A Little Bit Country

Nothing says "country" like a beautiful front porch with a comfy chair, flowers, a craft, and a friend. This image has it all! I loved the image of the quilt draped over the arm of the wicker chair, and decided to replicate that motif with a little paper quilting of my own. I used to colors of Bella Rose paper to weave a quilt, as you can see on the left-hand side of this card.

{recipe: On The Porch (SU), Filigree (SU), Fancy Flexible Phrases (SU), kraft/kiwi kiss/pink pirouette cardstock, Bella Rose papers, pink taffeta ribbon, button, versafine onyx ink, sepia ink for distressing, with prismacolor pencils and gamsol}

I feel blessed to have a front porch, one that is big and deep and can accomodate my vintage metal rockers, a rug, my garden things, and all my flowers. It is so nice to sit there and craft or read a good book.

Front Porch Reading

I've spent many any afternoon on my front porch, looking at this magazine that my sister, Tina, bought me! Thank you, Tina! It is filled with photos of wonderful studios where women practice their art. So inspirational! And speaking of A Little Bit Country...Marie Osmond is featured in this issue, and she looks absolutely adorable!

Take some time today to sit outdoors and marvel at God's wonderful creation!
