Rain BOWS


Good Morning!  
Happy Sunday to you all!
What a Beautiful day here in Texas after a week FULL of rain, rain, and more RAIN!
Seriously, every day we had thunderstorms.
And on Wednesday, we laid my Grandmother to rest and showers poured even then.
My 6 year old said "Those are God's tears, Mom.  He is sad that you are so sad."
The things that come out of the mouthes of babes. 
Then, on the way home...after the rain...this was what we saw...

And I felt Peace.
And I knew it was all going to be ok.
It was God's Masterpiece.

And THAT was the inspiration for todays card.
I could not get the rainbow image out of my head...so I decided to put it on a card.
And the quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson was absolutely PERFECT to go along with the direction I wanted this card to go.
And of course...It is a rain BOW right???
I used the bow easy tool to help with that...
I tied a bow at the end of every ribbon of the my rainbow.
The various colors of double ruffle ribbon were perfect to add texture to my card.

And with that, I tell you, Have a WONDERFUL Sunday, and I hope your day is full of sunshine and rainbows!!!!

Thanks for visiting us today!

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your Grandmother. It must have been like she created that rainbow just for you on the way home. How comforting.

what a beautiful post! I am sorry about your grandmother. I love how God brings us comfort and reassurance! What a beautiful rainbow! You must live in South or Southeast Texas to have gotten rain. I live in North Central Texas (45 miles due West of Fort Worth) and have got NOTTA! This is a gorgeous card! Love all the little bows at the end of each ribbon! I'm going to get me some of of it! Thanks for sharing your creation!
