But these MAY showers are giving me lots of coloring time. This is a digi image from Firecracker and I have been trying out different color combinations as well as different backgrounds. About the only thing I have settled on is the rocks --- I really like doing the rocks with a soft gray, a warm gray and a peach. Well, no, a couple of them have blue or green.
Photos aren't cropped. I couldn't get the scanner to work as well as the camera to take a picture that is true to color. Usually I go outside and use daylight but it is pouring right now.
This sketch was really challenging for me with the angle on the top - maybe not my favorite card ever ... but gosh, this is for someone who has been getting birthday cards for 80 years, how can you top that !
A dreary pot on a dreary day ... but I had fun creating the flowers to brighten it up. And the rain outside is certainly encouraging MY flowers to grow as well. Ok so one of my geranium pots has silk flowers that were on sale at JoAnnes ... and they aren't too likely to grow.
My pal Barb is recovering and needed a card to cheer her up. How could this elephant not make her smile! I found the image online -- and loved it. Barb is a quilter so the card had to have stitches and buttons. The flamingo is a punch art steal from a card I saw online.
Here is a direct quote from Donna C but I love the sentiment and can't say it any better than she did ...
