Marie Antoinette, "Let them eat cake!"

In all fairness to Marie, I read when researching hair, clothes etc. for this image, that she was only 10 years old when she said this. I think maybe she got a bad rap. :(
I hope you like this image, it was so much fun to draw. Have a wonderful evening.

Challenge #6~Circles

Good morning everyone! I hope that your week started off well! I am sitting here typing this up as the Haverty (furniture store) people bring in stuff for the kids bedrooms. What a mess....this is their second time out here and now they will need to come a 3rd time!!! First it was something with my daughters headboard (so they couldn't bring that out), then they brought us the wrong bunk beds for my son and NOW there was something wrong with the "right" bunk beds railings so they need to come out a 3rd frustrating!!!

But anyway...your not here to listen to me whine right?! But it sure is nice to vent a bit!!

I will announce the winner of challenge #5 and the top three tomorrow. I just have not been able to get through all the entries to get a top 3 but I promise to have it up tomorrow!!!

That should be easy enough right??? I just want to see LOTS of circles all over your wonderful projects!!!

DT's Inspiration:

Christy D.:
Talk about amazing scrapbook layout using two of Tracey's new images. I just love those border pieces!!!

This looks as delicate as those flowers are! The pretty pastel color, the doily, and circle cut out.....soooooooooo pretty! 

I just love easel cards and I love them even more in the shap of a circle. This is really the cutest card!!! Cute colors, cute buttons....just cute!!

Hmmm....Michelle.....are you still in winter mode? I certainly hope not since we are quickly approaching summer!!! LOL! I just love those embellishments and all those circles!!!

Someone was enjoying her day in the sun. She was doing this in her garden using a mixed medium technique. What a stunning work of art. Did you notice the image and the two coloring is amazing!!!

This is a great end-of-year card for a school student! So cute and again....ton's of circles! I really like that arrow!!! Too cute!!!

My Mother's Day gift.

Look at what I received for Mother's day yesterday from my 16 year-old DD Kalie. A handmade card and 6 decorated sketching pencils. It's the best gift anyone's ever given me. I just love it. I'm all too aware that I won't be getting many more handmade gifts from my girls, so I especially cherish this one. All you mommy's of little ones who received handmade gifts, take good care of those gifts because all too soon you'll start getting flowers and CD's. Which is great, but nothing in as special as the cards written is crayons and the paper flowers. Happy one day late Mother's Day!

Happy "Freebie for our Fabulous Followers" Day!!!!

Don't forget to become a follower so you don't miss a single freebie! Have a super day!
