Brag Monday

Karen from the Graphics Fairy is hosting this lovely day. A day where we can share what we have created with her generous gifts of beautiful images.

brag monday fiveI have been a fan of Karen's work for a long time now. I love working with graphics, and I have wanted to participate in her Brag Monday. I am forever creating gifts, cards and treasures with her lovely images. I enjoy making cards, so I thought I would share a card I made using Karen's birds and penmanship graphics.

Oh Karen, your cards are indeed a beautiful sight. I still hold my beautiful Paris card with such regard....I will always treasure it. Hey, do you want to see some of my art? Come on over and go to my side bar and go to either the little fairy door that takes you to my blog, Nocturne, or to Nowhere. I just posted yesterday a drawing that I did of two rats and an gnome. I haven't drawn in years, but the Dutchess has inspired me to draw again. She did the awesome little drawing of the bear on the previous post. Love you! Anita

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

Oh my goodness this is so beautiful I love birds and their nest. Always put one in The CHRISTmas tree each year....m

Karen, this card is exquisite. All of the parts work together to create a masterpiece. It will surely touch the soul of the recipient.

And, your mosaic photos are gorgeous. I wish I could come share a cup of tea and cookie with you. I can imagine the look of contentment on your face.♥

Hi KAREN,
Your new cards are so nice. I did go to the other Karen's and you are right! I used up a LOT of printer ink at her site.
I got some more papers from E'Bay a few days ago. Like I said in my newest post, I get all these papers and then I don't want to cut them up or glue them, which can be a problem when that is what I bought them for.

Blessings to you,
