I must apologize from the bottom of my heart…. the night of November 10th I was feeling really bad – my stomach started cramping and I could not understand why—well that was just the beginning – I was sick to my stomach (throwing up) for over 7 days….I have never been that sick before in my life. I could not even talk or whisper without getting sick to my stomach…and it has taken me until today to sit long enough at my computer to leave a note as to what happened to me. I caught some vicious stomach virus that lasts a good 3-4 weeks…it takes what seems forever for your stomach to stop cramping  etc…every muscle in my body still hurts from it all.

Thank God I can finally sit up for a bit..and check on my emails and update the blog etc….I truly did not think I would be back to this point before the new year.

Well on to better and brighter things….the above flower is one that I digitally painted before I got sick….I love the color purple…I really do not like the white edging on the flower – I will have to work on that…. Well I did not make it the whole month of November for NABLOPOMO but there is always next year…I also wanted to THANK YOU ALL who sent me kind messages and such while I was missing…I so appreciate all the good thoughts and prayers…slowly but surely I am getting there.

I hope that December is just as creative as November was for you all….I am hoping it is for me…Thanks for stopping by..I so appreciate the company.

I was visiting blogs and through Diane M. McKnight’s blog She mentioned a create your own site that sounded like fun called Flame Painter…I went to go play..!!!

So I played and the above is just letting things flow and I love love love it…it really gives one a sense of freedom and just flowing away…it is NOTHING fancy or inspiring…but made me feel dreamy and no pressure…so that was nice…my internet connection is still iffy minute to minute so I wanted to upload something that I created but also quick and fun!! I must go back to the site and play some more!

The dsl company said by Thursday all this internet garbage would be resolved – I so hope so…because this rushing and hoping that I stay on long enough to do anything is driving me crazy.

Just as a side note – the weather in Florida is AWESOME – it was quite cool…(sweater weather) and today it is 78 degrees and the bluest blue skies I have ever seen in a long time. The kind of day to sit at the beach to read or just listen to the ocean ….dreamy!!

Today is day 10 of my double challenge month…loving it!!!

Yes I am stuck on summer graphics pretty  much…but I really like approaching making ATC cards like just something to play with and put together…seems to make things easier for me. I really like all the lil whimsy elements in this one…like the lil crab and the pink fishy…even the kite…it is almost summer in the sunshine state 12 months a year but the reality the beach is only worth going to from April to September – that is our summer…otherwise the water is just too darn cold.

Anyway – our internet has been going in and out since last night even more so I wanted to get this out now before I no longer can get on…I promise as soon as my internet connection is more stable I will be visiting more…right now it is very frustrating getting thrown off constantly and waiting hours to get back on.

I want to THANK you all for stopping by and visiting..I so appreciate the company. This is day 9 of my double challenge month…fun fun fun.

YAY…playing some more with graphics and this is what I came up with…..I love the frog and the lil blue fish…
I love to fish so this is right up my alley…lol…it makes me smile looking at the frog’s face…it seems that fishing agrees with him also.

This is Day 8 of my double month challenge…I think both NABLOPOMO and ART EVERY DAY MONTH are going great. At least I am having fun…ideas are still flowing…so that is all I can ask for.

THANKS so much for stopping by and leaving some love in my comments section….I love hearing from you all and your words truly are encouraging me…PEACE~!~

Today I thought I would share a new digital painting I did recently…I forgot the name of this gorgeous flower but anything in purple I think looks marvelous (can you tell it is my favorite color…lol)

It took me a couple of weeks to complete this one – the veins are more detailed and i like the outer edges getting lighter. I painted this from a photo that a friend of mine sent me…she knows I love painting simple yet beautiful flowers…they just make me happy.

As a side note – the internet has not gone off in 24 hours so this is a beautiful thing also…lol.This is day 7 of my double challenge month – YAY!!!

I want to THANK you all for stopping by and leaving some love in the comments – I so appreciate your visit!!!
Come back tomorrow and see what I come up with!!

Again playing around with some fun graphics and I made this ATC card of a girl on the beach…I thought it was cute..I even managed to stick a lil blue fishy in the water…lol.

I am still having issues with getting and staying on the internet so please bare with me…AT&T are really trying this time to resolve things…it has been WAR..and now they are being very nice…a small example of the insanity I spend over 5 hours on the phone yesterday trying to resolve issues…OMG..I am not doing that again!

I want to THANK you all for stopping by and checking out my lil chica and the beach – she is too cute for me…lol.
This is day 6 of my double challenge month…YAY!!

Yes more graphics to play with – more fun to be had…and another ATC card I have played with.

I love the girl’s eyes…sort of looking down at the cat… I am sure I could do more with this ATC but I was just playing with graphics that I did not use last year and wanted to see what I could do….I feel kind of rusty because I really have not made any ATC cards since last year…so I am trying to get back into the swing of things.

We have been having some major internet connection problems…We belong to AT&T for our dsl connection and for the last week at least we have had some major issues…so today I was told that the dsl is OUT…finished…done…fried…over with…GEEZ – we had to go out and buy another one. Those darn things are EXPENSIVE…I am not a happy camper about spending more money on “unexpected expenses” but it seems to be on going here the last month or so.

Obviously all things are working since I was able to upload my newest creation and write in my blog…but now I have a headache stressing over this garbage. My internet connection is the ONLY connection I have to the outside world—since I am homebound – so no internet makes me a bit nuts…LOL.

Well I hope you enjoyed my new ATC creation…this is day 5 of my double challenge month. THANKS for stopping by and checking things out…I hope you leave a comment – would love some feedback.
