This Week’s Envelope Art…

I was watching TV and behind the guy that was talking there was some kind of blurry background. This bottle is what I saw in those shapes. Do you see images in random textures or patterns? I do all the time.

Many Thanks

When I say many thanks, here, I mean two things. First of all I needed to thank many people, and secondly, I made many cards. I had some fun with my Tombow dual brush markers and you can see by the marks on my desk pad that I made a bunch of cards. I made 30 all alike, then the one at the bottom, separately.

The 30 cards were for 30 amazing people who showed up on a hot Sunday morning to do yard work for my Dad who lives next door. He and I had been caring for my mom, and he had been unable to keep up with the yard. The people brought chain saws, a tractor, loppers, a four wheeler to haul a trailer, clippers, shovels, and other tools. The amount of work that they accomplished was phenomenal. Words cannot really express how much what they did was appreciated.

The lower card was made for a special friend of mine in appreciation for some lovely gifts. This is a new friend who I have not even yet met in person! We became friends due to God-arranged unique circumstances. Thanks to texting, we are getting to know each other and look forward to meeting face to face in November.

This was so much fun to make! I first taped off the stripes by using blue masking tape which I had cut into 1/3-width strips. Then I painted each section with Tombow Dual Brush pens. After removing the tape, I just added the final touches.
