Today (Friday) was a wonderful day, which started with a beautiful sky just before sunrise, continued with crisp, cool and sunny weather, with a wind that was fresh but not too aggressive, and made us a present of a lovely sunset over the Rhine, perfect! I was out for three walks, it was just too nice to stay home and do the planned H*******K, and I felt that I needed a relaxing day after my hospital eye-examination marathon yesterday, where I got 5 hours of exams and tests. I have a date for the cataract OP, February 24th, and will only have to stay one or two nights in hospital. It's a bit complicated as I have already had a lot of eye OPs, but I am sure it will go well.
So today really was a gift, and I made the most of it, who knows how the weather will be tomorrow?
My shadow was so long, it was on both sides of the stream!
The clouds were racing along, wonderful to watch, they seemed so full of energy!
And the Rhine was illuminated by the sunset.
This card is one of my DT pieces for Gecko Galz. I used an image from the Winter Garden 2 Collage Sheet. If you buy images this month, you buy one and get one free, so hop over and have a look!
I painted some corrugated card with white emulsion paint and glitter. I mounted the image, which was printed onto matte photo paper onto bronze mirri-board and grey card, to pick out some of the colours from the image. For embellishments I used some half pearls, brown lace, and a golden ribbon. I added the photo of Erika, a distant relation who I cared for for years, as I thought she looked so much like the little girl in the image - their clothing is similar, too. Erika's photo was taken in 1916.

Have a great day, take care, keep warm or cool as the case may be, and thanks a lot for coming by!
