Springtime Notecards

I wanted to have some notecards to send to those I write letters to this spring so I created this image and am having them printed up n heavy notecard paper. I might even print some as postcards. :-D

Mother and Child

this is an Atc I did for Beeps. she wanted a mother and child and since a sweet young friend of mine is expecting I decided to try and make one in her image. I hope you enjoy it Erica.
Here's to you Blakie!

Cartoon Request

This is Huckleberry Hound and Cecil the SeaSick Sea Surpent. I was asked to do these by T Beagler. I hope you enjoy them Toby!!!

I and J Alphabet of Life

I created these two ATC's for the Alphabet of Life series. I for Imagine More and J for Jettison Anger! Seems no matter how hard I try I just can't do people so small. Other than my girl I am happy with the outcome of the cards. I guess having a broken finger doens't help much either. Practice Practice Practice!!!

Ode to animals with glasses

Here are the atcs I made for a swap over at atcsforall of which I was informed did not make it alive. Their envelope was tortured and torn and they are now missing in action. I will miss you my friends. Thanks United States Postal service!

I enjoyed making them and maybe someday I can create them again.

Happy 100th Day Project 365! It has been great participating up to this point and look forward to continuing to day 365.

Springtime snowflakes

Okay so we had a twist of events here. We thought spring had sprung but a wild gust of wind came in from the west and blew us a few snowflake kisses. Thank goodness it only lasted a day!

ReaAnn wasn't sure what she was seeing., was it sunshine or snowflakes for the day ahead., aw heck, she just decided to stay in bed! :-)

Spring has Sprung

I am so glad to see that spring is really here. The weather has just been wonderful. In it's honor I have created this lil ATC for a Spring has Sprung swap. I do hope that my partner will enjoy it.

Look Mom., Springtime ATC

Look Mom.....

This was traded for another ATC made by Jill Bosh. She requested this for trade., I can't wait to see what she sends me in return.
Happy Spring

Spring has Sprung

I always loved it when my children picked the wild daisies for me in the spring time. Just wanted to share a drawing I did in memory of that!
Hope you are all enjoying your spring time!

The Tomb

Here is the Tomb my girls and I made for the Easter play at church last Sunday. It is made of USB board spray painted to make it look like a cave. The middle is cut out for the 'stone that rolled away' and was spray painted a bit darker then the cave to give it dimension. It is 8' tall and 8' wide. We had a great time building it!

I didn't hear anything about it falling apart or collapsing during the play so I assume all was well. What will we make NEXT Easter?

I love Owls

These are two atc's I did for a swap. My partner likes Barbara Lavallee's art so I created this in her image,

she also likes Linda I Lyons and thus this was created in her image.
I hope my swap partner enjoys these, I sure had fun making them.

April Fools Art Challenge

We had an art challenge for today over at Project 365. We were asked to draw, sketch, paint ... a blue man. It was quite the interesting challenge, here is what I did....

Carson realized someone played a terrible joke on him
as he passed his bedroom mirror after a long hot shower.
April Fools Carson....!!!
