“You see, I have set my rainbow in the sky. This will be the sign of the covenant I have made with you and all creatures, never again to destroy the earth by a flood. It will always remind us of the promise between you and me.” (Genesis 9:12-16; paraphrased)
This picture was taken a few days ago while I was standing on my back steps...
One of my favorite poets is Robert Frost. His words create such beautiful pictures in my mind as I read. One of his most familiar poems is also one of my favorites:
Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
So what does all this have to do with stamping? Nothing, really! Except that I promised myself that I would stamp a card today and update my blog! I just like poetry and photography and stamping~
As artists we should promise to always give credit to the ones who give us inspiration for our work -- whether that be poetry, photography, music, or stamping! I was inspired today by our Featured Stamper, Cambria Turnbow. You can see the card I cased here (as long as the SCS site is working, anyway!). I changed the colors and sentiments, but kept everything else similar, as Paint Prints is my all-time favorite set!
