Saturday musings

I'm afraid I wasn't inspired this week. Nothing seemed to come to me. I love looking at other blogs though. If you haven't been to Creative Whispers, you need to take a look. Laura is a wonderful artist. Her speciality is art dolls and boy she can really create them. I think Laura's blog is one of my favourites. I also love to see what Gayle is up too. She is another of my favourites.
I promise I will be back this week with something new. I have some swaps to do on the Art For The Creative Mind group which I need to finish. Maybe I will see you there.

Today's atcs

These ATCs were fun to do. I just love the garden one. That little child is so sweet with his basket of flowers.

Saturday was a sad day

Sometime ago I posted the book I made for my friend Marj. She was diagnosed with cancer in February. The book spelled friend and she was all that to me. She was my best friend and it's hard to get friends like that. We did so much together. She was an artist too. Her love was watercolour. The walls in her home reflected her love of art. She was a fabulous Miniaturist. I can't tell you how many doll houses she had, but there were lots of them. Her basement showcased them. She made all the furniture and everything that goes into a real house, but in miniature. I will miss our days together. Days we went off touring the countryside to visit antiques shops, old book stores, craft and gift shops and always had lunch at some ethnic restaurant. Well, Saturday Marj left this earth for her higher home. I'm sure she is building houses and painting and doing all the things she loved to do. We will always be friends and we will meet again. I'm sure she will continue to inspire me and encourage me to do my best in my artwork. I love you Marj. "Til we meet again"

Wednesday offerings

I love doing cards that are quick and easy. I did a bunch yesterday but I mailed them off without taking pictures. Today I did more and I am posting them here. I usually make 6 of each kind. So I'm posting a different ones that I made. These are quick..about 10 mins each. I use Stampin'Up cardstock because I love the weight. The stamps are from SU also.

Atc Monday

The key to Pandora's Box. I don't know where I got this picture, had it kicking around for along time, so I thought I would use it for this ATC. It's kind of cute, don't you think?

Next on my list

Here are two cards made from ArtChix Inchie Sheets. I like the grid look and it's a great way to use up your inchies. Sorry if they are blurry.

Monday Monday

Today I worked on several things. I made 4 twinchies using ArtChix pieces. I made these for a swap called "Hats Off".

She said "Bingo"

Are you lucky at Bingo? The collage pieces are from ArtChix, the bingo card is by 7 Gypsies, I think. The letters are misc stickers I had in my stash.

10 minute ATCs

I just love the colours red/white/blue together. In honour of my American cousins I created these 10 minute ATCs. It was a great way to use up some bits and pieces of paper. They were fun and quick.
