feeling grateful

our theme over on SPA this week is GRATITUDE...

there's so much I feel sad for these days but I do have some bright spots in my life... my beautiful daughter, my friends and then there is nature. i am truly grateful for the beauty that surrounds us in nature.
Whilst I was making my postcard, I was debating what I wanted to do on it. I decided on nature and what happened? a ladybird appeared on my work table! a sure sign i was going in the right direction.

show us what you feel grateful for :-)

photo is atrocious, i will retake in the morning :-)

shine brightly

wow.... my mojo has been stuck in a rut for sometime now.... i just cannot seem to motivate myself to make anything paperie.

But thankfully, this week Mr Mojojojo has paid me a little visit to make this postcard.


Also my glasses are broken so Im thinking this pic may well be a tad blurry. lol

Venus Smiles Not in a House of Tears

This week's theme on SPA was chosen by Stacy but for unknown reasons I have had to make the sample myself

I've used a stamp of Botticelli's Venus (just her head) that I've had in my collection for yonks and zettified her up.

Legs Eleven

This week, Marion has chosen the theme of STRIPEY LEGS.

The theme is close to my heart... I love all things ZETTI. I have a whole box of zetti dolls I've made over the years. I scan them and keep the originals and then I can resize them as and when I want to use them

This first one is an altered Frida doll. Really pleased with this postcard
 The second postcard I've made this week, is using a 'doll' I made. I love using giant eyes

Women and Cats shall do as they Please

Deann has chosen the theme of CATS on SPA this week....
 I've used this image from Terri Kahrs... It's one of my favourites and reminds me so much of our old boy cat Austin... 
 Can you see the resemblance?

thanks for looking

The Sweetest Thing

This week the theme on SPA is DOLLS....
I found this image on Pinterest.

I've used a lot of layers on top of a collaged background.

I've used the word 'courage' on here to represent Lily as on Monday 9th July it will be the 3 year anniversary of my beautiful girl dying of cancer. 

have a great Sunday

hey you, yes you

This week, our hostess on Sunday Postcard Art is Anne (cornucopia) she's chosen the theme of Asian.... lovely popular theme.

This is mine
hope it's not too dark, the difference in my phone and the laptop is huge.

I love the facial expression on this young lady and the quote goes so well with it.

 This is my birdhouse from last week, unfortunately I keep forgetting to blog after I've uploaded to Instagram :-( and then the week is gone.
