Farmers Make Such a Difference

I live in the middle of farm country which has given me a first-hand view of the difficulties farmers have experienced this year, at least in our area. The weather has not been kind to them - flooding out crops or flooding even before the crops were planted.

Since they've been on my mind, I decided to use two Raisin Boat stamp sets (Homegrown and Flourishing Thoughts) to make a card to send to a good friend who is a farmer.

And here's a tip - when you go to the Victorine Originals (SumMore Fun) online store, be sure to check out the pricing options before you place the set in the shopping cart. Many of the stamp sets have a temporary liquidation price and/or a used price, either of which will save you some money.

But I digress. Here is my card...

I normally color with Copic markers, but for this card I chose to use my Prisma Watercolor Pencils instead. 

Now I remember why I like my Copics so much. :/

The sentiments (the front and the inside) are both from the Flourishing Thoughts stamp set.

Speaking of the inside of my card, here it is...

I really like how the image turned out with your pencil coloring. The lighter hues look really good. Paired again, with the perfect DP! Great card.

What stunning card Jeanette, and I love the way you have coloured it. Such a thoughtful card for a farmer friend too.

This is so true. We should be praying for them and their success every single day! Wonderful card, Jeanette!
