Paint Party Friday and August heART

Another great day for Paint Party Friday so another BIG THANKS to Eva and Kristin for keeping it going ♥♥♥♥♥
Congrats to Donna of SPINNING DAYDREAMS for being chosen as the featured artist of the week. What a touching painting she did of herself cuddling her newborn... wonderful memories. 
It's been a busy week around here..trying to keep up with the physical therapy and do art everyday for August heART. The therapy is going great and  working, I am much improved over last week :) YEAH!!!!!!
Today's art is 2 more cards for my Inspirational Quote deck .
 I like the way the first one turned out, but I'm not so sure of the second one... I may have to play with it more later... I'll let it set for a day or so before I decide.

I have apples falling off one of the trees like crazy so it's Applesauce time here :) Just making small batches at a time so as not to over do anything.  I do have to get them picked up quickly though because we have a rather large army of squirrels that ate eating on them as fast as they can. It may be time to get out the sling shot!

  9. the girl on the art card brought such a smile to my face! Good luck with the PT. I'm just beginning it for a shoulder injury.

  10. I love both your cards-the serene setting of the second one really does have a dream like feel. The cartoon gave me a giggle-so true at times...

  11. Wonderful cards Carol...Enjoy your apples... We had two transparent apple trees growing up and peeled apples all summer long... freezing them for winter sauce and apple pies!!

    Hugs Giggles

  12. Love the "choose to dream." Dreaming is a daily activity (meditation) for me and can't imagine (dream) of life without it. Keep creating, tending to those apples, and taking care of yourSelf!

    Thanks, again, for sharing with August heART!
