Fred She Said Humming Bird and Columbine

Greetings Blogger's I wanted to show you this fabulous image from Fred She Said called Hunning Bird and Columbine. Isn't this gorgeous. You can find this at the Fred She Said Store here. This is such a pretty color blue. I shaded my Beaded Oval Spellbinder die cut with Stormy Sky distress inks. I just love working with inks.
I loved this image so much that I made the matching envelope to go with this card. This is something I don't get to do to much any more because of time constraints-but I love making my own "highly" decorated envelopes...lol

Here is the inside of my card. The top decorated portion is actually a removable tag. You just have to untie the bow and take it off to adhere pictures to send to a loved one. Thanks for dropping in today. I am hoping to get to craft a lot this weekend. I won't be leaving the house due to asthma problems.

We are dealing with a major wild fire since April 28 in the Okefenokee Swap. The fire has now burned about 23 square miles, or 14,500 acres. It is now to the point that co-workers are moving parents out of homes for mandatory evacuation this week. We heard 50 homes had to be evacuated. It is about 40 miles from where I live. Every day it is smoky here. You breath it, you taste it, you smell it. Not good for those of us with asthma. Sometimes it looks like it is snowing because of all the ash-other times you don't see the sun because the sky is filled with smoke. It's gray and red and orange all at the same time. I am taking my camera tomorrow to take a picture to post here.

Carol, this is another favortie of mine....all of yours are my favorites. Ha Love the shading around your hummingbird and the yummy colors you've used.
I'm so sorry to hear about your asthma problems. That has to be really hard on a person. The fires make me very sad and I sure hope they are under control soon.

How gorgeous, Carol! I'm so happy that you'll get in lots of crafting time this week (that's always so fun and restorative!) but I'm so sorry about the reason for it. I hope you are able to find some relief from your asthma soon. :)

Carol, that fire situation is just dreadful and so very sad. It must be very dry there. I pray for rain for you all, sounds like you really need it. Your card and envelope are just gorgeous, and I know first-hand how amazing your handmade envelopes are!
