Thinking of You...

Hi there!
Happy Saturday to you!  And, Happy National Scrapbook Day!  I haven't scrapbooked in awhile and am certainly way behind because I prefer to make cards.  So, I have a card I made for a co-worker to share with you today.  Her mother-in-law just recently passed away.  She lived a good long life to the age of ninety-three!
I'm entering this card over at Word Art Wednesday.  I started with a purple card base and then embossed the white panel.  I colored the bouquet of flowers with copics.  Sentiment added along with pearls to finish off the card.

Today is a sunny day and a tad warmer, but we've been having a lot of rain lately.  But, in the midst of the dreary cold weather, we had a couple of visitors.  It brought a big smile to my face!  Here they are enjoying our rainy weather...

The lovely ducks were quite content swimming in the front ditch of our lawn until the dog spotted them and started barking.  We have a busy road in front of the house.  And, I didn't want them to get run over, but they made it safe and sound crossing the road.:-)

Well, that's all for now.  I hope you're having a wonderful weekend!  Thank you for dropping by!
