Wow, Thanks Giving week and you know what follows that! LOL How many times a day are you thankful? I mean actually say "thanks", not only to another person but to the Universe, to your creator? It is one of my most used words, said with purpose and sincerity. Sometimes I believe I am the most blessed person that has ever been, and I so want the Universe to know how grateful I truly am to be here. Here is a quote from Einstein that pretty much sums up how I feel. "The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives." "Imagination is everything".
My little owl tag, I gave owl a hat for Thanksgiving and it just suits him fine. All colors are Copic markers. The tag comes with a little tip from my studio, a small thanks to all of you who, visit here, comment and make my mornings with coffee bright and inspirational with your blogs and creations. Happy Thanksgiving!

We have had a short fall of rain in N CA this year, but maybe we are catching up a little. It rained a little yesterday and continues this morning. Earlier this morning I was sitting on the front porch with the outside cat Cass, watching him the rain and the snails, Cass hates snails, he walks around them like he is avoiding little land mines. Just to give you an idea of how crazy this mind works, LOL, I thought of this card and when I went inside, decided to do my hour with Sketchbook Pro. The background is one of my favorite gelli pulls, the snail was first sketched out with SBP and then to my ever faithful Cameo to cut out, I then hand colored with Copic markers, scanned in and again to the Cameo to cut. Then did the simple word block with the Cameo also. I have been clearing out our storage locker and found a couple of boxes with some really old cards, etc., and realized that all of my stamped images on them were hand-cut, I feel so blessed to live in this incredible period of time, the progress for our little habit has developed some amazing time saving tools. Hope your week is amazing, send someone a little snail-mail this week. Hugs

When angels pray, we are all Blessed. This is my morning exercise, angel was sketched with SketchBook Pro and then hand colored with Copic markers. I then took her to PS6 and used one of my cloud photos and doodled her in a cloud, and added my star. 2014 will be my year to refine and add to my PS6 knowledge. My each of you go into the weekend, watched over by angels, hugs

My son and wife are busy busy and they are always changing what they are busy at, so as Christmas rolls around I simply cannot keep up with what is in and what is out, so other than a little of this and that, they get money. I am always trying to figure out a new and creative way to present the monies. This year for me blackboards are in, I love them and love that they present themselves to so many things, so when my friend and neighbor presented me with a bin of old craft supplies, included were A LOT of the snap barrettes you can find at Michael's to decorate. I took a couple of them out and placed them on my table so I could figure out what I could do with them. I had a receipt and $5.00 on the table also and omg I had an idea, why not use one of my mini chalkboard blanks and create a money clip.
There were an assortment of sizes, I used the large one, perfect fit. I used Bistro Markers by Marvy on the blackboard blank, they are permanent in so much as they don't wipe off with a cloth as chalk does. I also discovered that the skinny Bistro's will work in my Copic Airbrush, that is how I did the snow, oh boy oh boy.
when the bill is snapped into the clip it is a snug fit, so it will not fall out.
I adhered the chalkboard to the clip with my trusty glue gun.
look at that! If you do not have mini chalkboards, you can use a couple of layers of chipboard and then decorate cardstock for the top. It would be fun to clip these to the Christmas Tree too. Happy Sunday, Hugs

I woke this morning and could not move fast enough to get my pictures downloaded and to begin play. My share this morning is a photo I took of tire tracks in the sand on Seal Beach. I printed it out on tissue paper, then printed the words out on tissue paper as well and adhered with gel medium to the tissue background, it will be my thank you card to my amazing hosts in paradise at the Ocean. Hope everyone had a fun Halloween and are well into a fabulous week, hugs
