A Blissful Swap...

I belong to this fun little ATC Swap..

Once a month we swap our little pieces of Art.
There is always a theme and this month the theme


 My swap partner this month was  Michele..

It was a little bit funny that we were matched up this month
because,  I had no idea what to do for DARK.  I knew everyone
was going to do something dark and scary with it being Halloween
and all,  But I really don't do scary that well.. 

The sweet Michele doesn't either.

Here is what she came up with for Dark..
I love it.  Not to scary..
I smiled the moment I opened it..


So here is the
I made for her..

Not to scary either..  I had a blast making this one
even though it probably isn't the DARK  ATC
that comes to mind when you use that prompt.

So if you want to play in this little swap next month
just hop over to Blissful ATC Swap.


I also have something else to share with you,
My daughter likes to play around a bit with her paints
and brushes and look what she made for me..

I just love it..  She know how much I love cats..
Even purple ones.

I hope everyone is enjoying their week.  I know I
am luv'n it because it has been overcast and rainy here
in the desert.  You won't here me say that to often..

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Linda

You are right, they are both not scary at all, not a bit, they are actually very pretty!
Even though I panic when a cat is near, but a purple one sure does look cool, she is such an artist!

Great ATC's LInda! I like your interpretation of dark, and the one you received is lovely. I just have to say though that I LOVE Jessica's painting! She is so talented. I love the purple cat, and those glasses look familiar right? Can't wait to see it in person. Looking forward to the weekend. ;-)
