I have a fall card to share today, a birthday card for a friend.
Sitting Pretty is one of my top 10 Greetery sets, and here's why:
This is the view from our family cabin in Shaver Lake. So many of our friends have
enjoyed this sweet scene with me, among them, the recipient of this card. I hope she
enjoys the card as much as I did making it.
I love creating scenes like this, with details and layers. The mountains hold a special
place in my heart. We in California have watched sadly as drought, and forest
mismanagement have led to more and more fires. Our cabin and the neighborhood
were spared, while others were not. The fire crews assigned to Shaver
surrounded our village, and diverted the fire around the town and neighboring
homes and cabins. Never have I been so thankful to so many valiant and
devoted men and women! They even texted many of us with pictures of
our property to let us know we were OK.
If you get a chance, there's a fabulous documented video done by Jeff Aielo from
Facebook's Talk of the Hill, who works for PBS, called:
Jeff and his wife gave us daily reports of the fire's growth and devastation.
They continue to be the voice for those of us who demand action and better
management of the forests.
