The Three Muses Challenge - Hot, Hot, Hot!

All my own work except for the face which is from the late Suzee Que at Flickr.  The words come from the title of a Cole Porter song from "Kiss Me Kate".  If you have seen the musical on film you will remember the amazing dance routine by Ann Miller to this song - and the very clever lyrics.  Showing my age!!

Happy St Valentine's Day to all our blogger friends!

Sunday Postcard Art - Hearts

Sorry, I am one of those people who can't take St Valentine's day seriously.  I apologize for making a joke about it!  If love is blind the lingerie boutiques wouldn't be doing any business!!  Original image from collage sheets, greatly altered.  She was chosen for her very attractive "bloomers" - great lingerie you must admit.  Bird and background by Dawn van der Stoep at Createwing Designs.

Three Muses Challenge - Use a quote!

I guess this is another way of saying "square peg in a round hole".  I found the quote somewhere (not sure where) and it spoke to me.  I decided to illustrate it with a bit of silliness.  I have had the screaming woman in my stash for a very long time.  I think it was a freebie from Stockxchange.  Other elements are by Fiddlette aka Christine Honsinger.
