Really tempting to just sit and stare when nature throws a scene like this all over the morning horizon.

Click the link for Sky Watch Friday to see what bloggers from all over the world have found in their sky to share with us this week.
You know I am fascinated by colours and have to share the news that Tattered Angels has a competition (random draw) guessing the names of their colours “Nickname of a large city and I have many songs written about me” how easy is that one?  Guaranteed good fun click the link and pick your colours.

Ripples of Hope

Thank you to all the friendly Sky Watchers who make Fridays a wonderful world wide adventure seeing the sky from many different angles.  Sharing a view from an early morning walk just before the blazing sun popped over the horizon.
A new creative project using bits from old books, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and chipboard trims.

The evening beam that smiles the clouds away, and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray.” Lord Byron

Thanks everyone for your messages, am lucky to be in one of the dry places but can’t get to work because of flooding. Hope the water clears quickly so rebuilding can begin.
Sky Watch Friday is the highlight of my week, photos like this have become my journal and timeline to events or happenings, follow the link to see what 100s of bloggers from all over the world have found in their sky this week.

Saw the sweetest post over on Jill’s Bittersweet about thank you cards that inspired me to create

with a link to fun video clip about putting your gratitude in writing.

And Sarah's Beach Cottage for Good Life Wednesdays celebrating the little sprinkles of sunshine that folks find in their day.

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything thy goodness sends.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
