Today is Pink Saturday, and Bev from How Sweet The Sound is hosting this pink day.  Today I am letting you now how Happy...

Not since I fell in love with framing years ago, have I been so delighted.

Peony PerfectionI just got back some lovely photographs from my new printer, printed on a Pearl photo paper by Fiji.

Happy as a bird in a nest
The paper is sooooo iredescent, and it looks so wonderful with my peony photograph.  Thanks to my friend Joyce who is an amazing photographer, I found Autumn Color.

Peony PerfectionOh I was so happy, and then I got an e-mail from Gay who has this lovely place called, I dreamed I saw...She wrote a post called Words and Images.

If you click on the image you can see what it looks like in fabric

She let me know that she featured my French script fabrics!    I call this fabric above, Anita's Inspiration.  Anita from Castles Crowns and Cottages inspired this fabric design.  I took my French script from 1609 on parchment and created fabric.  Anita gave me tips on how other's design script and it was her idea to add the birds.  So, I found  an Antique book which had those birds on the cover.

What a happy day!

Speaking of Happy Days, Kelee from Kadilacshak, a special Pink Saturday Lady has a wonderful announcement.  So please stop by and visit Kelee today.

Happy Pink Saturday Karen Sweetie...
Another beautiful share with such beautiful flare. I love to see you create.

The peony framed pictue is exquisite. I could smell them through the frame. What a beautiful gift from God. Smell, color and even texture. Isn't he fabulous with his paintbrush?

I am so thrilled that Anita suggested the little birds to the French writing. It is just the right touch, just perfect.

Karen I hope you have a beautiful day, and find many more creations along the way. You are truly such a joy to me. Both my heart and eyes.

Many hugs sweetie and so much love, Sherry
