Sunday Postcard Art - Time for Tea

This week the theme for Sunday Postcard Art is 'Time for Tea.'  This picture was taken April 10, 1978, at Disneyland of course.  This is me, my mother (aka Grandma), and my daughters Sara and Treena having a ride in the cup and saucer.  This was the girls' birthday, Sara turned six and Treena turned three.  After a wonderful day in Disneyland, we went back to my aunt's for dinner and a Snoopy ice cream cake; a sweet memory.  Cheers!

Theme Thursday - 2 x 4

The challenge for Theme Thursday is 2 inches by 4 inches.  Create a piece that measures 2"x4" using any medium.  I started by stamping this Crafty Secrets stamp of the little birds onto a piece of sheet music and painted them with some distress ink.  The little nest is a Lockhart stamp and the expression is from the same Crafty secrets set.  Do visit the Theme Thursday blog and see some of the fabulous pieces for this week's challenge.  Cheers!

Wonderful Gift!

I received the most amazing gift in the mail today!  Amazing in so many ways, it was totally unexpected and for no occasion, this gorgeous card and necklace created by my very good friend, Donna, just because she was thinking of me!  Little did she know, I was thinking of her too.  On the inside of the beautiful easel card she said that she misses our play time together - I just said the same thing to my husband this morning! We only live about two hours away including a short ferry trip but we don't seem to get the chance to make the journey as often as we'd like.

A hummingbird is a very special symbol to me, it invokes the spirit of my amazing mother who we lost two years ago next week.  This gift fills me with love; love for my Mom and love for a very special friend - thank you Donna, you are an amazing artist and an inspiration, hope to see you soon.  Love you lots.

Theme Thursday - Spring

Spring is such a wonderful time of renewal, the days are longer and more energizing. On the west coast of Canada we have had a very mild winter and are in the full throes of spring - the crocuses and daffodils are up and the cherry blossoms have burst from the trees, it is quite beautiful. This is my entry for Theme Thursday - Spring. Cheers!

Three Muses - Newspaper

This week's challenge on Three Muses is 'Newspaper.' I thought this was going to be quite a simple challenge, I actually like things stamped onto books and dictionary pages a lot. Well, I've been playing with newspaper for two days now and have not managed to create something I am happy with. After my stamp pad fell onto this poor ATC, I decided to call it a day and get it posted before something else happened! Image is from Lisa's Altered Art. There are some wonderful entries on the Three Muses challenge site. Cheers!

Today's challenge for Mixed Media Monday is "It's Not All Black & White." I added a bit of pale plum to my fairy's wings and socks and to the flower petals; the plum wouldn't scan anything but gray until I put a piece of the plum paper behind the tag. I love this little fairy, she is from Red Lead. Hope your day is full of good surprises - Cheers!
