WideEyedLife chose my Spring is Coming theme...
She is new to watercolors - you'd never know it, wouldya?

The back says, Spring is  Coming... Everyone is going out on the town.
This card is so detailed... there are tiny light blue marks on the white feathers. The hat is not just plain yellow, it has other subtle tinting, too. The border is gorgeous.
Thank you so much, WEL. I love it!!

Then Homerof2 chose my Childhood stuffie theme and she got out her old Kee Kee and took a portrait of it. As with most old stuffies, there is the worn out bit, which here is the tail. There is a bell in the tail. "Born" in 1963, same as me, she inherited Kee Kee from her older brother.
Adorable!

Thank you Homerof2. This is one of my fave subjects..... I love to see the critters and hear the stories.

Squee, double squee, and triple squeeeee!!!
Look what I got from llisaredd for my Possum theme.
How friggin' adorable is this??!!
Did you know that only baby possums can do this?  By the time they are grown, they are too heavy and cannot hang by the tail.
I am in love with possums ever since I rescued a baby one. Here is a pic of "Laura" and I...



thank you sooo much. I truly love it.

I received two a-mazing cards from llisaredd today!!  The first, above is for Spring is Coming!  It is so awesome!!  I love every little thing about it. It features a bulb sprouting. There are so many great details... the cut-out bulb(s), how the green is just barely peeking out into the air, the cool string roots, the bits of rock below, and to top it off, the bits of frosty snow layered at the top of the dirt... gentle little sparkles which I hope show up in the photo... Title is Seasonal Hope. What I feel so much as this time of year, each year.

Then for my Luna Moth,

This is equally as wonderful, with lots of cool details, an origami moth, very acurate with the pink antennae and everything!! And a bit of paper sort of like wax paper to show the fuzzy effect of the upper body.  And a full moon, silver and wonderful, and just peeking out over the edges of the night. Man, I love these details!
Thank you sooo much, llisaredd. You did a bang-up job on both!!

Hey, llisaredd also sent me another incredible card... go to the March gallery to check it out.

Here is the pen and ink that Oath Keeper made for me. I love all the different elements, but I have to say the dark black and white odd shapes are my fave. My dad just gave me a book on how to do zentangle. I am very reluctant to try but now i must!  Thank you OK!


Check out the stunning Luna Moth that smiley yogini made. It appears to be a combo of watercolor and acrylic... The moth is cut out and superimposed on the background. Gorgeous colors! Thank you so much!

Here is the oh so funny card that ChameleonHound made for my weird theme - things you should not put in a toaster...

The suggestion box next to the wacked-out toaster was just used. Inside is a note... get a new toaster!!  Can't imagine what someone put in to make it smoke like that. I love the paper she chose to depict the toaster, and also the tablecloth and wallpaper. Thanks so much, CH!!

I have several goodies to show off!
First, cmarion3 made, for my crow sitting in a tree saying something obscure, the following Latin (!) crow quoting Shakespeare -


Cras means tomorrow in Latin. The quote goes 'round the border, which I think is cool and the crow just makes me laugh!  Nice job, cmarion3. I really like what you did with all the mixed media!  Thank you.

Next up, from fancybutch, she made me an ATC for my theme 'falling down barns" but she also made the most adorable greeting card, plus an 'extra' cuz she heard my compliments on a previous alterred text card. Here they all are -



digital art. I am clueless as to what that means. Please do tell, fancybutch. I love the colored tone.



thumb-print kitty.... squeeee!!



my eyes bugged out when I saw this one!  Not only is the poem interesting, but the colors blending together are drop dead gorgeous. How sweet of you to give this to me. I am gonna try one today!!
Thank you so much.

Here is the wonderful carefully crafted "childhood stuffie" that KittyHerman made for me.
His name is Mousey and she still has him from when she was 4!
I am amazed at the detail, all the stitching and such. I luuuuv this card!
thanks so much, KittyHerman!

ok, when I am previewing this post, it looks like the image is not coming on. I am gonna try anyway, then try again if it fails.
