I have joined a group of ladies in the "Play Date Cafe." Their current color challenge is lavender and green. I also participated in their blog hop. What a bunch of amazingly talented gals. I love their blogs, ideas, and warmth. Above is my entry. The background of the card-more like post card-has been colored with melted crayon and glitter. The vintage image came from my files. I loved this technique so much that I made a dozen or more different cards in one sitting! I will probably post them in my FLICKR account also under Loosesparrow. Maybe I will sell a variety dozen on my etsy account. Just thinkin'.
My sweet hubby is finally going back to work this Wednesday. He has had a hard time taking it easy since he is a hard worker and very HYPER! Asking him to lie down or sit quietly during his recovery has been useless. He didn't go out to play in his new garage (like a good boy) but he PACED constantly! I like to rest, lie down, snooze, snore, faze out in front of the boob tube all the time....for no reason...even when I'm not sick, so I have a hard time understanding his energy. Let's face it....I'm jealous. If I had his energy I can only imagine what I would do--work 8 hours then take a walk or swim, teach more community classes, write a book, keep a cleaner house, sell my wares instead of piling them against every wall in the house. The possibilities are endless!
