Diana *Day 3*

You are going to love this sunset photo by Diana:

The orange in this photo is absolutely magnificent! The sun's halo creates a warm glow. A sunset always reminds me of God's greatness and the beautiful gifts He gives us every day, as long as we stop our hectic lives long enough to enjoy the simple things in life.

Here is my take on Diana's photo. I just had to play with those oranges and the bright sun. This card will soon be on its way to my favorite snowbirds... :) Can't wait to see you!


Thanks, my friends, for all of your comments! Your encouragement ALWAYS inspires me! :)

I really love how you don't copy you really are inspired by a factor. I think your desert sunset with the RV (caravan) foreground is brilliant! Oz
