Piece of Cake!

I made this invitation for a bridal shower. I like to make the invitations match the person they are for. The bride to be is a cosmopolitan kinda girl so I thought this fit well. Let me know what you think.

IF- Horizon

So..... here is my illustration for this weeks Illustration Friday Word-O-the-Week "horizon". This is an illo. I did for my daughter's school for a postcard exhibit---thing. The scene is of a girl set in the time of the St. Louis World's Fair (1904), thus the ice cream. The horizon behind her is what the Mississippi and the Eads bridge looked like at that time. Okay, all that is to say. I hope you like it and Merry Christmas!!!

IF- Backwards

Poor little snow guy has a cold. The force of his sneezes sends him backwards. I painted snowflakes coming from his mouth when he sneezed but the scanner didn't pick them up. You all are creative, so just imagine they are there. Anyways, I thought a snowman with a cold was kinda cute.

IF- Excess

Yes, you guessed it.. I'm going for "Excessive Cuteness". We've got a curly haired girl, polk-a-dots, a huge balloon, and a black and white dog. It doesn't get more cuter than that folks!

The Rug

Okay, so it has been a while since I posted but I wanted you all to see what I've been up to. I made this rug for a friend of mine. It is a canvas floor cloth. I had so much fun making this! I'll post the other projects I've been working on a little bit later. They are Christmas presents, so I have to wait till they are given. I don't spoil the surprise. Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving. Feel free to post what you are thankful for, and any comments you have on the rug. Gobble Gobble!

Okay, so I'm mildly obsessed with Jane Austen at the moment, and this is what came to mind with the topic "Hats". All Mr. Darcy's, and others of course, are invited to comment.

IF- Grow

To grow in love is to blossom as friends.
This illo. is called crosspollination. So many puns, so little time. Comment away!

Betty Mae had a great time with her new friend Cleo, but what were all the other creatures staring at?

For my illustration of "Open" I painted a woman who is floating free, not bound by her clothing, and not restricted by time. She is "Open".

Can't we all just gather flowers today?

Don't you just have those days? Those days when just meandering around town, walking in a park, or just doing a lot of nothing sounds good? .......Yeah! Me too. This illustration is about the craving for one of those days. The only problem with those days is that usually by around 11am, or so, I feel lazy, and not in a good way. I look back at what I've done, think about all the times I wish I had more time to finish things, and am rather disgusted at the fact that I just wasted a perfectly viable morning for getting things done. So... after such a relaxing, doing nothing sort of morning, I spend the rest of the day feeling guilty and rushing around making up for those lost hours. Perhaps I should have drawn this girl dancing around madly trying finish about ten projects. No... then I'd just say, "This is a typical day but ...don't you just have those days? Those days when just meandering around town, walking in a park, or just doing a lot of nothing sounds good?" And it would start the whole discussion up again thus wasting your precious blog reading time. Sorry about that!

IF- Juggle

Dotty loved juggling with butterflies. She just wished she could do it more than once.

I've always been a nature freak, so here's an illustration I made for the Illustration Friday word -o-the week "wedding". This girl is wedding a tree. I guess you could call her a "tree hugger!" ( and I've got plenty more bad jokes were that came from)

IF- Momentum

This is an illustration I did for my illustration critique group. We had to illustrate "Bus". My husband thought it would be funny to post this for "momentum".
