Some Color On A Cold And Rainy Day


Spring in WI.

That means warmer weather and sunshine - some days. Cold, wet and no sunshine on many other days! Today is one of those 'other' days! This is the rain buildup outside my apartment window this morning - creating some flooded areas. Cold air and raindrops continue after a night of rain. It is as dark as evening this morning.

My card today brings a bit of color to the gloomy morning light. When I finished it yesterday it was still warm weather and there was sunshine and it seemed too dark for a Spring card - although I was making a 'guy' card for a friend. Today the bit of color on my work table seems warm and inviting. I used the Happy Together stamp set from SU.

It is so cloudy and dark that even by the window the room is in shadow and it was necessary to turn on the lamps to see. This is my pussy willow plant that was a gift for Valentine's Day and it is so delicate and pretty! I keep trimming the top until the leaves line the bottom branches and it is doing well! I have not had one before and I love it. Jim painted the birdhouse next to it and I will take a photo when the sunshine returns to show you the colors. :<)

Can you see all the water on the ground beneath the window?

Thanks for stopping by today!

Wishing you a happy day today and hopefully some sunshine!

Hi Barbara,

Love the little quail card. I just purchased this set, but it has yet to see ink. Hope I get some time to play soon and hope you get some sunshine.
