Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

I'm Seeing Red

Red has been the color of choice lately. Here is another small dose of it.
This time for Lori's Color Challenge at Cardmaker.
Our colors are Red, Black and Green.

I really had a hard time coming up with something for this one.
Then I ran across my tiny Oriental girl that I'd made some time ago.
Then I remembered that I had a stamp with Ginko leaves. A theme
is finally presenting itself. So here is the finished card.
Simple but I like it.

Several that entered Lori's challenge made Christmas cards. You know,
it's just too early to think Christmas. I had joined in a Christmas
Card Challenge at SNR Card Universe. I found that I was making
cards for the challenge and not for my friends and family. I lacked
the needed holiday spirit for inspiration.
I don't send so many cards out that I can't make a custom card
for them. So, I dropped out. Although, they
did publish two of my cards in their monthly magazine. That was pretty nice.

Speaking of SNR my friend Stef's SNR Squigglefly Color Challenge #2 is up.
There are some beautiful colors to work with this week. AND, NO RED.

MyGrafico is now back online

MyGrafico's Blog Hop will definitely be on Monday, August 31. You can start your
