Index Card a Day (ICAD 2013)

Well, I've decided to try my hand at hands on art once more--paper, paint, glue and Scizzors.  This is a little adventure, nothing too intimidating--just 3 x 5 index cards.  The project--it's not a swap--is at the Daisy Yellow blog, here.
I've done all six so far, but only scanned five.

Remember...I told you I cannot draw...

TextureTuesday--Healing prayers

This week we have been asked to post healing wishes, thoughts and prayers for Kim's husband, who is indergoing cancer treatment.  I went searching for healing words and couldn't decide from these two, so made both--can't hurt...

Here is the message and link to Kim's Facebook page.

Dear Texture Tuesday friends,
I'm sure you know that Kim's husband is currently undergoing chemotherapy for Leukemia in Winnepeg. I would like for us TT followers to do something special for Kim and John this week. If you are able, could you create a Texture Tuesday image with the theme of HEALING for Kim and John, and post it on her Facebook page at this Tuesday? I would love to see a big show of support and love for them.
Thank you,
Joyelle Brandt, Texture Tuesday fan

The first is an image found on Google, with textures Annabelle, 3003-2 and Carol.

 and the second is my own photo, with textures Isobel and Hopefilled.
