HANDS






The challenge this week at Inspiration Avenue is "HANDS",  hosted by Shelly (Shel's Pics) and co-host, her mother Loretta. My submission for the challenge this week is this card I made.

Thank you for stopping in for the  IA Challenge  results this week. Be sure to roll over the title of this post to see more creations on "HANDS".

I also managed to make the challenge for Jenn's ARTIST PLAYROOM  Challenge this week. She challenged us to create something inspired by food. Since I am on a diet, I am trying not to think about food, and this is pretty much my attitude when I don't get my chocolate!


                "PHOOEY to SUGAR and SPICE, some days it' hard to be NICE"


I have been on a postcard roll lately so I made this postcard as my submission for Jenn's challenge this week.

Thanks for stopping by to view both my weekly challenges!
Feel free to join in the fun each week with Inspiration Avenue and the Artist Playroom!

  1. Your hand is amazing; it looks like a henna design except in brilliant colors. Also like your words. Good work!

  9. I confess I've been offline all week, so didn't see your lovely comment until just a few minutes ago. I will figure out a way to get my mailing address to you, since my e-mail is not working at the moment.

    I am so impressed wit that card, and that hand is amazing. I can't believe all the fussy cuts you had to make to get that hand like it is. It is truly beyond beautiful.

    And again, thanks for whatever or wherever I have mail. One of the reasons I didn't join the IA postcard swap was because I don't have a way to leave my e-mail for people which would lead to my snail mail.

  10. Love that gorgeous hand, so bright and pretty. Those words are beautiful but my favourite is the Phooey. I get the same when I don't have chocolate.
