Serenity - OSAAT #238

Hello my friends and Happy Sunday!  Gosh, what a week this has been. The rains have continued to come even though we've had a couple of breaks. Today was a very beautiful sunshiny day, but now tonight we're having more thunderstorms coming through. I'm very blessed that my home is situated such that I don't have to worry about getting water in it. A couple of my friends were not so lucky and will be having to do some restoration work on their homes. I was able to do a little more planting today, but my yard man is coming over later this evening to chat about some chores that I want him to do. I have a graduation party to attend in the later afternoon for a great niece who graduated from college and a nephew who graduated just yesterday from High School. It's amazing. In my extended family here in Texas, we only have 3 more that have not graduated from HS yet.

My card is good for me today.  I can use some Serenity!  Our theme for this challenge at One Stitch at a Time is Anything Goes with Flowers.

  2. Maggie, this is so pretty. Love the colors! Beautiful coloring and a very creative design.
    So glad to hear you're ok with all the storms. They just keep coming and coming and coming. I'm ready for a little dry weather now.

  3. So very delicate and beautifully coloured, I just love the way you have managed to keep such a flowing feel to this lovely creation hunny :) Big hugs, Jane xxxxx

  4. Oh, how pretty! Such beautifully matched colors, and I have to say I just LOVE that ruffly trim. Great image for a tall card. I'm glad to hear you're planting flowers, consulting with the yard man and going to grad parties rather than mucking out after a flood.

  5. Maggie this is gorgeous - love your colouring and the tones you have used.
