Flowers And More
LuAnn is celebrating her birthday this week by spending time alone in the beautiful Adirondacks in New York so I sent her this card early. Remember the other week when she and I got together and stamped and die cut like mad? Well, these birds and accessories were some of what we did so I knew I had to make her a card using them.
Here's a more detailed shot so you can see the dimension:
On Mother's day I received three beautiful bunches of flowers:
and these gorgeous red sunflowers from Todd who knows my favorite color:) I feel like I should try to sketch and paint them in the future.
Speaking of lovely, thoughtful gifts I received a packet in the mail last week and this is what was in it:
stamps, papers and a beautiful card from Erika! Thank you so much for thinking of me-you're purging is my gain:) I'm thinking though that I should treat my art supplies as I do clothing: if I buy something I must also get rid of something. Ha! we'll see.
I don't know about where you live but spring played a nasty trick and disappeared over the weekend. It got COLD and windy along with some rain and the threat of frost, so tender plants had to get covered:( and it is still unseasonably cold, SO, out came a nice big cup of vanilla chai tea (decafe of course) to keep me warm while preparing backgrounds in my journal:
I'm joining Elizabeth and friends for T Stands For Tuesday. Bring a cuppa and join in on the fun won't you?
