Thinking of You

I really wanted to make some cards even though it's a busy few weeks for me.  It's amazing how productive you can be when you're motivated--LOL!  I combined MFT Summer School Lesson #6 (Gallon, Quart, Pint) & Memory Box Challenge #2 (Red, White & Blue) using the MB Pristine Border die.  After inlaying the diecut into the red cardstock, I added Stickles Frosted Lace to the dots. 
Below the panel I added 2 rows of blue gems from a sheet I got for just $1. The sentiment from MFT Peaceful Wildflowers is stamped in VersaMagic Red Magic.  My gallon is red, quart is white & pint is blue. I'm also entering Anything Goes at SSS Monday
Here's a picture of the marina where our boat should be, but this year it's staying in the garage. There is a low water ramp & temporary docks in one arm of the lake with a bit more water--not enough for us to want to be there.  This is what it usually looks like in winter (waiting for snow melt) & should be almost full right now.
Hopefully we'll have snow in the mountains this winter to help end the drought.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Oh my goodness, the poor marina owner. He must be struggling with the impact of the drought as must be all the other businesses affected.
Sorry to hear of this...I did not realize the extent of the drought.

Your card is great...perfect for that Memory Box Challenge too!

Oh my gosh! Your lake is lacking some water. I live near a river like that but we've had some rain so maybe it has a trickle. Anyway, I LOVE that card. Those rows of bling! Woo hoo!

Beautiful and elegant card! May you get some rain soon! I think the east coast is getting the west coast rain this summer. Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

Lovely card, Greta!
So sad for our earth, when we were at Yosemite, we learn that there isn't any water at the waterfall during summer : (

That white lacy border pops gorgeously against the rich red background!

What a dramatic photo of the docks, really paints a clear picture of our drought! I too am praying and hoping for enough snow and rain this winter. Your card is so fun. I am in love with your rows of blue bling, so fun and so clever!
