Lately I have felt like the world is giving me little gifts of happiness in a weird way. See, I love mythology. I still have the opening of the Odyssey memorized. I had a teacher actually realize that she couldn’t test me on mythology and since the test, she gave needed updating had me write a new one for the class instead. I am strongest on Greek and Roman but I know quite a bit about Norse and have dabbled in any others that I could as well. Anyway, a challenge that has mythology as its base is just awesome, and that was only one part of the option! Oh and I discovered a reading challenge that has me excited as well!
Yay! Stencils! I had a lot of fun playing with stencils on this card. Even if the ink didn’t stay nicely in the area I was working on, I just covered the mishaps with sequins. I am in love with the new blending brush from Ranger. I want to get one for each color family.
The Easter bunny has come and left, and spring break is now over here. Hopefully, that means warm weather is officially on the way, but I am not going to hold my breath. I am just happy that spring cleaning should be done for the year! Now if we can just keep things in order until fall cleaning.
The image on this card just tickles me. I love the baby elephant dressed up and enjoying Easter. I think it also reminds me a bit of an old Cadbury egg commercial where different animals are trying out to be the bunny.
Strangely it is raining outside today. Ok, not so strange, I do live in Oregon. I need to get back to making bright sunny spring cards though. Not that I think the cards I make control the weather…
My gardening prowess is nill. I come from a long line of people who have beautiful gardens, it just skipped me. I surprise people with my knowledge of being able to look at a plant/flower and tell you what it is, I just can’t grow things. I don’t right out kill things (most of the time) I am like plant hospice, I help them on to the next life. I do however love visiting gardens and especially photographing what I find there!
