Flower Challenge

   Time for a little fun...and I don't mean trying to navigate the ice on the way to my mailbox! Hero Arts Blog is sponsoring a Flower challenge! What a nice trip into the future/spring. The groundhog had it wrong this year if you ask me.
   Here's a variation on the same design...I'm trying Jennifer McGuire's resolution to make two of the same card once I hit upon a design I like. Great idea, and saves so much effort I'm finding.
    I think I might have to make some more flowers. It's really lifted my spirits. How will you put your own stamp on the challenge? You have until the end of this month to give it a go!

Snowflakes, Scraps, & Serendipity


   Hello everyone. Sorry to have been AWOL for a bit. Dealing with life, and snow, and pain, but I've got it under control for the moment. I wanted to show this little idea I stumbled upon with my scraps...took a brush, a few shades of blue, and went to town making intersecting lines on a die cut scrap of watercolor paper. I really like what happened and it was a nice accident that it happened to match the font in this vellum quote stack panel I had. 
   Here's what my desk looked like to give you an idea:
   I look forward to trying this again with some different scraps. Who knows what might happen? Be well friends and cherish your health.

Quotes and Calendars

   Two of my favorite things: quotes, and calendars. Found some old Latin daily quote desk calendar pages and thought I'd make a new quote card from it. Darling daughter off at college likes to cover her walls with things I think up and send to her along with her own curating.
   And here was trying out a color combination I've had on my 'to do' list for a while. Found these quotes with the word "awesome" in them on BrainyQuote.com. [another of my favorites along with Goodreads!] 
   Make it your own kind of awesome day friends.
