Happy 50th Nay and Mike

Today is my very, very dear friends, Mike and Renee's 50th Anniversary.

Fifty years and they are still lovin' each other and treat each other with love and respect!!!  How many can say that!

I am so proud that God brought Nay into my life....she is a treasure...always compassionate, willing to give advice, love and support.  She has taught me so much about art and life!  I love her dearly!

Hope you have at least another 25 years together, Nay!  HAPPY ANNIVERSARY with heaps of love!

F4A252, Reversi

Today's challenge on splitcoaststampers is to use up the scraps laying around your workspace from Christmas to make a non Christmas card.

All these pieces...except the "winter greetings" were left over from this year's Christmas cards...most ready for the waste paper basket!

WT510, Ornament

Challenge on splitcoaststampers is to have an ornament on your card.

Looked good until I took a photo and then I see what should have been done.  For example, use a Copic to color white filler on design paper!!

It is what it is!

Have a great day.

TLC512, CAS 303, Delphiniums

 Today's TLC challenge is to revisit any TLC challenge from 2014.

My favorite was TLC500...stamp etching. Wish I had taken a photo of how drab this delphinium was before the etching! It just came to life...I love how it turned out. Etching gives a depth to your image.

My glitter is the strips of gold glitter tap

IC471, Pendleton

Today's Inspiration Challenge comes from the Pendleton website.

I chose this jacket for the wonderful memories of my grandfather.  Granddad would always wear his Pendleton jacket in the winter.  I can still see him walking up the hill coming home from work, his pipe with cherry tobacco in his mouth!  He was the best of the best and I still  miss him and Grandma!

Fantastic journey this morning!  Have a blessed day!
