front yard and it dropped about 90% of its leaves last night. They are huge leaves so it was raking leaves in the cold this afternoon. We take them to the city composting station instead of putting them in the landfill….every little bit helps the environment. The areas about 30 minute drive here got snow last night but it missed the city completely….for now.

Tomorrow is November 11th and it is Remembrance Day here in Canada where we gather to remember all those that served Canada and especially those that gave their life for our freedom. We always go to the cenotaph.  I only miss going when I’m too sick. My uncle, Frank Willett, died in action in Italy just before the end of WWII so I go in his memory.

Today’s card qualifies for these three challenges.

This is a Power Poppy stamp and I just love it. I especially love colouring it all in blue….with coloured pencils; blended with gamsol. The flowers are very glittery but I love the sparkle. The circle is from a Spellbinder’s die. The background was a piece of white cardstock that I splattered blue ink on. The other paper is all from the stash.

That’s all for a bitter cold Friday, November 10, 2017.

Cheers

Violet
