The Zen of Coloring

Happy Friday everyone... I hope that you had a terrific day and a great weekend planned!

I was in the mood for some coloring today and the Zen-like trance I can get into. So, after a pretty busy week, I settled in the craft grotto with my Dr. Ph. Martin's watercolors and painted this snowman from Sassy Cheryl's digitals. Yes, I did color this same image earlier in the week, but I like the little guy so much that I had to do it again. You know I have a penchant for snowpeople.

I made this card using "The Conductor" from Sassy Cheryl's for a little tyke's upcoming birthday.. and, obviously, as you can see, he's going to be three years old. He's a little whip and knows how many fingers that is!

Guess I'm in a green and turquoise phase these days -- sure looks that way!

So tomorrow, Saturday, is another obscure holiday you might not want to miss.. it's Get a Different Name Day. It's a day when you get to pick a name other than the one given to you at birth. If you don't like your name, just pick another. I think I'll be 'Shirley' tomorrow as people always tell me that I look like Shirley MacLaine (when she was younger, of course!). What name will you pick?  I can hardly wait to hear and from what I know about many of my followers there will be some doozies!!

'Til next time.. happy crafting and be safe in all you do!

Well Shirley, you've done a beautiful job as always. Your painting and coloring are just so lovely to see. Those images and very, very cute as well. Thank you, oh great enabler. I really didn't have enough digis.

A new name, hmmmmm .... since I have gone all these years with a very Italian looking face and a very Irish (Eileen Mae-Bridgit) name, I think I shall be Antoinette for the day. You, of course, may call me Toni.

hugs to you pal, Toni
