Winter Cards Giveaway

Morning Ride

Since it is snowing now, where I live, I decided to
have one last  GIVEAWAY of a set of five of
my Winter Watercolor Cards.

One each of the following different cards.....

Winter Cardinal
This is my prayer for you for this upcoming year:

"The Lord bless you and keep you,
The Lord make His face to shine upon you,
and be gracious to you.

The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, 
and give you peace."  

 Numbers 6:24-26

White Horse Inn

Each card is blank inside and comes with a
matching feather-edged envelope.
A generous amount of glitter is smattered onto
the snowy sections to give that frosty winter look.

These would make a great gift, or
use them yourself.


It's a most wonderful time of the year...

Winter Sky

Makena Dreamin'

We just recently returned from our wonderful vacation.
We spent two sun soaked weeks at our favorite beach in the
world ....( we have limited experience in the world of
beaches), but we love spending time here with our friends.

Here we are, my dear husband of almost 37 years, and I.
We sat basking in the warm sunshine, we ate, we swam,
we tasted some of the tropical island delicacies,
 we felt the sand between our toes,
we had a snack.

We took walks down the beach,
 we ate, we looked for shells, we ate, we felt
the warm trade winds, we ate, and of course we enjoyed 
the absolutely beautiful sunsets.....

Did I mention the wonderful food?

I was inspired to paint this lovely painting from the
 photo at the top of this post.

"Makena Dreamin' "
This lovely beach is located on Maui. 
 It is called Makena Beach (Big Beach). If you enter the
beach from the second entrance and turn right
 you will see this beautiful Kiawe tree,
watch out for the needles though,

 no bare feet until you get past this tree...
Then you will encounter the softest golden sand ever...
and behold the beautiful aqua shore breakers...

I have printed this painting onto beautiful, heavy,
 feather-edged cardstock. This is a set of 5,
but I do sell them as individual cards as well.
 Each card comes with a matching
feather edged envelope and is blank inside...

You can find these cards at my ETSY shop.
