Hi everyone. Hope you had a wonderful weekend. We got cold temperatures this weekend, not quite frost weather but this morning it was 39 degrees F (like 3-4 degrees C). I guess it is the middle of of October and time to get chilly, but just a couple of days ago it was like a hot summer day.
Today I had an afternoon of art. One of the pieces I was able to make is this tag which I want to share over at Tag Tuesday and their challenge buntings/flags.
I started by partially covering a tag with some music paper. Then I rubbed a bit of ink over it. I added some painted cardboard as well the TH found relative and some flower stickers. I also added a bit of cloth trim and some little gemstones.
I was also able to make a page to join Linda's challenge at Art Journal Journey, Creature Comforts, and my creatures are having a dance party.
I used bit of black ink on the page and then added these fun stickers that I found in the Halloween section at Hobby Lobby awhile back. I drew the disco ball and colored it with silver glitter glue and also added a few little metal stars.
So yesterday I went to visit and celebrate my Mom's 89th birthday. Look at this fun balloon I found for her.
This balloon was about 2 feet tall and I knew Mom would love it. Her dad used to raise beagles so she named this one Sally as it was the last dog her dad had. (I actually remember Sally when from when I was a young child.) When I walked into her apartment building there were a lot of woman in the lobby waiting for lunch to begin and this balloon caused quite a stir. I think many of them hoped I was delivering it for them.
She had a good birthday celebration and my brother showed up too so it was nice for Mom to have both of her kids (and one of her grandkids) there.
And here's the birthday girl. She'll tell you she's 29 again.
And since my brother showed up I got distracted and forget to get a group photo.
Thanks for stopping by to visit.
