Hi, there!

It's another glorious perfect fall day here in NW Ohio!  The temp was in the high 70's with the sun shining.  We took in a bike ride before dinner.  After dinner, we walked over to our neighbor's wildflower field.  They made a nature preserve a couple months ago with a pond and planted gorgeous wildflowers all around it.  I can see the awesome field out my kitchen window.

I was inspired to made a water colored card...

The card doesn't even come close to how lovely the flowers are, but it was a fun try.  Ok, that's all for now.  I hope you are having a great Thursday evening.

Please take good care!  My heart goes out to all those who have been affected by the Las Vegas tragedy.  My sis-in-law and her husband were out there at the Tropicana Hotel.  They are safe...praise God!  Appreciate one kind!



  1. So happy your family was safe. Must have been very unnerving. My sis & her hubby were in Boston at the time of the bombing, but did the sightseeing the day before the marathon bombing. Really drives home that we need to make every day count--no guarantees. I can't believe the view out your window--stunning! Your card is beautiful, Maria--love how you cut the frame!

  2. What a sweet card, Maria! We are having another warm up here. I, for one, am done with summer and want autumn to overtake this weather!

  3. That field is just breath-taking! And SO IS YOUR CARD! I love when nature inspires us to create!

  4. Your watercolor flowers are so pretty!!! Love how you framed the card! And thanks for sharing the photos!

  5. What a beautiful and serene spot! Love how you captured all those pretty flowers in your watercolor scene! Stunning!

  6. Wow Maria! What a beautiful take on the pretty inspiration photos! I love all the beautiful flowers!

  7. Oh those Cosmos flowers are a pure delight- As is your card! Have a wonderful week!
