Paint Party Friday and August heART day 8 and Art Journals Journey

Thanks again to Eva and Kristin!!!! Fridays are all the more special because of this event every week ♥ 
Congrats to Silke as the featured artist of the week! Wonderful art she does and always a pleasure to visit her site !
As you can see by today's art I really am addicted to the Frida Kahlo challenge over at Art Journals Journey.Which as carried over to my August heART and the Inspirational Card Deck I'm making there. 
Another pencil sketch one of my art journals...I may actually try and paint this one for next week ...we'll see. 

Two more cards for my Inspirational Card Deck. 

We have had much needed rain the past two days so the gardens are looking all perky again :) 
 Wild mushrooms in the woods out back... have no idea what kind so we just take photos and admire them every year. 
 The Passion Flower Vines are finally blooming :) They are really late this year due to the cold winter and late cold spring. 
 Surprise Lilies are one of my favs.... they make and ungodly mess in the spring and then disappear to pop up and "SURPRISE" us in August.   
 The Miniature Yellow Rose is really liking the weather this summer.  
The only one of my Giant Sunflower seeds to make it this year. The spring was just too wet and cold for all the seeds I set out early. Hopefully the ones I recently planted will do better for a fall showing. 
Still down with my back and not getting much done except for art and reading. These things just take time I reckon. 
Random Thought for today...
