Less Is More....Having a Go
I haven't had a go at the Less Is More Challenges since my dh passed in January.
It was a bit of a ritual for me. He'd know exactly why I wasn't paying him much attention early on a Saturday morning and would wait a bit more patiently than he ordinarily would. This is because he had been the only witness to my utter glee when I was showcased. He knew exactly how much it meant to me. He watched me grow from my inept first submission attempts to finally earning a compliment here and there. He truly was happy for me.
So here we go, I caught up with Mandi and Chrissie at 12 AM, USA time in Arizona, just after I'd posted about Simply Create Too, where I am on the design team. I decided not to wait until morning...how my life has changed.
I love this trio of southwestern clay pots from Stampmania. They specialize in images of the Southwestern and can be difficult to find. However during my adventure to a Stamp Convention, I found them and treated myself. Afterall, I am a Southwesterner some 15 years and I do love many aspects of desert living. To continue, the LIM Divas gave us a sketch which can be found here with all the deets. I have colored the pots with copics mainly and a Letraset or two....first time really playing with these...me likely. The sentiment stamped in Memento cocoa brown is from Our Daily Bread. I agonized a bit about the sentiment. I wanted the font to be perfect more than anything and then too, to be only one short line. My photo skills haven't improved much. And finally, white is, IMO, so tough to get right. Alas, I love a white card base. Well, I'm not tickled pink, but it's been a while, so I'm happy.
Hugs & Blessings,
