Here is a simple rubber stamped card I made last week for our 'across the street' neighbor. She had invited us to walk up her driveway anytime and enjoy the view from the porch of the cabin on her property that overlooks the Farmington Valley. Our road is situated on a small mountain ridge and some of the houses on the road are lucky enough to have a gorgeous view! When Steven and I called Joan last week to see if it was a good time, she was delighted, and told us to come right up. Amazingly, my grandparents lived on this very same road when I was a teenager. They also lived on the cliff side and their view was much the same as what I was seeing at Joan's ~ it felt almost like a dejavu, being there.
I mentioned my grandparents and Joan remembered them! She said they had been to her home for cocktails! Wow.
I wanted to thank Joan for our delightful visit with her that afternoon and create a card that looked like her cabin sitting there on the edge of the cliff. I found a cabin stamp that was in with my Stampscapes stamps, a grass stamp, and a tree branch. Everything was stamped with Brown StazOn ink and then just a bit of colour was added simply with chalks. I stamped an envelope for Joan, and popped it in her mailbox - we do have bears in the neighborhood and Joan and I have both had a ride in a hot air balloon : ))
