Sunrise - Sunset

Back again for a second post today, this one is a late entry into Rainbow Lady's Challenge - Sunrise - Sunset.  I particularly wanted to make a card for this challenge because I live as far north as you can get in the UK and at this time of the year we have some amazing white nights.  In fact when we have clear skies it doesn't get completely dark at night at all.  We moved here in June 1977 and the first night we didn't get around to putting the curtains up in the girls bedroom and they woke up at 2 am with the sun streaming in through the windows and thought it was time to get up, the eldest was 5, the middle one 3 and the baby was 10 days away from her first birthday.  It was always a struggle this time of the year to get them to bed and not get up in the middle of the night.  A couple of nights back I wasn't sleeping to well, and there was a bird serenading me - it was about 2ish in the morning!  The only downside of our long summer days is the very, very short winter days!

Onto my card, it was one I made for my SIL's 40th birthday and I forgot to take a pic of it before I sent it, so I asked my daughter if she would take one and e-mail it to me. I have just received it. The background is Big 'n Juicy Soothing Sunset and the images are Stampscapes, everything else comes from my stash.

Thanks for your visit

  4. Hello Beryl

    Your card is just fabulous, I love the beautiful colours they are so tranquil, set against the dark background - perfect.


  5. This is a beauty Beryl! Great scene and I just love the little guy in the boat! We resorted to black out blinds a few years ago to ensure a good night's sleep except there is always a bright white light along the top!
