What a great challenge. I decided on a quote - Always remember the beauty of the garden, for there is peace. I used stamps of poppies I've had for a while, but just didn't fine the right project for. I used the Twinkling H2Os to paint the background and poppies, but the colors just don't look quite the same. Well, they're close, I imagine I'll have to break down and invest in a better scanner, but right now, I'm saving up for my son's wedding (the last one...finally!!!!) and probably for surgery on my right hand...I'll see the ortho on 3 May. I really thought I'd need surgery on my spine, but the spine doc took a look at all the tests and determined the hand was in real need of repair or else. I can't imagine how I'll manage being in a cast for 6 weeks or so if it comes down to that. LOL...the family will probably want to ship me off somewhere...well, best wait for the hand surgeon to tell me what's what!
