New Day

"Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense. This day is all that is good and fair. It is too dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on yesterdays."  Ralph Waldo Emerson

Looking forward to another Sky Watch Friday with bloggers from all over the world sharing their view of the horizon.  My view today is of big river country tucked under the shade of a huge old tree on a bright summer day.

And every day is a happy day when it includes a little surprise in the mail.
A delightful journal arrived this week from A Bouquet of Dreams where you will find lots of sweet inspiration and and one that I am sending out as a special surprise to celebrate the change of seasons, using Tattered Angels products and lots of glimmer mist.
Cape Cod Rambling Rose is hosting a creative challenge with this cute little image, just know there will be some fabulous things being posted soon.

Wishes & Aspirations

“Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations” Louisa May Alcott

Lots of rain about this week, I had to dip into some of our recent holiday photos to find a pretty view to share. Sky Watch Friday is 100s of bloggers from all over showing off their own view of the sky.

A little something I am working on for Tattered Angels and to remind us that sometimes wishes really do come true.

Meaningful Days

"A day passes, another day arrives.
The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend or a meaningful day."
Dalai Lama

Sky Watch Friday is the best kind of day full of views of the sky from all over the world.

My card making friends often ask for ideas on how to make nice ‘guy’ cards, aside from the usual browns and cars and golf how can you make some thing masculine.
This is a card I am making for a sweet friend on the theme of journey to love. A combination of Tattered Angels Compass & Timeless Romance screens and stamps on their embossed postcard chip tile and tinted in shades of Waterslide. To make things just a bit more meaningful, the addition of postage stamps from special places or tickets from events is just the perfect touch. Wishing everyone a happy Valentines Day.

Heartfelt Days

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen, nor touched ... but are felt in the heart." Helen Keller

Sky Watch Friday is a blog party like no other with hundreds of views of the sky from all over the world.  Another pretty but plain blue sky kind of day on the beach.

Lately it seems like time and special friends pass by in fleeting flurry, off to another funeral next week and remembering friends lost in the Station Night Club fire. Card created from Tattered Angels nature tile, tinted in green clover with a flirty kiss from Tutti Frutti.
