Letting Paint Flow

This week has seen me working with paint and some of my card stock. It's happened in bit and pieces over a few days. A snatch here while the kids are sleeping, a quick swirl after I dropped the veggies in the pot and a bit of cutting and gluing after the kids were in bed one night and the man of the house was otherwise occupied. I'm all done now. But it has fanned a spark that makes me want to pull out the paints a whole lot more - for me. It's been too long since I have done any serious painting.

Anyway, someone I know has a birthday coming up, so here is what she will be getting atop her pressie. A simple note card, but I love it. I may add a little text in black ink in the centre down near the bottom yet. What do you think? Should I leave it as is? Or add some writing?

This afternoon there was a wee bit of stitchery going on. I was playing with this...

It's a little sneak peek. And I will tell you more about it next week - with some more photos.
Well, I am aiming to have an early night tonight. Too many of my nights for the past week or so have been 11:30pm or later. And the kids haven't exactly been sleeping in. So I'll say "Bonne Nuit" and come back for some creative inspiration tomorrow.

Linking up with some of the unreal places in the side bar!


  1. I love the colours you have used in that card..they are blended beautifully :) I think some writing would finish it nicely.

    I've been making a fair few similar crochet flowers for a friend.
