Christmas card/picture

Hello everyone and Happy Thanksgiving, I hope you all are having a wonderful time with family and friends on this great holiday. I can almost smell the turkey cooking now. I love Thanksgiving it is my favorite holiday. Just good food with great people, no hassles of buying gifts or any of that. Just great conversation with the people you love.

Oh by the way, this is Donna.....

Today I have a Christmas  picture I made for my younger brother and his wife. She was born and raised in Germany and my brother met her there when he was stationed in the army. They married over there and the ceremony was beautiful, but boy can those people party!!! Any hoot, the background is made from hand made paper and then painted then I attached a painting I did to the front and wrote Merry Christmas in German on it.

I also used some LOVELY ribbon around the outside that was so thoughtfully given to us by The Ribbon Resource, it is just lovely and fit this picture perfectly. Thank you so much Ribbon Resource and go check them out, they have lovely items to choose from.

Well, I don't want to keep you from your busy day, so I will just show a few pics. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Hello again, I hope everyone is feeling well. I know the flu is going around, I got a flu shot for the first time this year. I did NOT want to get what my husband had....UGH!

Today I want to show you a canvas I did, I call it "After The Rain". I took a painting that Leonid Afremov did of a ballerina and changed it up a bit. He has beautiful paintings if you would like to go take a look, He uses a palet knife to paint, I find that a little challenging for me since I have not had much practice with one.

Hope you like it and thank you so much for stopping by.
