Tracy looked out our kitchen window one morning this week, and saw a large package sitting on the front step. It was a fabulous box of oranges sent directly from Florida from friends of ours who are there visiting now. Some of the oranges had frozen, and we were afraid they'd be ruined. But fear not, they are delicious!
Many months ago, I signed up for Kim Klassen's Be Still 52 class. Like some other classes, I never got going with it. Seeing Rinda's photos from the new edition of the class prompted me to get going, and I'm working backwards on it. Today I came across a prompt - "Citrus" - use some citrus fruit to tell a story. So here's my still life of the fabulous salad I made for dinner tonight.
I had time today to get a thank you card made to send to our friends. They'll be coming home while we're in Florida ourselves, and I wanted our thanks to be waiting for them.
The Phrase Play #6 die from Papertrey Ink seemed perfect for a sunny thank you card. After die cutting it, I backed portions of the die with strips of Pure Poppy, Harvest Gold, and Orange Zest cardstock. "You" and the stamped portion of the sentiment are both from Simon Says. When I laid the finished piece on the orange card, it seemed to need something more, so I scored three lines and then adhered the die cut piece.
The last two days before we head off on the road trip to Florida are filled with appointments and errands. Fortunately, it was a pretty quiet weekend, so I'm well-organized and almost packed for the trip. It snowed again all day, lightly---only a few more inches, but the thought of green trees and warm breezes gets more and more attractive as the winter drags on.
