A fun friendship card for the Mama Elephant November 2015 on Flickr.

Hi sweet friends ♥

Sigh, our daughter and her hubby left for home this morning. I miss them already. We had a very upbuilding visit with our local elders and a traveling overseer who made a shepherding call which really built us up. It's hard getting older, living in pain, and Bruce needing a new pacemaker. We are loved though!!!

The card details--

The sky is a lightly watercolored. I tried not to warp the cardstock as it is not watercolor paper. The leaves are colored with Memento Markers "dot" style, then fussy cut and popped up. The squirrel and bunneh are stamped with inks (popped up with foam) and the acorn / carrot are colored with Memento markers. The leaves are strewn about the ground, also made with dots from Memento markers.

Made for Jennifer McGuire's "Share Handmade Kindness" month, November.

  6. Oh Rosy, these cute critters are so sweet playing around in the colorful fall leaves. You have done an amazing job on this one. Here in Wisconsin, we have had such wind, that most of our leaves are gone and the wind is still howling! So I am really enjoying your card today. I know it is the bittersweet when the loved ones leave, but thye do love you and that means all the world is good.

  7. This is such a happy card. Love the yellow and then the fabulous multi colored leaves. The tag is perfect for the wonderful sentiment.

  8. oh Rosy. this is so cute, and nice and bright. Hugs.
