Bits of Art!

The Gypsy and I are happy. The new "Artful Blogging" is here.

I've been pouring over the beautiful blogs and photos -- some familiar to me, others new. The photography inspires me!

So, I thought I'd post a few pieces I've just finished. All are cards -- these are full-sized, blank 5x7s.

Do you recognize this? It's the ATC from Pink Saturday, only bigger and bluer!

And this is art from a vintage postcard that so resembles the late, great Stimpy, I can't resist it!

Then, thanks to the Cuddlebug, some shortbread-mold pressed paper and a little bit of ribbon, I pulled together bunches of note cards.

Who knows -- Invitations? Thank you notes? Baby blessings? They will have a life of their own -- with me or with someone else!

A reminder to newer readers that if you or so someone you know is grieving the loss of someone they love (or anticipating that in the near future), I am posting a series of articles about grieving (each including a recipe) on my other blog, Chopsticks and String. The first is in place; the others will publish between now and the holidays.

Your cards are lovely! All of them!

I'm way behind on your blog. Will have to catch up this week.

I'm jealous that you get magazines earlier there. Our Booksamillion doesn't always get all the ones in I'm interested in and they seem to be weeks later than other regions.

I love your cards, Jeanie, especially the star. So much impact and such a simple process.

Kitty looks all comfy and ready for any pose she can strike for the camera.

Have a great Tuesday!
