Happy Nurse's Day to my favorite nurse

 Here is a simple card that I made to honor nurses.  The image is a pre-colored image from Paper Shelter and the sentiment and patterned paper are from TLC, Create.

I'll bee there for you.

 I found another image that I had printed and just hadn't colored (which is now retired)....so sad. I feel that bees are so important so that they continue to pollinate our flowers and our circle continues. I added Spectrum Noir to the wings.

Nuts for You

 Well I'm trying to get my Christmas cards done for the month which is getting harder and harder at this time of year when I am thinking of flowers instead of snow.  I have images that I have sitting that I have been wanting to color so I have been trying to get them done. And this one just makes me smile with this cutie. Another Mo Manning image and it reminds me of my son since we have so many squirrels in our yard.

Gardeners

Well I am not a gardener. My Dad was a potato farmer; however, I have no desire to have a garden, heck I can't even keep plants alive. The cat I have now I don't think would bother a plant, since she doesn't go after flower bouquets like my male cat did. She went and got a hair cut today so she had enough drama. I went out to get some groceries the other night and when I came home....my garage door wouldn't open. Today I had a repair person out and as my Dad predicted "my spring was out." Needless to say $600 later I can get my car in the garage and we missed garbage day. So obviously I did some coloring to try to help my stress and got this new image from Twistoon and a sentiment from TLC, Create

A mother's love is like sunshine

Wow this is amazing I actually have been using my Copics and coloring again. I was going through a rough patch of not wanting to lift a marker for quite a long time. I actually had these Mo Manning images printed, but finally took the time to color them. This cutie with the large sunflower makes me smile.
