The challenge on Arty Girlz this week was to use clip art on a card, I have never used clip art before, thought of it as cheating a bit somehow - I know, I can be irrational sometimes. I downloaded this image of turtles and found the perfect sentiment in an inkadinkadoo dollar stamp to set it off. I shadowed around the turtles a little, and added a little shading to the shells, otherwise what you see is a printed image. It's a very simple straightforward little card, but hey, sometimes simple is best!
Sunday is my day to 'phone home' and I always look forward to hearing my kids voices and the news. My daughter in law Annabel made me smile - I sent Kiki a postcard of a little girl sitting on a deckchair on the beach saying "Miss You". Well, the postcard arrived and led to a looong discussion with my little granddaughter peering at the photo "Where are her Mummy and Daddy, is she there all alone?................." "Why is she wearing those glasses, do her eyes hurt?"................."Is she happy mummy?'.............................. "Has she got a dog mummy?"
She now has her photo of her new best friend, the happy little girl with no mummy and daddy or a dog, by her bed. Bless her.
