It Didn't Take Me Long...

It sure didn't take me long to make a mess on my new work table! 


I started making a card for a friend of mine who is in hospice with maybe a year to live. She loves anything red so I made sure to include it in her card...


This is the same technique I used to make postcards last year. You can see some of them here. I love making these gals wearing hats.


I hope she brings a little joy to my friend.

  4. Great card, Janet! I'm sure it will bring a smile to your friend. I'm so sorry for her circumstances, though. On a much lighter note, though, I'm glad you are "christening" your new art space with some wonderful art-making!

  6. Lovely card I am sure she will love it. I love the hat. My mom loved to wear hats and she loved to wear red so this makes me think if her.

    You've broken the spell and made a mess on your table, hope this now leads to lots of inspiration. Your regular art updates have been missed.

  8. What a nice card, and the ones you linked to too. You should do them more often, they represent your cretivity in a beautiful way. I also remember the beautiful ones you made with scarves in winter scenes.
    Now you made me want to use my colors again, but I'll have to wait till next week.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  12. Even though I hardly ever wear them, I love the look of hats. The card is so cute, Janet, I bet it will bring her a smile. That is so thoughtful of you, including her favorite color too.
    Sorry to have been so absentee this summer. I've just been playing catch-up on your posts and I'm so sorry about your fall! Gosh, your poor leg. I don't know how you've managed to to do all you've done with your studio etc - and in this heat we've been having too! Hope you heal quickly! ((hugs)) Hope this takes too, as I still seem to be having problems with some blogger blogs...

  17. What a lovely thing to do for your friend, I know it is something that will definitely brighten her day.
    As for your studio, it doesn't take long to start getting supplies out and going for it...after all that's what it's for! I can't wait to redo mine and hopefully make the change last this time! haha!
