Sweet Sunday Sketch

Another rainy day means more time in the ole craft room! Since I still had these supplies on my desk from an earlier project, I went with the same inks and stamps for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  As much as I love the warm, rich colors of autumn, I had to break that routine up a bit and go with the springy pinks and greens.  

STAMPS: Vintage Flowers (Altenew); Amazing Grace Plain Jane (Verve).
PAPER: White, Old Olive, Regal Rose.
INK: Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Versafine Onyx Black.
ACCESSORIES: Stitched scallop border die by Lil' Inker Designs; Adhesive pearls. 

The nearly constant rain for a solid week has meant many headaches for people here in VA... flooded basements and yards, closed roads and the ground so super saturated that trees are falling.  Yesterday late afternoon, I heard what sounded like a huge sonic boom!  This is a huge oak tree that decided it didn't want to hold its ground anymore!  It doesn't look very big since I took the photo a good distance away.  I'm just thankful it landed in our open field and not on any buildings or wires!  Guess God thought someone needed some firewood this winter - lol!

So thankful that big oak tree didn't fall on anyone or anything. Sorry you have had so much rain.
