Reality has limits but our imagination does not, so let it run free and your creativity will flourish.
My imagination helps me create unique work as I strive to produce beautiful things and grow in capability, experience and confidence. My goal as I travel this journey of creativity, is to share my work and inspire others so that they themselves, may create something distinct and original too.

This first card is by Dena Concienne; if you remember, she is the designer of the CASE study card from yesterday's post. I was lucky enough to receive one of Dena's cards as a thank you when I was quite a newbie to blogland and long before I had even started my own blog. If you managed to pop over to see her card yesterday and took a look around her archives, you will have noticed just how talented Dena is. Her colouring is truly lovely and she has a wonderful eye for colour and design. Well enough of the idolising, here is the lovely card I received. Didn't it travel well!! (Dena is from the USA).
Isn't that image just the cutest. If I was sat on a swing with my dogs about me Millie would be behind me chasing it back and forth and Gypsy would be trying to get on my lap or just yapping at me to get my attention!
Ok, on to the second lovely card. I received it just two days ago and boy did it cheer me up when it came through the letterbox! This one is by our Sue (Bearhouse), isn't it just fabulous.
Another stunning image and so softly coloured too. I adore the embossed frame on this card, it is so delicate but very dramatic and gives the card that bit of something special, don't you think?
Thank you so much to both of you for these beautiful cards, I will treasure them both. They have pride of place in my craftroom, sharing their own board on the wall above my sewing machine!!
Before I go today I would just like to answer a few queries about my great-nephew, baby Lee. I haven't received any news for a couple of days, but that is good. My sister-in-law promised me that no news was to be taken exactly as the saying goes, good news. She would only call me if he took a turn for the worst. Other than that we would keep up to date weekly, so the little fella must be quite strong and fighting hard, bless him. She, my brother and their daughter were blown away by the amount of queries about Lee and have expressed their profound gratitude for all the thoughts and prayers sent his way. From me too, I thank you very, very much.
For tomorrow I am going to try to finish a card for the boys, but then again, it may end up being a get well soon card as I actually need both in the next couple of days ......... I wonder who (or to be grammatically correct, which) will win? Hey, who knows maybe I 'll have a fab crafting afternoon and do two cards; Jake (my grandson) is only with me till approx 2.30pm. Yea and pigs might fly................. keep looking up in the sky you just never know ........ LOL!!
Well, I hope you all have a good day, maybe even a bright and sunny day; all we can do is hope. Take care everyone and again, thank you very much for your fabulous words of praise for yesterdays card, they were most gratefully received.
Bye for now. Linda xx
