Paint Party Friday!!!

I wanted to start by saying
THANK YOU
so much for all your sweet comments on my
last post..  I enjoyed reading all of them..
And I really do think it would be so nice if we could get
together for a morning coffee and a chat!
And by the looks of it I think you agree with me!!



So I am back to play along with
Paint Party Friday..

I have created another little canvas..
I really do enjoy painting these little pieces of mixed media Art.


They are only 2x2



I painted the background with pink acrylic paint and then
I added some pink scrapbook paper.. 
and then I layered the butterfly on top also cut out of
scrapbook paper.. Then more stamping, panting and even a little puff paint!!



But I think I am done with my little canvass for a while. 
I have been neglecting my Art journal..
Not to mention my card making..

Thanks so much Eva and Kristin for hosting such a fun party!!





::::

I also wanted to share with you some Birthday gifts I received from some 
sweet friends.. I had every intention on posting this earlier.. 
I'm so sorry!

I received these beautiful Handmade Items from my girlfriend
Becca From Patina Moon!  


Yes that is a wall hanging that says "My Happy Place"
Such wonderful stitching my friend.. 


And here is a little tag.. She tatted that little butterfly.




And then she made me some extras to put on some of my projects..
I just love all those bright colors..
Thank you so much my sweet friend..

 ****

Then I also received these a beautiful card along with some
Vintage postcard from Deb all the way over from England..
I just love getting Royal mail!



Thanks so much Deb.. 
That was so sweet of you!!


Well that's all I have for now..
Thanks you so much for stopping by and visiting.
I do hope you all have a fabulous weekend..

Hugs, Linda
