RCAD 265

Rolodex Card A Day 265
I really had fun creating this card. I used a page from an old reader. We are planning a trip to Montana to see our grandchildren. I really am looking forward to reading to them. That is one of the things I miss most about not teaching. A day could be so chaotic but when I would pull out a book to read to the class, clam and order was restored. In all of life there is nothing better than a good story. Don't you agree?
Here is the process video .

Rolodex Card A Day 263

Rolodex Card A Day 263 was created with pictures of past RCAD that I printed doubles of by accident. 

The quote says, "The way to truly know life is to Love many things." I really think that my cards have taught me that about myself. I was hoping to find one thing I liked to do the most and get very good at that, but I am finding I am one who loves it all and it is in the creating that gives me joy. I love the quote, "I know a little about a lot of things but I am a master of none." 
Here is the process video.

Thanks for stopping and have a wonderful Saturday!

Fun at the Cabin

We are at the cabin enjoying nature. Poor deer is so hungry and I am not sure why. There seems to be plenty to eat. They sure seemed to like the peanuts we had for the chipmunk, and chipmunk liked the sunflower seed we brought for the birds. 
We have had visits from the flying squirrel a little red squirrel, a big gray squirrel and a raccoon. It is a very busy little cottage. Sophie is having fun watching out the window. Her job is to keep the mice from coming in.
Here is a picture of a chickadee eating from my hand.

This video I put to gather with pictures and video of hubby feeding the deer peanuts. 

Nature is a beautiful place! I am so thankful that I have a place to go were I can really enjoy it gifts.

Thanks for stopping and I hope you enjoyed my little pice of paradise.

Rolodex Card A Day 262

Rolodex Card A Day 262
I was using some of the die cuts they had on hand at the Scrapbook Manner in Lake Geneva were I went a couple of weekend ago. I planned this card there and put it together at home.  The quote says; "Life isn't about finding yourself, It's about creating yourself." 
Here is the process video.

RCAD 261

Rolodex Card A Day 261 is a picture of a panda that I drew when I was off for a scrapbook weekend with friends. I saw him somewhere and had to give him a try. He turned out so cute I needed to use him on a card.
 Here is the process video. I try to keep them short. I got this on down to 3 minutes.

The music I have started using came from watching Monica's channel,  bcdoula,  on YT. She is doing a new series of art journal pages every day.  They are wonderful with very inspiring quotes. Monica plays royalty free music from I went and down loaded a few fun songs myself. Thank you Monica for introducing me to incompetech. 

Thank for watching, I hope you have a day full of smiles!

Rolodex Card A Day 260

Rolodex Card A Day 260 was motivated by my garden. The flowers are starting to fade and really I am getting tired of watering them.This is  my favorite time of year. I love when nature takes over and shows off it beautiful colors all by itself.  Come March and April I will be ready to plant and water all over again. 

Here is the process video

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look around.

Rolodex Card A Day 259

This RCAD was motivated by an ATC terryeo1 shared on her channel. There was a beautiful face and it inspired me to draw this face. I do enjoy trying to draw faces. The background was another one I created with my Gelli Plate and Lumiere paint. This card really shines. I wrote on the card She believes only in Kindness.

Here is the process video.

I hope your day is filled with kindness. 
Have a great one!

Rolodex Card A Day 258

I love this focus from the Harbor  Bazaar  Magazine Horoscope, "Focus less on what other people think of you and more on what you think of yourself."

I had fun with some bits and bobs on my desk. These are always my favorite cards.
Here is the video explaining what I did to create this card.
