These vines are growing in our flower bed by our patio. We didn't plant them. Our neighbor up the street about half a mile away has them growing around their mail box. We think the birds must have brought the seeds to us--any way, we are happy and our hummingbirds are too.

This is one of the pictures I used to draw Diane's Digital Design #254 - "Hummingbird Vines":

Blessings to you & yours until next time,

Diane's Digital Design #253 is "Jalen's Roses". When he was about 2 years old, he and I planted his rose bush. We've since moved, but his rose bush came to our new home too. Occasionally when Wayne is riding his mule around our house, he brings me in one from Jalen's rose bush or a flower from one of the other bushes in our flower bed. He knows I'd rather have these flowers more than any he'd get at a florist!

This is the watercolor I did of "Jalen's Roses" today--enjoy [PS. It's for sale!]

God's blessings to you and your family today and every day.

digi removed.

Since football season has started, I thought you might need a 'cheerleader' digi. Above is the 'generic' Diane's Digital Design #252 - "School Cheerleader". If you'd like, you can add your school's Letter on the front of her sweater.

Here is DDD #252 with our school's letter. And, if your school's name happens to begin with an "S" you are in luck!!! You can just copy ours! Easy Peasy!

Support your children [or Grands] and their schools! Hope you enjoy this free digi. Please drop by again next Wednesday or when you can!

Blessings to you and yours,

DDD #249 - "PLUMERIA" & DT Call for Simply Create Too


I drew Diane's Digital Design #249 - "PLUMERIA" last week. We took lots of photos on our last [and every] trip to Hawaii. I combined several photos to make this digi.

Recently, I found The Frugal Crafter on YouTube and especially like her [Lindsay] watercolor techniques. I also love to do watercolors with Derwent Inktense watercolors, and she does lots of hers with Derwent too. Needless to say, I am in my 'water color painting phase'. And since I love to paint my own images, I'm also doing lots of drawing. This combination is 'my favorite' for this week. Who knows what next week will bring--Oh, Well!! Such is the life of an artist!

I post all this to tell you that I did a watercolor using DDD #249, BUT I can't show it to you now. Simply Create Too will have a new applicable challenge in a while and I'll showcase my painting of Diane's Digital Design #249 - "PLUMERIA" then. I'll keep you posted of WHEN. You'll probably have to use a light box [or up against a window on a sunny day] to trace it. Because, you know PC ink will run! By the way, if you use DDD #249 to do a painting, I'd love to see it and showcase your art here on my blog.

Hope you enjoy my new digi--by the way, it'll make a beautiful card TOO!
