It's A Warm Fuzzy Day!



No doubt that fall has arrived in Northern California... Today we had our first major storm of the season and for once, the weather forecasters weren't kidding! Lots and lots of rain fell here at Rancho Durenberger: I have cranky horses, wet and stinky dogs and a bumper crop-o-mud! On the upside, we still have power and I've managed to keep my lil' wood burning stove quietly generating consistent heat, but not the kind that sucks down the wood like popcorn! We're warm and dry and thankful. Here's a lil' card to celebrate...



I popped out some Earth Love from Cosmo Cricket that was given to me by my lovely friend, Dana! {Nothin' like spreading Earth Love around to make the WORLD a better place, eh!?! She's the best!} In addition to their FANTASTIC sketch, the girls from Get Sketchy were also asking for some Water Color work, this week, so I tried not to disappoint! I owe them a HUGE SHOUT OUT! I had the fabulous honor of being in their TOP 5, again! And this time, I was "in the money!" Yep, friends - I WON a fabulous paper pack from Pebbles, that the D/T gals made FANTASTIC samples with, so I'm still pretty giddy over that!!! If you want to check out the bounty, please, please visit Get Sketchy {and do tell 'em I sent ya! hee hee}... Just wait until you see their super samples!

Here's their latest sketch:



Oh, this was FUN! Here's a close up of some of my Water Color work!


Such a CA-UUUTE sqirrel image by Hero Arts! I guess I'm really in to creating little "scenes"... I just had such fun with these ingredients! Here's one more shot of my card, just because:
