I received a wonderful package in the mail recently. It was a blog hop prize from Jennifer Grace. I used it make a couple of spring cards! She even has another give-away going on now. Click on this link to check it out. I also made some Valentine's cards.
I was inspired to make them by an assignment in the "Studying under the Masters" online class I'm taking. Matisse is the first artist, and I learned how he liked to combine at least three patterns in many of his works, so I decided to the same in a batch of cards! I'm not sure why I've been bitten by the card-making bug this year, but I have.
And speaking of blog friends . . .
I had the tremendous good fortune to be visited by Alison of Life in the Slow Lane. We had phenomenal weather and a wonderful time together. She wrote this nice post about our visit. Alison and I met last year in Spain (where she lives), and we picked up just where we left off - chatting the morning away. It was great to see her!
Last, but certainly not least, if you like Stacey's blog "Havoc and Mayhem," be sure to go visit her (here's a link). And if you have been a follower of hers, please check your reader to see if she's in there. Apparently many readers mysteriously dropped her blog. I know mine did, and I missed several weeks of her acerbic, hilarious writing. Don't let that happen to you!
