I found this site a long time ago but now have become hooked. Annsdoodles. She, well, she doodles. It is a lot more than that though. She has such an imagination and such talent. I have bought several of her cards. I really want to study her techniques. She has been very helpful in giving me tips on products. I will show some of my efforts. Not to be compared to hers.
I am making generic cards at the moment. The one above may be Birthday? I like the next one better. I will put some sparkle on the bees wings I think.
Both of those are based on ideas by Annsdoodles. I must come up with original ideas but meanwhile I need practice.
This one is more original although as it came from my sketchbook, it may be someone else's idea. I did not copy it though so in a way it is original.
The next two are Valentines, sort of. I made one for Reina to send later
If all goes well, maybe I can make Christmas cards for next year.
This next one I just sent to my cousin Robin in England. Robin is dying, he may have a week or two at most. I made this to send him love. I hope that he gets it in time.
Then there is this little girl, this one is unfinished. I am not sure where I want to go with it yet.
This is the last one for now
That's it for now. I have lots of improving to do. They don't look so good when I go back and look at them again. Certainly not compared to Ann's. Ah well, it is fun fun for now. I still have that pile of quilts sitting there that needs attention soon.

I think these may be finished now.

This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
