Easter Card

G'day to my friends and followers in blogland. This is my first post for the year of 2012 and I am well rested after veg'n out for the last 2 months. I've done nothing exciting in that time that I could say is worth typing about. Enjoyed a huge Christmas with family, read books and slept a lot.
After much encouragement from some of my friends, I finally kicked myself in the butt to get myself out of my lack of mojo, inspiration and self indulgent habits. I'm happy now to enter back into my world of cyber friends and share some more digital images with you this year.

To entice my mojo into creative mode I thought I'd try making some handmade Fimo carrots. Not to difficult and it only took me 2 hours to hand sculpt the carrots. They looked good enough to eat with their orange bottoms and green tops...well that was before I cooked them to set the Fimo. It should have only taken 10 minutes but somehow I got sidetracked and they were in there for about 20mins. *Sad Face* as I dare to show you what happened.
*Laughs* not much different than my real cooking attempts. Oh well, time to apply what I always preach to my student; There are NO mistakes only creative challenges! A couple of coats of white gesso and some paint and nobody would ever know. *Smiles*. See the end results of the carrots in the Easter cards I made below.

Easter Card (The Easter collection digital set is available for free for the month of February. You can pick it up by joining my group at Crafters Digital Arts Center. Please pop in and say hello we'd love to get to know you better.)

Inside of the Easter Card. I keep it simple letting the beautiful words from Helen Steiner Rice's 'An Easter Prayer' pass on a special message to a few of my special online friends. The sentiment is just one of 10 that will be available on my new word art sheet 'Easter 2'. So keep your eye out for the upcoming word art sheet appearing in my digital store.

If I'm going to make one, I might as well make 8 *Laughs*.

Thank you for stopping by and I'm looking forward to catching up with your sites and to check out what you've been up to.
