Natures Grace

Hello Again!

For tonight I am posting on behalf of Make My Monday challenge blog. The theme this week is one of my favorites: Nature.

Nature. It is all around us and can be a wealth of creative inspiration. For me, I am concentrating on dragonflies. I grew up by a lake so these little flying miracles are very familiar to me. Our docks were always worn and needing repair but the dragonflies didn't care they just loved hanging out around the barrels that kept the dock afloat.

I would always somehow obtain a hitchhiker on my kayak as I was paddling down the river in college. These little guys have always reminded me of contentment, relaxation, and calm; perfect for a 'thinking of you' card. Here is my inspiration card, enjoy!

Soft tranquil colors adds to the calm of this gentle 'thinking of you' card
Detail showing the dragonfly panel. The wood vertical panel
brings texture to this design.

I encourage you to hop on over to Make My Monday and link up with us and see what is it about nature that inspires you to create? 


Thank you so much for stopping by to join me tonight! I really do appreciate your precious time with me. If you are so inclined please leave a comment and let me know what you think. Take care all and have a great night.

All the best,
Shawna
