Happy Easter!


The Contessa graciously hosted a canvas challenge
at the Altered Pages group--I finished the background
the first day, but then let it sit. Just waiting to see
what would happen, not really sure what to do with it.

THEN along came the mailman with a package from Amy May,
with some pretty pink buttons and vintage lace and sweet
little paper roses. Like a little muse (from across the
ocean, no less!) in a box, delivered right to my door, it
inspired me to finish off the collage. The Distress Inks
(Tattered Rose and Antique Linen) I used also fit in
nicely with the Simon Says challenge.

Happy Easter, everyone!

Your canvas is just beautiful! I love it!

On the afghan colors, I just lined up all the colors I liked of the wool yarn available and saw which I liked together. Not an exact science. I figure I'm using the 'hip' colors because the company only chose 'hip' colors to sell. They don't have tons to choose from. Almost done with the yarn I have. Need to buy 2 more I think to finish it off. Do you think it needs tassels?

Beautiful! Isn't it amazing how sometimes a card or gift from a friend pushes or inspires you in the right direction? *smile*
