about anything to eat but they twisted my arm and
made me do it.

You may remember a cupcake from awhile back or even

Let´s Eat

Let´s Eat

You know what they say don´t you?
Life is dessert first!

Yesterday I posted a piggy who happened
to be a binge eater and today I am eating dessert.
What does all this mean? Maybe I need to enter
therapy as soon as possible or just eat dinner
before posting is a better idea.

Paint Party Friday is serving cake today.
Why don´t you go have a piece.

What did you eat for dessert today?

Vamos a la Playa

Vamos a la Playa

I find it hard to belive that summer is almost here.
Whenever I think of summer I think of the beach.
I don´t live anywhere near the ocean. I have in the
past and I miss the sea air, the carefree atmosphere
that seems to abound near the water and all that
bright sunshine.

Today I painted a miniature watercolor of my
favorite beach.

What are your memories of summers gone by?

This is my entry for Crazy Amigos, One Layer Wednesday,

Flower Garden IV

Pink and Brown

Here is card number four in my watercolor
Flower Garden series.
Under the button cluster is a spray of
white vellum leaves and I used up some of
my patterned papers for the stripes.
You can click on the foto to enlarge it.

Three small punched circles were then
added along the bottom edge
and the large flower center is accented with
heavy body white acrylic paint. You can also
click on the foto for more detail.

You can see the first three cards in the series
by clicking here.

It just happens to be a Pink and Brown week
over at Theme this fits right in.

Wishing you all a sunny weekend.
