Created for Crowabout group in Flickr, I thought the heart Nancy gave us was so cute and I just knew I had to create a little house out of it! I painted the sky and grass first then glued the images down and shaded the background with colored chalk and pencils. The original shows a blue hue behind the tree branches that you don't see here, and bright pink flowers going up the vine on the house. For some reason the paint pens don't show up on the scans well...well!! I hope you enjoy it.
Speaking of cats, Pearl is head butting me and laying in front of the keyboard, keeping at least one paw on my wrist with claws intermittently digging into my wrist, just to let me know she is here. I put her down, she jumps back up.
I hope this was not a rumor, but I heard the sun is supposed to come out today! I have pansies to plant! Every year I say I'm not going to plant pansies because when the harsh weather comes they seem to dissolve into the dirt. Of course I always plant them anyhow. Last year Molly and I embarked on an experiment. We planted lots of pansies in the yard and decided we would not pull them up when they got too hot and died back in the summer. We let them go to seed hoping that they would come back! So we went and bought more the other day and we are hoping to start seeing some of the old ones popping up..so far nothing yet.
Well, Pearl says it's time to go! Hope you all enjoy your day!
