I am so thrilled to be part of the entry list for the Design Call with some of the best artiste womyn that I know!  And to be part of an entry to a company, with Sal as the Owner, Originator and Boss Lady who is the Brilliant One who sketches out all these lovely designs for us to use.

I have used many of the images on my projects with other DT's and when I heard Sal was opening her own Blog I was blown away - how could you not resist!  There is an opportunity for any one of you to enter this great call.

Go on over to Sal's SLS Lines (the Link is also on both of the pics) and take a look at the requirements for the DT Call. If the art and the call speak to you - jump on in...come swim in the pool of chance with the rest of us!  It's an adventure, and adventure is "being alive in the moment!"  Let's all be alive together with this DT call!!!

I know you will love to work with the images as much as I do.  They are for anyone who wants to take their art up a notch, get really funky and racy with their art, or be sophisticated and classic.  That is the great thing about Sal's art - you can use it anyway you like when purchasing an image - which I highly recommend you do!!!  If the call doesn't speak to you then the wonderful thing about this post is that you are now introduced, though I think that would be unlikely this is your first looksi at Sal's work, to very cool uber images.  Who doesn't love new images to work with....come on, admit it, just don't tell the financier (if it isn't you!!! lol)

Do hop on over - read up Sal's post and be great today!  It's a New Day where you can make new Dreams.

I encourage it!

Squishy Hugz Always,


I will enter this post to companies after the weekend with my art attached. xox


Another uber great challenge with LOC!
This week's Sponsor is THE STAMPING CHEF.
The Digital Image I have chosen is BARN BRAT.

Who doesn't love a sexy cowgirl?  OK, a sexy cowboy is better but a foxy cowgirl...pretty funky cool.  For this image, I used some Digital Elements for the background.  The image was so adorable that I could not resist making her a "bad girl" as you will see.

Hop on over to Left of Centre, show us what you've got for this challenge, and as always, Anything Goes if you don't want to follow the theme of the day, which is STITCHING (you can see my faux stitching on my label and at the bottom of the card.)

See you soon!

Yoga is a wonderful form of Meditation and a practice I began many years ago and have resumed.  A wonderful studio is in my neighbourhood that offers many different types of Yoga.  I love how the practice has become so diverse.  So when I found out this Challenge with PUNK YOU GIRL LOLITA was to be based on a SONG I immediately went to my list of YOGA TUNES.

I remember the days of Bob Marley well, visiting Jamaica, seeing Bob and the Wailers and now taking up with his son Ziggy.  LOVE is still the message in the bottle for the Marley clan - something that sums up my own mantra so the song was perfect.

I hope you listen to it, watch the vid and enjoy the message.

I find it serene, heart warming but most of all a basic truth.  And Yogi Kai, by The East Wind seems to fit right in with the song.  This was a really great challenge to be asked to create.  Thanks Kay!

DIGI:  Yogi Kai:  The East Wind
