New Art

I have done two new cards this week. One is a postcard for a trade. The second one is my fourth Christmas card. I think the postcard will be saved for the trade I am doing with my art group. The reference was a plate I bought at the Goodwill Store.

The Christmas card reference was a bell ornament I bought at Michael's craft store. I have 3 of them and bought them mostly for art props.

I still have 10 Anything Goes cards still to do and get mailed. I have one card finished for the Out of Africa trade. And I have to do one ATC for a November trade on Scribble Talk. That one needs to be done soon.

I am still fighting my cold. I couldn't sleep last night. Every time I nodded off I would start coughing and choking. It is scary when that happens. So every time I sat at my desk today, I fell asleep. So tonight I am avoiding going to bed. I don't want to lie down and start choking again.

It's hard to believe that we are almost halfway thru November already. Thanksgiving is just around the corner. And then Christmas will be knocking. Where does the time go?

Wonderful uplift spirit, Jeanne. I notice yesterday too when I went shopping at the supermarket. The store put out all Christmas & New year fruit baskets or dry good gift baskets already.

About the sketchbook project, I did try to sign up but when I give my account and password; the web-site said that it cannot authenticate me. So I can only watch your outcome but cannot join.

May be next time, thanks for letting me know though.

Great job on both of these! You keep so busy. I did go out yesterday and find the Strathmore ATC cards, so I did a Christmas bell for the exchange and sent it in.

Hope you feel better. Colds are no fun!

I sure hope you get feeling Better. Love the background colors on that plate and the plate itself is pretty amazing. Nice work.
