Sorry!  I couldn't resist having some "ouch" moments.  My scrawny owl is my own work.

Sunday Postcard - Magic

Well, as a long-time vegetarian, I apologize for this card from my alter-ego, Ozstuff, who probably thinks that the idea of a magician eating his rabbit is amusing.  The rabbit/hare (re-dressed in red) is by Irene Alexeeva of Scraporchard and the background is by Tangie Baxter at Scrapbookgraphics.  Everything else by me!

The Three Muses Challenge - Magic Carpet Ride

I think we all take off on flights of fancy once in a while to escape the humdrum of everyday life.  I have used a collection of background papers by Vera Lim for the background (layered over newspaper) and the "buildings" and the carpet.  The dreamer is by me except for the face which is a freebie from Ali Mayes at Flickr and the Blog.  Thanks Ali!!

Monday Mixed Media - Something Blue

The words come from the old song (famously recorded by Ella Fitzgerald) "Am I Blue?"  The face is from a freebie (altered) from Outsider Artists.  The blue patterned background paper is by Berna Datema at Scrapbookgraphics and the fabric, stitched piece is by Ztampf.

Sunday Postcard - Babies

I apologize in advance to all those men who do not fit the profile above.  In case anyone doesn't know what a "man cold" is, it is the cold that men get but women never do.  Men suffer so much more. (Oh puhleeze).
The image, altered is from Deadfred at Flickr and the face is from a collage sheet by Moonlight Journey.  Background paper by Fiddlette at Scrapartist.

Art Creations Friday - Gladys, A Rose by any Other Name

Thanks to the ladies at Art Creations Friday for the lovely rosy background.  I have used it in my background (layered with a canvas background) and also in the gown Gladys is wearing.  The face is by me.

Theme Thursday - Animals

Believe it or not, this whole piece was cut from one textured background (thanks to Paree Erica's Textures at Flickr).  The girl's face was painted by me and the lion crudely copied from a Googled clipart.
