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

A Very Busy Monday

I have several things to post today.

This card is for
SNR Squigglefly...Color challenge, Orange, Brown and Aqua
Brown + Metal & Masculine

The circle is a metal button. The shoji screen and bonsai images are from
Squigglefly. They have lots of new images available right now. I also
rec'd word that more, lots more, are on the way.

The screen is printed on dark gold vellum.
I then glued it over this piece which is a picture of a rug from a magazine.
I like the faint pattern that shows thru.
I think it makes a masculine card. It seems that
mostly men have Bonsai as a hobby. This is something
that my son does. He has gotten quite good at it. He has quite a display
of bonsai plants now.
I have a token bit of orange on the dish and all is on an aqua base card.

This ATC is for Art Pieces...Birds
I love the work that they do on this challenge blog.
This doesn't compare but here it is anyway.

I love this image from MyGrafico. I would link you but their
site is down. It should be up and running again soon.

And, I think this is my favorite of the day.

This tag is for Tuesday Taggers...Retro Heaven.
The image is Deco Art by Gail at Sparkle N Sprinkle.
The image is stamped and embossed in silver. I used bright pink, orange,
aqua and a bit of black for color. I made the acrylic heart using
the technique, HERE. I even tried some doodling on this one. Where
ever it looked empty I either stamped or doodled something. I think
I could have used even more. I'm still learning to do this style which I love.

Denise at Stamping Vacation is making some changes.
Her followers spoke and she listened.
She will be doing a new version of everyone's favorite challenge....Pick 3.
You will have to stop in to see the details.
Denise will also be giving a progressive prize. Uhmmm, that sounds interesting.
And, look who she showcased on her brand new challenge....modest me.
Thank you Denise.
