Yumi and Fumi Challenge # 10

Yumi and Fumi Card

The stamp I used for this challenge is the Yumi & Fumi stamp.  I first found their stamps at the Carson, CA stamp show and immediately fell in love with their stamps.

I used Copic markers to color the stamp in and fussy cut round the outside of the image. The background papers are from Simple Stories 6×6 pad “Summer Fresh”

Ojai at Dusk February 19, 2013

Ojai Avenue at Dusk

Ojai Avenue at Dusk

Most of the time that I see a beautiful sunset on my way home from work, I don’t have my camera.  This time was different. I noticed a beautiful sky that was the backdrop of the Ojai Post Office tower one night around 7:30 as I drove home. Since I couldn’t pull over right away I decided to go around the block and park in front of my favorite country diner Bonnie Lu’s.  Its moments like this that just take my breath away.

Hawk on the line

Hawk on the line

While taking out the trash, I heard this guy before I spotted him. I searched the trees outside my driveway, but didn’t see him right away.  He was calling to another one in the neighborhood. The other one responded from a bit of distance away. Maybe they were communicating with each other. I didn’t notice until about the third shot (of my camera shutter…just to be clear) that he was eating something and it must have been pinned underneath his talons. I am just glad I didn’t see what it was he was devouring!

There is something very special to me about hawks. They seem spiritual and remind me of those who have moved on, reminding me that they are always with me.  This is similar to how I feel when I see a butterfly. They too, remind me how fragile this life is yet it keeps recycling the “circle of life.”

Speaking of butterflies, here is a picture of the “generations” of future monarch butterflies.
