a few things, and Sketchy Thursdays!

hiya! can't believe it's already WEDNESDAY, crikey!

well there's lots going on - the first thing you should do is pop over to The TownScrapper to see who's next in our Mother-Daughter featured artist spotlight! we have an AMAZING team hanging out with the Scrapettes this week, and they've done GORGEOUS work with the Victoria Case stamps they chose!

next, the new Elements Challenge was posted yesterday at Design Dollies, and the theme for this week is NURSERY RHYMES! GORGEOUS samples from our Dollies, and we've seen a few amazing submissions so far! you're GOING to want to play along for the month of May, because holy wowza! the prizes! :) just go!

annnnd, we're in the middle of another Dollie Call - have received a SLEW of applications already and lemme tell ya, it's going to be TOUGH to choose our next Dollies! seriously talented folks, who want to play with US! i'm feeling a little verklempt! thank you for the love, friends! we're so glad you're enjoying what we do over there. :) check out the Dollie Call here - you have until May 25th to apply.

and because i had so much fun making my collage art for Envious last week, i decided to play in my art journal again, this time for the guest spot at Sketchy Thursdays... the sketch is awesome, and i knew exactly what i wanted to do with it. :) here's my submission (let's see if i make it to the voting this time - i love playing with those girls!): ya gotta click to enlarge!






the image is from an old greeting card - i'd saved it for a very special message to US... my hubbin and i just started therapy last week, and this is a little reminder to myself that while the road may seem long, we'll be okay as long as we tackle it together. i won't show him, but i know it's there, and i know we'll be fine. :)

fingers crossed - both for the guest spot, and the therapy!

  4. I so wish I was going to be able to see you next week when you are up here... I want to give you a hug in person and not just write "HUG" like I always do. But *sigh* I have to settle for just "HUG" here.

    Love the page for the GDT challenge!!! Cool extras all over!

    And I am definitely sending positive thoughts on the therapy. Sending... sending... sent! :)

  18. Just loving your style xx Curious about what size your art journal is ~ I've often thought of making one so I can play around with techniques and stuff, but I've never really had a firm idea about where to start. Inspiring work.
    Wishing you positive progress as you work through whatever issues you're dealing with. You've got a fab attitude and believing in the two of you is more than half the battle. {{Hugs}}

  19. PS, I haven't visited for a few days, but I also wanted to tell you I like the lighter background - much easier for me to read the text. I always struggle reading light text on a dark background. hehe, even though I still go straight to the pictures so I can take a sticky!!
