We washed our vehicles last night because it is so hot during the day that you can't get outside to do anything. Then this morning I was really smelling the fires that we have going on here in California. I am sitting out on the patio and noticed that ashes are flying around. We are quite a few miles away but we do have some breezes blowing and that probably is what is bringing the ashes. The fires just seem to be getting bigger and bigger and I read that it they are threatening more homes and 1,000s are being evacuted. I hope the weather starts cooling soon and the firemen can get an upper hand on them.
Now onto the card. This is for my youngest daughter. She is a girly girl. In fact when she was younger I always called her a tomboy. She was right out there ready to do all of things that boys would do. In fact I told her that if I didn't have my son after her she would have been like having a boy. I embossed the background with a cuttlebug folder because it looked like sticks to me. Maybe it will remind her of their hunting shack with the window that shows the flowers in a vase on the inside of the card. Yes, she is a hunter, she has gotten a few deer. I am sure she will be out there again this year. She didn't last year because she was pregnant. She does have a couple of mounts of the antlers in her home that are from the ones she has gotten.
The ribbon is PTI's saddle ribbon that I drew up by pulling on the white like you would for a ruffle. I think it gives it a different look and texture. I saw it on Lisa Johnson's blog and thought I would give it a try.
They are colored with copic markers. Her favorite color is green (I think any shade). The vase seems to match the colors in her home.
Happy Birthday Carrie! I know it isn't until next Sunday but I am finally a little ahead and since it has to go in the mail, I don't want it to be late. Hope you have a good one and hope to be seeing and the family very soon!!
Thank you for stopping by today!!
Have a good one,
