We are once again sponsoring the challenge over at Quirky Crafts and this week the challenge is to create a twisted easel card and/or Mother's Day gift.  You still have time to enter and you will want to check out the spectacular projects from the QT team here.

 Suzi  has created this wonderful card using Audrey's Picnic.  
Don't you just love those handmade flowers and pretty color pallet?

Collette has created this delightful card using Bunny Egg.  Nice vibrant colors (love that orange) and added texture to polka dots on bow make this card a real treat!

Ok, indulge me a minute. This image is one of artistic images that probably won't sell but, that' ok. I drew it for me. I call it "Thoughts" because it represents how most of my thoughts are loving and kind but, once in awhile. "oh my!" My kids, or something will just set me off and I just lose it. These are the swirls. I could have made them a little crazier but, I didn't want it to be too nuts. Anyway, that's the thought process behind this image. There's probably some peri-menopausal issues behind my madness but, we won't discuss that. LOL!
This was my mood at 4am this morning and thank you so much for listening to me ramble. :D
