Inspired By Nature

I am sorry I have been away for so long.  My mother-in-law was staying with us as she recovered from a blood clot in her leg.  We got word one night from the nursing home that my father-in-law was critically ill and my husband raced back to Florida to be with his dad. I joined them a few days later and my father-in-law passed away the week before Christmas.  He now is at peace and life is beginning to return to normal in New Hampshire.

For Christmas gifts, I made up packages of six cards to give to my
co-workers at school. I always have liked this retired stamp- Inspired By
Nature.  I dusted off my watercolor crayons and used them to
create these Black-Eyed-Susans.  I colored directly on the stamp
then misted using a water bottle.  It gives a lovely watercolor effect.
