A friend’s mom was having a birthday and asked for postcards with cats to wish her a happy day. It was easier for me to use postcards that were cut and ready for art.
I decided to combine collage using gelli-printed paper and Neocolors water-soluble crayons (since they happened to be next to me.) Here are the ones I did for her mom:
They were so much fun to make that I decided to create several for my mother-in-law too! She loves flowers! 🌷
I know I enjoy receiving cards in the mail so I think she will too. I will make several in advance so I can mail one a week.
Who do you know that would love to receive a postcard in the mail with your art?

Thank goodness this Birthday bird showed up last week!!
Just in time to celebrate my hubby’s birthday! 🙂 Which happened to arrive on Thanksgiving day this year…
So happy it showed up in time with Turkey day and all! Lol!
My husband used to be a wheat farmer before we got married. I found a dictionary definition and illustration from a children’s dictionary on a plow which seemed perfect for him:
Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!!
May your day yield a field of happiness! Cheers! 🙂

We recently celebrated my hubby’s birthday or “bird-day” as we now call it since my obsession with birds. Hehe! 😊
I came across this quote recently, “Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” William Arthur Ward
I wish ALL of you, my friends a very HAPPY Bird-Day on your special day! 😊
What gift would you like to unwrap for yourself? I’d love to hear from you!
Have a HAPPY day! 😊🌈💖

I am still experimenting with candles:
I combined several art mediums for this piece. I experimented with Tombow markers, Pan Pastels, collage and color pencils. I used my own Gelli-printed papers for collage and also added a scrapbook page on acetate with a FALL theme.
These almost look like birthday candles. You know the ones that you try to blow out but they just keep relighting. My husband’s birthday is this month and he is entering the age where he can start getting the Senior discount. Feels a little like those trick candles. Age has a way of doing that to a person. lol!
Enjoy your day! 😊
