Grow better with love...

Good morning!

I'm back today with another card for Whimsy Stamps and this one features the enchanting Veritas by Sylvia Zet. Over the past decade I have watched many of the apple orchards that I grew up with be replaced by vineyards and you can't seem to throw a rock without hitting some kind of winery or tasting room in my home town. Now I'm not much of a wine drinker myself but this beautiful little vineyard sprite just had to make it on a card celebrating the change in season and the coming grape crush. I love how her long flowing hair almost mimics the curling vines of the grapes. I really wanted her to have a place to live in this so I used my Copics to sketch in a lush vineyard in the distance. Now she looks like she is guarding over all those yummy grapes. :)

Thanks for dropping by and saying hi... I'll chat at'cha again tomorrow!

Speaking of long flowing hair... your artistic hand just turned hers to pure loveliness. The background paper is also such a nice touch. Truly a “feel good” card... beautiful!
