Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #14

oday Chase spent the day working at LifeWay on a curriculum project, so I got to ride to and from work with him. It was pretty fun just to ride and talk. On the way back today, I saw the prettiest rainbow! I've always thought rainbows were beautiful but today it really took my breath away. It was a huge full rainbow and so, so bright. In that moment I was impressed with God's gift to us. How smart was He when He gave us such an incredible, unexpected, wonder of nature.

I did have a chance to participate in Dawn's color challenge! Here are the terrific colors she picked:

Here's my card (please excuse the background my flash is doing some weird things:
Stamps: Polka Dot Basic
Paper: Vintage Cream, Elegant Eggplant
Ribbon: Martha Stewart
American Crafts Flair
Ink: Versamark and Clear Embossing Powder

We dropped off my sister at college this Sunday. My Dad, Mom and I were all sujavascript:void(0)per emotional to leave her! It's just so hard to believe she is starting college! Since Alison is eight years younger than me, my mom has always called me her "other" mother! I can't imagine how mom's feel when they send there kids off to college - such a tear jerker!

We are so proud of you Ali! We know you are going to do amazing things!
