Up early and ready to play...

The day started off a little on the early side, but I was up and ready to go... so I started the old computer up and found out what the challenge was today... Toy was hosting the Sketch challenge today and it is a GREAT sketch... so I started to think about it while I took care of all my mail... then got started... decided that it would be a good sketch for the Asian Fat Book Page that is due in January... so I tried one out... it went together fast... and since I have to do about 10 or so... this would be a good one... I would have to make all the background papers as they are all painted with my trusty Twinkling H2O's... but that is not a problem for me, as I love to use them...

I did choose a paisley blue paper for the background of this page, but know that I will have to change that... but I do like the page, and it might work .... will have to wait and see... the meaning of the page is a very learned lesson for us all.. the Asians dont' go fishing... they let the fish come to them... a mediation while 'fishing' is being done... a very meaningful thought to ponder... I have written that along the center strip... Let the Fish come to you!!!!

I then decided that I had better clean the house... as the dust bunnies were getting anxious to go out and play... so I did part of the house... then had to come and take a break... (most of the afternoon) in the studio.... had to play some more... so I sat down and started to work on this Pink and white card.. the Pink floral paper I bought a long time ago.. and like so many pieces of paper I SAVE it for a special time... most of the time.. that never happens... so about a year ago, I decided to use anything that I wanted... no specials at all.. so this paper got chosen today to play with... I love the flowers... and so I duplicated them by making some of my own, with punches... and added them to the card... I really would have liked to add a butterfly, but it would have been a little too much.. .

Then I had to make a few other cards... I had never made a snowman card with the 'ruffles' of velum coming down the hill... so I had a lot of fun doing that... and I also found this lovely Magenta stamp that I bought from Cathy K.. .now in Arizona... and decided to use that and make a pocket card with it... Thanks Cathy the stamp is lovely... I love it... and even though it took me over an hour to paint it with my twinkling H20's... I love it.. think I will do another one... but not today... have a few more Asian thoughts I would like to get out onto paper prior to dinner being made...

So it has been a fun filled day... should clean a little bit more, but will wait until the mood strikes me again..

Have a super great day, and create something special for someone, and enjoy what you are creating... it will show in the project and the person you give it to will also feel it...

Love, Light and Peace.. Bonnie...
