ONE STITCH AT A TIME


 IKE has done it again.  Masterful work!  I love how IKE will take on the world with her art - she is a courageous artist and puts out art that speaks to everyone, is inclusive - be that class, race, gender, 2 legged, 4 legged, life or death.  There is not much IKE has not sketched and honored us with her creative skills.

I've chosen Fireplace and I DO - the sentiment is my own - because there is nothing more beautiful than the noise of a fireplace - that crackling serene up your spine feeling it exudes. 


And there is nothing better than being with a lover in front of a fireplace.  Fire in and of itself is magic!  It reaches into the soul and unites.  It burns off the bad, it transmutes into the good.

You can find IKE's ART at her Store or at STITCHY BEAR DIGITAL OUTLET.

You will see the wonderful prize for this challenge is the gorgeous February Prize Pack with some Lovely Papers to boot.

Doesn't have to be a Valentine -
Just your version of LOVE

A pet
Snow
A book
Special Foods

Think beyond the box.

LOVING to see what you come up with.


















Happy Sunday

    1. Thank you for the lovely comment Meems! The folder is by Cuttlebug/Provocraft and came as a series called LOVE. I believe I got it from a local store. There were about 5 in the series - big and small.

    1. Thanks Matney!!! The folder is one I ordered called LOVE and it is a Cuttlebug/Provocraft. I believe I got it either from a local store or from their site, now I think of it. As I said to Mimi, there were about 3 large ones right down to inch ones. x
