It's been good catching up this last week. Thank you for all your comments and well wishes for Todd. One other thing I was reminded of- besides losing my art desk temporarily-is that my internet time will be very limited too! Todd needs to be on all day for work, and as we have crappy internet service and refuse to pay for extra high speed we must keep things to one device at a time. That has me taking advantage of my vow to cleanse/clean out. Already the car is full of bags I'm taking today to donate. And I'll be working at it more during the week.
On to the flowers! Finally got flowers and have them in the planters, and bought four of these hanging baskets-two for front porch and two for the back:
For the Simon Wednesday Challenge theme of "going dotty" I made this card:
Products: Altenew Layering Cupcake Stamps and Dies; white card stock; Inks- Archival Pink Peony, Buttercup; Marvy Uchida Ochre; Staz-On Spiced Chai; Versafine Onyx Black; Stickles Glitter glue in Diamond.
For T Stands For Tuesday:
LuAnn recently treated me for lunch-where else? Our fave Irish place McCarthy's Red Stag Pub! Our tea this time was a decafe pot of creme au caramel-a sweet toffee flavor with a caramel finish. It was divine in taste and smell! We decided to split our sandwiches to have half of each since both are both our favorites and neither of us could choose. On the left is the turkey melt and on the right, the roasted pepper, caramelized onion jam and melted brie.
I've been dying to paint these flowers again so during some quiet time on Mother's Day I did this journal page:
Linking this to Art Journal Journey hosted by Gill this month with the theme of "Elegance and Grunge" and also Paint Party Friday.
Wishing you all a super week!
