Color Inspiration #57


This might be a little silly, but I colored the little birdie using the colors from Kristian Werner's Color Inspiration #57. I am not sure if this qualifies, but I decided to post it anyway. =)

This card is also for Hero Arts' month-long theme of Friendship & Valentine's challenge. Please check here for the details for the new challenge format and join the fun!

Did you notice that I gave her some extra eyelashes? =)

I spent the weekend looking for my mojo... He was either hiding or hibernating... I got almost nothing done over the weekend. I wasn't even happy about the coloring that I did... I wasn't in a super good mood either, so... All in all a not so good weekend until Sunday night.

Hubby gave me an hour-long oil massage late Sunday night and that really helped. It even smoothed my mood... =) I was fine on Monday and was able to make some cards! LOVE that sweet husband of mine!! Big mmmmwah to you my sweetie! =)


Thanks for stopping by!

We would never know your mojo was missing... everything you do is wonderful...but I know what you mean... I've had times like that when nothing seemed to work. I sure wish my husband gave good massages. I think he squeezes too hard so that I'll tell him to stop. LOL!
