Its been quite a year to date one way or another.  In some ways too much has happened.  Trip to NZ, goodbye to Dad - never expected this - flare ups just to name a couple of things so there has not been much creating happening in this neck of the woods.  Here's a few things hopefully I'll get back into it shortly.

Two different envelope cards.

 Canvas ordered for a birthday present.

Birthday card for a 2nd birthday party for a smart pup friends dog.

Playing in my journal 2015 January

Various playing pages:

The background started out as a way to use
up paint & stencil that I was using for another
project an turned into this.  Had a lot of fun
playing on this page.

Left over paint from a few projects created
this background and I just came across
this quote one day and wanted to use it.
