I woke up today feeling grateful!
The stars so bright, I found myself getting out of bed at 2 & 4, just so I could go and get a better look. I gave in at 5a.m. got up and watched the sunrise.
How beautiful a day to be alive - focusing on LOVE.
Creating this years Valentines day cards, a somber mood towards getting close due to a deadly virus spreading across the globe - put me in a different Valentine mood. A realistic one. Wash your hands Valentine!
If you love me - you'll keep your cold to yourself.
I know we don't 'make ourselves' or others intentionally ill but sometimes WE SLACK on simple ways to keep ourselves healthier. Eat better.
Rest more and do not spread your germs.
WASH your hands. Thank you
I created these cards because I do care.
Education is key - sure let's have some fun Valentines day - let's keep it real too.
My son gave me the idea for the 'Kissing booth which I thought was very cute.
Several cards were created & are available for purchase!
>>>E mail me to find out availability<<<
There are cards for couples & cards for self love..
stay tuned for more & stay healthy.
I am forever grateful for those who show us LOVE
& for all those who work to keep us safe & healthy.
Surrounded by snow! Have a peek out of my studio window... I think as I paint,
dreams come true.
No wonder I'm painting snow people! Rain kissed by the cold.
Remember being a kid - afraid of ACID rain? Perhaps it was just me.. lol
I painted this because it made me giggle. That simple.
The best part about being a card creator is all the fun I get to have tinkering & thinking - Painting snowmen is just as fun as building them,
without the -16 weather & cold toes!
More Snowmen cards on the way!
I am forever grateful for these frosty friends putting smiles on many.
Currently all over Canada.
Don't you love December!?
Ho ho ho! Here we go!
My apoligies for not posting! I've moved & trying to sort out internet issues...
here's hoping - it's all been resolved!
How does Santa dry his bud? He hangs it to dry!
Ho ho hee hee! Cannabis under the tree - for me!
These little originals look very sweet framed (standard 5x 7) and would make a lovely Christmas gift for your favourite bud! Just saying... ;)
Tis the season & I'm in the mood! More Christmas cards are coming - several are currently on my desk!
AS a christmas bonus I will be uploading a special sweet ornament t for you to cut out & color! Free - just for visiting. Stay tooned.
I am forever grateful for the holiday season & the happy feeling - that comes from creating cards!
I had to go to the dentist... I am not fond of the dentist.
I am not fond of 'going' to a dentist (ever) the actual person, I usually like.
I have a new dentist & liked him immediately - I don't know about you but I must feel at peace with the person I trust to explore the 'caverns in my mouth'- lol - as my dentist put it.
I would never want to be a dentist. Have you ever thanked your dentist? Why not?
Yes, they get paid - but why not take a moment to thank someone for the JOB they do - lucky for us - they enjoy doing it. Money or no money. I painted this card BEFORE my appointment - because I was somewhat nervous - but then I thought, we'll maybe he won't "get the pun". As soon as he walked in the office I blurted, "You know that movie.." "You want the TRUTH!?... & before I could finish the dentist replied "You want the truth! You cant handle the truth!" hahaha.. perfect. He knew & then I said "I made you a card."
Yes, I am very thankful for a good dentist. Thank your dentist.
If you want an original- send me a message- or create your own...
just make sure you thank your dentist, dr., anyone.
Everyone likes to be 'Thanked for their service, now & then. ;)
Tomorrow a card about Medicine - good to send to a Dr. or friend.
I am grateful for dentists who ease our pain.
A gaggle of Turkeys crossed the road to my property... no joke.
I was thrilled and could hear them a couple of days later as they wandered the woods close to the house. A friend expressed "they are UGLY birds". Is there such a thing as an 'ugly bird'- I guess so. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder - but yes, turkeys are not the prettiest of the feathered kind. Still, you know you want it. Turkey.
This card is sure to give a chuckle- or a 'cluckle' to the host cooking your bird this year - give mom a card she's sure to keep - because it's and original & it's an ugly turkey card - who can say they have one? Not many. Start a new tradition this ThanksGiving.
Either way- it's turkey time soon- time to strut your STUFFing!
Fall & Turkeys- what a wonderful start to this lovely October month.
I am forever grateful for wild turkeys in the woods - ugly or not.
More thanks Giving cards on the Original cards page. .. have a peek.
Are bears grumpy in the morning? I can be... especially on friday the 13th.
If I was supersticious I'd hideout at home, I'm not - I'm out for an adventure today... life's to short not to love black cats and everyday (even friday the 13th) A lucky day it will be!
I've been 'a bear' in the morning a few times, how about you?
On cold Canadian mornings while it's still dark and the dogs need to go outside to relieve themselves but there's 4 feet of snow on the ground that was not there the night before - Brrrrr.... it can feel a bit grumpy until, I've had my coffee or tea. Not this winter- everyday is an adventure & we are aflutter with what this winter will bring! Painting snow - is the way to go- weee! I might be a grumpy bear when I first wake for a few moments but I prefer to be a content bear wandering the woods searching for blackberries, how about you?
I am forever grateful for Grumpy moments...
they remind us all to appreciate the joyful ones!
Do what makes you feel... forever grateful to be alive!
Weeeed! Life is for enjoying!
I am forevergrateful for creative exercise & entertainers.
Weeeeed! The weather is lovely - time to break out the bikinis' buds!
Summer is almost officially here- finally... time to put on your bikini & embrace that beautiful body - no matter the shap, size or shade!
We are all beautiful.
Want to invite a bud out for some summer frolic & adventure?
Mail them a cute little card!
Everyday we are alive is an adventure - don't ever forget it buds.
I am forever grateful for baithing suit weather!
Well of course there was going to be a Nurse Bud! This Nurse bud is bound to make someone feel GREAT! This card would be a cute little reminder to your favorite nurse that they are LOVED & appreciated. Or perhaps You had a nurse -that went above & beyond... I know In my lifetime I've met countless compassionate nurses- far more than Dr.s ' (just saying buds...) nurses rock & are rocks. OR ou could give this to a Bud thats feeling under the weather... sure to make them feel better. You might even want to include a little medicine. Weeeeeeeeed!
They say the best medicine is "laughter" & yes it makes us feel good... a common side effect of cannabis can often be laughter - No wonder it's wanted to become legalized for so long & has... and will contiue to be.
I am forever grateful to all the nurses who help raise our spirits, look after our bodies & show compassion when buds need it most.
Guess what buds! A little side line has already been born from the Weeeed card line... Meet My Little Buddies! Weeeeeeeed!
A card was created for a friend - he was turned into bud to say Thanks Bud!
Then I made a birthday card for a bud - simply because I thought a 'Renovating Bud would be funny & the next thing I knew - Weeeee! I was off to see my own Dr. Bud - so why not take the opportunity to thank him for all he's done all these years... Dr. Bud was born! Hee heee hee
I douby my Dr.s sitting hitting the bong in the evening - but it's still a fun opportunity to educate & say - thank you after all it's what I do.
Have you thanked your Dr.? Or Nurse? You should.
Everyone appreciates being appreciated... thanked for their service.
These are the first few little Buddies created - Would you like me to turn your pal into a bud? I can arrange it!
I am forever grateful for wonderful Buds in my life who inspire me to paint cards.
News! Celebrations! Creations! Art demos & more! This is where you'll see the creative side of Forever Grateful Greetings come to life.
