You are invited to share with me the Joy there is in creating Art. I mean the "I can do it" and "it's fun" and "it's beautiful" kind of art, whether it is "museum quality" or not. Here you will find some of what I like to do and, I hope, share some of your joy, too.

Welcome to my blog, Rae Ann.

Give Thanks

This is a very popular theme right now so I will be entering it in a number of challenges.  Check the list below and visit these sites for all the awesome entries.

This cute pilgrim came from the Cricut 3 Birds on Parade cartridge.  I got the little elements from 4 others - a benefit of having multiple cartridges.  The leaves and pumpkin came from Everyday Paper Dolls; the fruit by the pumpkin came from Paper Doll Dress Up; the banner for 'Give Thanks' came from the Phrases cartridge; and the swirls came from Picturesque.  I added glitter to the leaves and swirls which allows the pilgrim and fruit to stand out by contrast.  Those birds make me smile.  The little pieces were a great use for scraps and the background piece is from a pad of autumn papers I forgot I had.  Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
