Saturday's Inspirational Challenge

The challenge for today was to be inspired by The Felt Garden
I used Artfully Asian From SU as the background for my card. I love the saying.
Enjoy and have a great Day!!

Limited Supply Challenge=Acrylics Only

This is Dr. Pea-Nut from a brand new company OUR CRAFT LOUNGE
I am so proud of the new owners and wish them well...Cambria, Joy, Marianne, and Kim...

I am not even sure where I bought this stamp, but Until I found COPICS I never liked how it turned out. I used circle scallops from nesties for the circles.

My Supply of Acrylic stamps is sooo limited. I think I have 3 sets
This one is from CTMH called Always Remember. This is also for the WSC66 of Beate'

Water Colors Challenge

The challenge was to use watercolor paper in some form or another. Here are my entries.

This is Holy Triptych from SU. All watercolor is completed with Reinkers and Aqua Painters

The following is a stamp that my niece Cambria (Stamp a little Love Baby!) gave to me. I used shimmerz to highlight the heart balloons

This is called Summer in the sun bu SU and I used watercolor crayons from SU with an aqua painter...The background was created using crayons and aqua painters. I live in Oregon and we do have beautiful sunsets.

My Dad....EXPIRED 11/11/06

I want to take a minute to remember my Dad on this the anniversary of his death.

He was one of the kindest men I have ever known. There are a lot of things that I could say about Dad, but I think the most important is that HE NEVER LIED TO ME. He was always there as a support, no matter how badly I had screwed up. He and Mom put their life on hold to help me when I had a horrible car wreck. When it came time for Dad to retire and he and Mom to travel...They were taking care of my disabled child because I couldn't. He love to fish and camp and the most important thing in his life was his sweetie ( my mom) that he met on his 16th birthday. They were married for almost 60 years when he died....November 11, 2006......Rest in Peace Pops...Know you are Missed Everyday.
