A Serene Garden Scene

Hi everyone! I hope that you are enjoying a great weekend and terrific weather.

Did you know that July 26th is “Aunt and Uncles Day”.... yep, another obscure holiday probably conjured up by the likes of Hallmark or American Greetings. I tried to find the origin of this almost forgettable holiday but couldn’t track anything down. However, for me, it is a day to honor a very special pair of relatives that I do owe a quick note.

So I made this card with my special Aunt and Uncle in mind, not only to say hello, but to also thank them for their hospitality during my recent trip to the East Coast.

The adorable image created by Susan West of KLM Digital Designs is called Garden Shed and is one of their newest releases. I love the intricate detail that lends itself well to my style of coloring and card-making.

I’ll celebrate Aunt and Uncles Day by sending off this card.

Thanks for stopping by… and be safe in all you do.

This is a wonderful warm and homey image. I like what you did with it to let it just stand by itself. Such a lovely card.

Hi Peggy,
This is amazing! The roof looks real! Why did you ever think you might need a Copic class. Looks to me like you could teach it!
