Fab Friday – Thank Yooou!

The team over at Fab Friday have posted a clean and simple sketch for their challenge this time. It was just what I needed for this special thank you card for my aunt who has, once again, shown what a generous “I’ll do anything for those I love” person she is.

She also has a great sense of humor…

Dreaming of Spring

This morning, as I looked over the weather for the day I once again thanked God for allowing me to live in a warm climate. Yes, I really did.Ā To be honest, He is used to hearing that sentiment from me. šŸ˜ŽĀ While some relish snowy days and cold temperatures, I am happiest with warm, tank-top, shorts and sandal-wearing weather. Any kind of cold makes me want to stay inside and sleep! A lot like this little bunny who is making himself comfy in the daffodils…

This rabbit makes me think of an article I read this morning by Jeff Mastersā€¦ after sharing information regarding the weather, he shows one of his weather “predictors” – his rabbit! Check it out here šŸ™‚

2019 the year of color

The last few days of staycation between Christmas and New Year’s have been very low-key around my house. We anticipate that 2019 will be a busy one, so I think we were just enjoying theĀ chill time while we have it. While my guys were enjoying games and movies, I escaped to my craft room to play around with color.

One of my creative challenges (to myself) this year is to learn more about color. Along with taking an online coloring class, I decided to play along with theĀ MFT color challenge this week. Color combos don’t come naturally to me (one of the reasons I wear blue jeans so much) so challenges are a great help and coach!

The challenge helped me with my patterned paper choices and even with what images to use. For some reason the gray made me think of my Cuban coffee maker (not espressoā€¦ no, no – this one is reserved for Cuban coffee. Bring on the sugar.) I was able to tie in the remaining colors on the cups.
