Love is in the air

Love is in the air everywhere I look around, love is in the air every sight and every sound, and I don't know if I'm being foolish, don't know if I'm being wise. But it's something that I must believe in, and it's there when I look in your eyes . . . . my entry for the whimsical, quirky, humorous challenge at Three Muses this week. The smiling moon and airmail stamp images from Graphics Fairy - linking to Brag Monday.

A is for Apple

When I think of summer - I think of fruit, although you can find apples and most fruit all year round these days. I simply love that fresh smell in an apple orchard early in the morning in summer. My entry for Theme Thursday's summer challenge. This is also the second alphabet flash card, you can find the other one here - I am planning to do a whole set.

Owl's serenade

I thought the Three Muses challenge this week was birds, and when I checked just now, it says exotic bird, well this is my entry for the challenge and I do think owls are very special birds, which makes them exotix, right? :-)

Leopard spots and roses

When I saw the pink and brown challenge over at Theme Thursday, my first thought was hot chocolate and fluffy pink marshmallows- yum!!! I love the rich chocolate brown script of this card and I thought it pairs so well with the dusky pink roses - I decided on the leopard spots as a background for that touch of whimsy.
