Across The Miles

Hi Everybody,

Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend.  The weather here in Florida has been incredibly beautiful the last couple of days.  It's been either hot, rainy, or both.  To say the least,  it's nice to have some cooler weather with lots of sunshine.

I started this card last Thursday, but only had a little time each day to work on it.  The good news is, I got to go work a couple of days (as an apprentice groomer) with a young girl I've been anxious to learn from.  I was so excited, I could hardly contain myself.  The not so good news is, one of my little dogs as been diagnosed with diabetes, and getting him back and forth to the vets has been time consuming.  He is doing better, and we are praying that he continues to improve.

I titled this card "Across The Miles", and did not add a sentiment to it, because I will be trying to help a very good friend raise money to adopt a precious little girl.  I hope to be telling you all about her in the very near future.

The stamp is called "You've Got Mail".  I used promarkers, and wanted to try and give the mailbox a weathered/vintage look (I hope I succeeded).  I made the little roses out of some yellow ribbon, that I first partly colored to imitate fall roses.  I used hot glue and thread to attach them to the card.  I'm not sure why, but the flowers on the right are not lavender as they appear to be in this  The papers are called "Homestead", and I cut out the design around the image, and on the coordinating paper behind the image.  I made the postage stamp tag in Paint Shop Pro, using a dingbat font called "Penmanship Birds".

I hope you like the card, and thanks for stopping by.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
