This past week here in Houston has had some of the most gorgeous weather! It's now finally cool enough for Rambo to have his 3 walks a day! haha! The only problem is the drought. It is literally killing 10% of the large trees in Houston. I am so sad to see the large, pretty trees turning brown. It has been sooooo long since we have had a significant rain. There are several fires going on right now burning tons of acreage. Most of the fires are not very close to us, but I feel for the people having to leave their homes.
My card for this week is for the Just Magnolia and Hanglar Stanglar Challenge. Bev has created a very nice sketch for us all to use.
I have had a lot going on lately and some deadlines to meet and so I had to find an image that was already colored in order to finish on time, so this was colored months ago and I just searched around for papers to match. I don't usually use browns, but I rather like how this turned out.
Oh here's the sketch! Love it!
I used distressed ink for the coloring and all of the amazing chocolaty flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts! I also used the fun raffia ribbon that is now available on their website.
Sorry for my lack of blogging, I will try my best to come visit you more this coming week!
Take care now and thank you for visiting my blog!
